WOYWW #97 – Baptism card

Hi everyone on WOYWW,on my desk this week is this baptism card, which has been ordered by a work colleague, who is Polish, hence the spelling of the name!
I’ve missed the last couple of weeks- life keeps getting in the way, blast it! lol.

The Cross image is from 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.

  1. Baptism, Wedding and that sort of card are the ones I find hardest to do, but that one of yours is really special, Shaz. I like those tags too, unfussy and just the right images for you. You need to get rid of work and get down to more crafting, you know, more relaxation. Speak to you soon.

  2. Very nice baptism card and I love the tags. My friends tell me I am bipolar cause I am doing cutsey fussy stuff one minute and grunge the next. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #78

  4. Gorgeous baptism card and it looks so elegant. Love the contrast with the stamped tags. I noticed in your previous post the lovely card you made with the stamped scape scene …. I am sure I have something very similar in my stash. Must get it out and give it a run. Paper transformed arrived and I am loving the detail. Thanks for visiting.

  5. Your space is making great accomplishments! I love your baptism card-very striking! And its always so good to have tags inked and ready to go. Have a great week!

  6. Hi Shaz, even loading from Picasa does not always work. That is what I did on Wednesday and lost two of the five straight away. I am still having problems seeing pictures from others as well. Reading the forums, it seems to be a common problem, so, hopefully, they will sort it out soon.

  7. I love the medallion cross, it makes a gorgeous card, very classy.
    I see you have been playing with those lovely Lavinia stamps too. Your tags are looking stunning.
