Docrafts Creativity Magazine Card. Not chosen for publication see it here first.

Hi, Happy New Year.

I was asked to provide some projects for Januarys Docrafts Creativity Magazine. This was one of them but it wasn't chosen for the publication.


1. Stamp the back section of the A5 stepper card with the flowers from the Moments of Faith stamp set in Silver. Emboss with clear embossing powder. Rub loosely over the stamped images with silver shimmer chalk. (You could use lilac, blue or pink if you prefer)
2. Take grey card and emboss it with the embossing folder. Cut to size and fix to the front lower section of the card.
3. Using 2 shades of grey card cut out two of the largest sizes from the nesting die and emboss the largest sized card the same as the front section.
4. Stroke the embossed sections of the embossed card with silver pigment ink & dry with the heat tool.
5. Layer the two pieces of grey card and add the made up cross from the decoupage set.
6. Add two strips of silver to the top and two to the bottom of the back section.
7. Stamp your Christening sentiment onto grey card using white ink and powder. Matt & Layer then fix to the card over the two top strips.
8. Take the purple rectangle from the decoupage set and add the christening sentiment from the sticker set. Mount onto DS foam pads and lay on top of the two lower strips.
9. Add the decoupage flower section to the front of the card.
10. Stamp out the cross with sentiment in white ink & powder onto grey car, heat emboss, cut out and add to the front of the card.
11. Using the silver glittered ribbon loop one end and glue to the card from one side up to the cross and from the other side across to the flowers.
12. Make two bows out of lilac organza ribbon and add to the front of the card.

TIP:  Use Anita’s 3D gloss to fix your ribbon to the card. It’s also great added to the tips of the ribbon to stop them fraying. I added gloss to parts of the decoupage for extra shine.
