On your Christening

Good morning again. Please scroll down for my Cards und More post.

It's a double post Tuesday which means there's another challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
This week we want to see projects that focus on -


Heat or dry or both if you want!
Here's my card using embossing folders.

My Son in Law's friend's son is being christened shortly so they asked me to make a card for the occasion.
I used a stamp by LOTV for the image which I coloured with Copics and cut out using a MFT pierced rectangle die. Although its for a christening, it is for a boy so I kept the embellishments to an organza ribbon and bow but used some of my Inka Gold wax in platinum and steel blue to give the card a special feel. The background panel was embossed using an old folder of unknown make and then rubbed over with a little of the platinum wax to bring up the texture. The blue panels were embossed with a Cuttlebug Swiss dot folder before being covered in a mix of steel blue and platinum.
The sentiment and name were computer generated.

That's about it, now it's your turn. Check out the rest of the DT's for more inspiration.
