All God’s Grace


A good friend of mine asked me to create a special Christening card for her, for her Goddaughter.  I decided this would be the perfect excuse to get my fabulous new Large Letters Framelits Dies out!! I must admit I wasn’t totally sold on these dies to begin with. They’re great if you’re into scrap booking, but I don’t do a lot of that.  It was actually my team members who kept talking about how fantastic these dies were, so I decided to give in to peer pressure (it doesn’t take much persuasion anyway 😉) and purchase the Letters for You Bundle.  After making this card, I’m so glad that I did!

I started by running my letter dies through the Big Shot with some dazzling diamonds glimmer paper.  Sienna is not the shortest of names when using these large letters, which meant I had to increase the dimensions of my card.  I would recommend laying your letters out before you start sticking anything, to make sure your words  actually fit on your card front!

I decided on flirty flamingo as my main colour, so I used a sponge dauber to edge each letter in flirty flamingo as I wanted to give my letters some definition.

My sentiment came from All God’s Grace stamp set, and again I stamped this along with my little bird in flirty flamingo, on whisper white cardstock.

I wrapped a piece of flirty flamingo ruched ribbon around a crumb cake card front, and then adhered my letters with strips of dimensionals.  I punched my sentiment out with the triple banner punch and adhered this also with dimensionals.

I adhered my bird to the top of the banner, three flowers which I stamped from Petite Petals and punched out using the Petite Petals Punch, and added pearls to the centre of each flower and a flirty flamingo enamel heart for good measure. An adorable card for the adorable baby Sienna 😘😘😘
