WOYWW #97 - Baptism card
I've missed the last couple of weeks- life keeps getting in the way, blast it! lol.
Creative Expressions, Kildare Cross,HH1217L. There are a number of different crosses on their site, all wood-mounted, although my stamp is an unmounted version.They are medallion images, with means they can be stamped multiple times and then layered. I stamped the image twice in silver, onto silver paper and heat embossed them. It was also stamped once onto white vellum, and onto white silk effect card, in Brilliance Moonlight White , sprinkled with Stamp'n'stuff White Pearl embossing powder. From the two silver images, the whole image was cut out, and from the second stamped image just the centre was cut out.The vellum image was trimmed next, following the curves of the next set of lines, and also including the centre. The white stamped image was cut down to the smaller cross. Each layer was added with silicone glue, and finally an acrylic gem was added to the centre. Diamond Stickles were drawn around the base cross and the central circle.A sheet of A4 white pearl card was scored & folded, and the bottom half covered with white embossed card, and the top half with a glittered vellum.The join was concealed with a strip of ornate sticky back ribbon.
I used Nesties Labels 4 to cut one white & one silver label. The sentiment & name were added with peeloffs in silver. A length of Organza ribbon was wrapped around the spine & tied in a knot.
The rest of my desk looks like this:
The tags on the left have been inked with various Distress inks, and the stamped tags have been cut from the pastel card sheets I made a few weeks ago.
And I have been busily cutting tags of assorted sizes, from a manilla coloured card, and from white.
