Card for Christening

Hello and happy Monday! Here is a slimline card I created for a girls Christening.

I used die cut dies by Elizabeth Craft Designs (the hearts, hot air balloons and the label) and a German Tonic Studios die cut die sentiment in the middle. The papers are from my older stash and the little birdies are from Studio Calico back in the day when I subscribed their monthly kits.

The little dots are done with Ranger Liquid Pearls and Tonic Nuvo Glitter Drops. The label is adhered with 3D foam to add dimension to the card.

Inside the card there is a pocket for a gift card/money/gold coin (this is a popular tradition here) to be added inside.

The dies I used are sadly retired. But if you want to make a similar card, I am sure there are alternatives available at your favorite store. I will add alternatives to the links – should you be interested.

Have a fabulous day!

Creative Midsummer Challenge – Day 11

Here is another card I made for the Creative Midsummer Challenge. The theme for day 11 was “seagull”.

I again used plenty of old papers for this card (good to get those into use!!!). For die cutting I used Elizabeth Craft Designs nesting circle dies and the birds are done with a STAMPlorations stencil and white gesso.

The grey wings are done with a water brush pen and some Stabilo all black. I love this pencil – I use it EVERYWHERE! And the sentiment is again stamped with a Klartext stamp. The sentiment translates to: “More sea. Saltwater always helps”.

Have a great day!

Zur Taufe

Hello and happy Friday! Today I am sharing a card I made for a baby boy´ s Christening:

This one is in slimline format and has papers from a Moda Scrap paper collection I got from Elizabeth Craft Designs a few years back. I just love those cut little giraffes and could not resist using them. The centerpiece is done with a Stampin´ Up stamp and Distress Oxide inks and is layered on top of a Elizabeth Craft Designs scalloped circle die cut piece. The sentiment is die cut with a Tonic Studios German die cut die and on the bottom I have used a few Nuvo Drops.

The ribbon is from my older stash, but worked out perfectly with the colours of the papers. I chose a very clean and simple design, because I wanted to showcase the gorgeous papers.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend!

Supplies (partly alternative product suggestions):

Snowflake cards

Hello and happy Saturday! Here is another set of Christmas card I did the other day. Here I again used Elizabeth Craft Designs dies to create the white banner piece into the middle.

Inside the snowflake I used either holographic or golden cardstock and added a brad from my older stash as a focal point. The ribbons are also from my older stash. Good to use up older product again.

The stamping is done with Klartext stamps and the papers are from Mintay Paper Sweetest Christmas collection and Vicki Boutin´ s Warm Wishes collection.

It is so easy to make a few cards using the same basic idea, but by changing the colours and paper styles the design results several different type of cards so easily.

I hope I could inspire you a little with these simple-to-do cards!
Take care,

Christmas cards 2022 – Set 2

Hello everyone and happy Thursday! Today I am sharing a second set of Christmas cards, created using Vicky Boutin Warm Wishes collection papers and Klartext stamps.

On this card I used a premade card base as my background, added some Distress Oxide stamping with a Klartext stamp and a black bolder sentiment stamped with Versafine ink. The 3D Chipboard sticker is also from the Warm Wishes collection.

For my second card I combined the Warm Wishes collection papers and Chipboard stickers and added some dimension with 3D foam and some cute dots with Liquid pearls by Ranger Inc. Stamping is again done with Klartext stamps.

For my last card I used older product from my stash, a Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut die and paper as well as a Klartext stamp. The shiny dots are done with Stickles by Ranger Inc.

It´ s good to finally have some Christmas cards done. Hope your week is getting along nicely! Take care,
