Baptism Blessings

Hi, it's Jenny posting!  I wanted to make a frilly card for a friend's daughter's baptism and this is what I designed.

I originally just made the card using the Spellbinders Floral Oval dies, but I decided to back the whole die on white A2 sized card stock so it would be easier to display.

The only opening in this card is the central Floral Oval.  I used an A2 size top-fold card with the Spellbinders Floral Oval die, making sure to push the die up a bit higher than the top of the card stock, so the top wouldn't be cut all the way.  This way I still had a card with a folded uncut edge and not just a die-cut.  I then cut the Spellbinders Floral Oval a second time, out of a single piece of white card stock, and glued this piece to the front of the folding oval, to mask the fact that the top of the other card was not a complete cut.

I used the smaller oval in the set to create the top oval which I popped up using Joy! Foam Pads.  I cut the cross from a Spellbinders die (that Beverly can special order from the CCNS store). I used the cross as a stencil and colored it with distress ink. 

The inside of the card is stamped with a blessings sentiment and flat-backed white pearls were added to the front for extra interest.  This was a really quick card to create. Thanks for stopping by!
