On your Christening Day

Good afternoon all, apologies for there not being a blog post this morning! I totally forgot about it, I really don't know where my head is at this week lol. 

Anyway, this card is one I made for my great niece's Christening on Sunday. It was meant to be very simple with just an image and the sentiment. But... I don't do simple very well, I always think it needs something else, so this is how it ended up.

The church stamp is from a Papermania set called Village. We have had it a couple of years and have looked everywhere for the matching dies for it. They are made by Xcut, but they were discontinued so I haven't been able to track them down. But I decided it was about time it came out of the packet and be used anyway lol.

I stamped the church with Memento ink and then coloured it with Copic markers. For the sentiments, I wrote them on the PC and then printed the sheet on my laserjet printer. Then I ran it through the Minc Machine with some gunmetal foil.

As you can see I couldn't just leave it there, so I dug out some very tiny stamps from a couple of sets and started stamping them around the image.

It didn't end up with just the few I imagined, but it reminded me of confetti, so I liked it anyway lol.

Hope you do too, take care and I'll see you soon.
