I've made this waterfall card for one of my orders - the remit was a 'cute' christening card.
Sorry about the pic of the co-ordinating box - it's a bit blurry!

Yes, you read that name correctly - she's called 'Boo Anne'! And no, the parents aren't celebs!

Anyway, it's taken a few hours to get this right to be honest, the name is stamped, but I had trouble getting it straight and joined up - I am just rubbish at straight lines! I've used a few peel-offs of crosses as I didn't want the expense of buying 'religious' themed stamps.
The stickers are by Eno crafts - fab value at only £1.95 for the sheet - and I've 2 left over to decorate the inside of the card.
Received a lovely parcel in the post today - some SU! goodies bought from Alex. Take a look at her blog, she makes such lovely things. I've bought the Hodgepodge Hardware set, In the stars stamp set and the star punch. I've got another order for a 1st communion card (for a boy), so I can see the star set being really useful for that. Although I have also seen a Magnolia 'Edwin' that may also be useful. (I can feel my left click /' buy ' finger getting itchy!) I had a look at decoupage sheets for communion cards, but TBH, they all put me in mind of funerals, so I think modern and fresh is the way to go!
Are we all excited about the Stamp with Us challenge tonight? I've got my envelope ready - I'm going to set out tools etc, I can't wait! See you on the live chat on there!

  4. WOW: I love this Christening Card Alison, reminds me a little of the Stampin' Up! stamp set "Wild About You". I've not attempted a waterfall card yet, but I might have to CASE you very soon :)

    Thanks for sharing,
