One Card – Two Occasions

Hello…hope you are enjoying a beautiful spring weekend.  It is absolutely beautiful here today and I am really enjoying what is left of this weekend.

I’m not playing along with any challenges today…very unusual for me.  So today I was just creating on my own to see what my brain could hatch.  Here is my little hatchling……

I was in need of a First Communion card and a Baptism card for two of my great-nieces.  Since both cards were for girls, I wanted to come up with a design that I could use for both and that was super feminine.

I created the card on the right first and thought it needed a little more detail.  So I did the second card using the Elegant Dots embossing folder.  Not sure which card I will be using for which occasion but they are both very fitting.

The card base is Whisper White Thick cardstock and the mat is Pink Pirouette.  The cross is layered on a Tea Lace Doilie using Dimensionals.  The cross is Crumb Cake and was made using the retired Modern Label punch.  It needs to be punched three times as the long part of the cross uses 1 1/2 labels.  This is no problem since the flower is covering the intersection.  The also retired Boho Flower punch was used to create the flower.  I just punched a few and layered them until I had a fluffy flower and then added a Basic Pearl.  The ribbon is Pink Pirouette Seam Binding.

For the sentiment, both front and inside, I used the Trust God stamp set which is retiring this year.  I stamped it in Soft Suede ink and punched it out using the Scalloped Oval punch, also on the retirement list.
