hi. my name is Michelle, i am 30 years old. Im married to Matt and we have a 4 year old boy called William. i work full time as a paediatric staff nurse at our local hospital.
I started making cards in 2010 as a way to relax after suffering with postnatal depression. My hobby soon became an obsession, lol, and i now spend a lot of time (and; money) on my new love. I have also had a little dabble in knitting and sewing and discovered a crafty side to me i never knew i had!
Ive fuinished off a couple more of the christening cards today, so thought id add them. unfortunately my camera seems to be playing up and not producing very good pics......
The frames were made with an xcut scalloped oval die i have and the little bible i had in my stash on many little ready made die cuts. i made the cross with the robo and also did the wording with it. i added liquid pearls (like stickles) to finish.
This card is to be sent from children, so i wanted it to be less formal. I created the cross with a craft robo template (tina fitch - see previous post). the writing was also done on the robo. The baby is one of my many ready made die cuts ive brought along the way, coloured with spectrum noirs. I love his cheeky little face, he really resembles kyle (the boy being christened). I have finished with star peel offs to soften the look.
