Christening card

I made this card a while back for my great niece’s Christening. It combines Hunkydory with stamping and die cutting!

Materials used:SAM_2484(watermarked)
Hunkydory sentiment panel from stash
Free digi stamp of candle and holly
Copic pens
Britannia dies flower die
shimmer paper
white card


Crop the image to remove the flame and some of the holly leaves.

Print image at required size positioning on the card so that the fold will be at the top of the candle, fold into a card and cut around the two sides and the bottom.

Colour the leaves with Copics.

Die cut the required number of pieces to make up the roses from the shimmer paper then colour with Copics. Make up the roses.

Cut out a flame from spare card and colour with Copics.  Cut the flame out leaving a tab at the bottom. Cut a small slit in the fold at the top of the card and insert the tab on the flame. Glue the tab to the back of the card. (It can be covered by putting an insert into the card).

Stick the Hunkydory panel onto the front of the candle. Arrange the roses at the base of the card and stick.

I think I got away with turning the holly leaves into rose leaves!

Thanks for visiting. Take care.




About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
