Plate style Christening Card

I have made this Christening 'Plate' for the Christening of a baby boy.  Wanted to make something a bit different.

I have used 2 sets of grand circle cutting dies - the fancy one is Spellbinders Grand Decorative Circles one, the other is a plain set.  I have added just a touch of blue & kept most of the card white, but used embossing and decorative cuts to give texture and interest to the card.  I have used the LOTV Art pad for the topper, these little pads are great when you need a topper quickly .  The flourish is one by Wild Rose Studio, leafy frond is Cheery Lynn, Marianne & Spellbinders flower dies, pearls and gems to complete.  I created the stand myself as the one I had was not large enough to take the weight, embossed to match the rest of the card.

Floral Box Card

So long since I have last used my blog - I really mean to post more regularly.

I just had to have a go at this very popular design.

I am very pleased with the outcome of my first box card and am sure I will make some more, they are a bit fiddly to construct but worth the extra effort.  I got to use my new fave tattered lace die too.
