I live in a small, quiet college town in Vermont. My husband and I have been married 30 years. We are both native Vermonters and have raised four children. I cannot imagine living any other place. The winters are long and you need a craft to help you through it. I have fallen in love with my cricut!! I've always been a crafty person since I was a child and have discovered a new passion.....card making!!
I made this baptism card for someone at work. I had forgotten I had order some shimmery paper from Stampin Up and it came yesterday (I'm on vacation...Yippee). It was perfect for this card. Although the picture does not show how pretty it really did look.
The Wedding Cartridge
A2 Card (5.5 X 4.25)
Everything is with Stampin Up Shimmery White paper
Flower Vine Sizzix embossing folder
The cross was cut at 4" in shadow and then regular cut
and here is the verse I found on the internet:
You’ve been a special blessing Since the day that you arrived, Bringing so much happiness And filling hearts with pride… And now that it’s your Christening Day, This brings a special prayer That God will always keep You in the shelter Of His Care.
I made this card for a wonderful women who is retiring from where I work after 26 years of employment. She is Irish so you will understand why I made this card.
The caldron will say "Flo's Retirement Fund" . I didn't have clear labels so some women are work will add that for me since I am on vacation and will show up for the gathering later this week. Here are the dimensions:
