A Special Christening

Tomorrow my best friend Kathy's first grandchild is being christened. I wanted to make a special card for the event. Here's what I designed using the picture and cross from the invitation.

More than One Fold...

This week's challenge at Party Time Tuesdays is to create a design that uses more than one fold. I made a slanted tri-fold card using an image from this week's sponsor, Fred She Said called Marigolds & Morpho.

To make a slanted tri-fold card I cut the first and third panels in half diagonally from the top of the foldline to the bottom right and left corners. When the two outer panels are folded in over the center panel, they cross each other. I used ribbon to tie the card shut. I printed the digi image twice and colored one with Copics. I only colored the butterfly on the other, cut it out, and popped it up over the butterfly on the first image. When I decide on the sentiment, I'll stamp it on the top of the ivy DSP on the center panel so that you can see it when the card is closed. When the card is open there will be room for a hand written note.
Come join the challenge at PTT. We'd love to see your folded creations.

Play Ball!

The Hambo Hoedown challenge this week is to create a design that incorporates a pendant or a banner. I used Hambo Stamps' digi image Bat Boy  that I received free for playing in last week's challenge. Here's my card...


Isn't the background paper perfect for this image? It's printed vellum that I mounted on blue cardstock. I bought it a long time ago. I guess it's true...if you keep something around long enough, you'll eventually use it.

All Tied Up!

This week's challenge at Party Time Tuesdays is to make a Father's Day project. Can you believe that it's is less than two weeks away? I used this cute image from QKR Stampeded.

The image is called All Tied Up. I thought it went perfectly with the Father sayings paper that I've had forever and the tie paper that I bought recently.
Hop on over to PTT and join the challenge. Make a card for someone special.

Bubbles! Bubbles! Bubbles!

This week's challenge at the Hoedown is to use bubbles with any Hambo digi or rubber stamp. I looked through my Hambo stamps and found this funny image

It's Hambo Stamps Dentures and the sentiment is Getting Old Bites. There are bubbles in the glass and I thought the patterned paper looked like lots of colored bubbles. I made a big bubble from vellum and popped it up with part of the sentiment. Now to decide who to send it to....hehehe!!
