Boyish Baptism Card

Religious cards are always a tough one for me. For one, I don't have a lot of religious stamps. Okay, I have ONE cross. That's all! I was checking out a few cute sets from Stampin' Up! but hadn't ordered them. I really need a good go-to set for these types of celebrations.

Here's a card I made for my husband's cousin's other child, who celebrated his baptism the same day as his sister's 3rd birthday party! I really love how this came out and I had NO idea in my mind about what I had wanted to do, which as my one friend laughs and calls me the glue-and-go girl. :) This is one of those cards where I did just that! Enjoy!

As you can see, I used the emboss resist technique and I loooooove the way it turned out. I'll be doing this more often.

Pennant Birthday Card

Here's a card I recently made for my husband's cousin's daughter for her 3rd birthday. I had some fun using scraps I thought would be cute with the pennant stamps from SP & Company! And a big ol' 3 I stamped with a small heart from one of my Stampin' Up! sets and colored with Copics to match :)

And what's a birthday card without sparkle?! I had to add a couple strips of pretty Martha Stewart glitter to give it a little punch of glam.
