MANday Monday: Albie's Christening Card & Digitial Scrapbooking

Happy MANday Monday!

Today is a double whammy. My neighbour requested that I made a Christening card for her wee Grandson Albie but she also wanted me to put writing on a gift she bought him. Look: —>

Its a box that holds the certificate and also has a photo book built in to the lid. Its really pretty, and I thought the best way to add writing would be to design a insert to go into the framed section. So I spent a few hours this week playing with some digi scrapping. All the of papers used were freebies from various sources. (I never really do digi, so as a hindsight i realised that i should have taken a note of what all i used. Sorry. If you really want to know who they are from please drop me a message and I will go through all my supplies and figure out which ones i have used here)

Here it is close up, what do you think?

I don’t do a lot of digi scrapping -the last thing i made was Piper’s birthday invitation back in March. It is fun, but i think i would still rather play with real paper.

I wanted the card to coordinate with the design of the box, so I used a white base and used blues and black/ brown trims. Take a look…

I had printed out one of the digi cards that was too small for the frame in the box, so I had the idea to reuse some of the elements from that like the name frame and his cute little photo {just look at that smooshy lil face!}. I also printed the text ‘to a special grandson’ and ‘on your christening day’ from the computer just so i could get these just right. This way I can coordinate the colours and size and the perfect wording too. As I already had the computer out in the craft room it was easy enough to do this.

The black text paper is old. So very old. It has been my staple go-to paper for Christenings or other religious type cards, and I only have a teeny bit left. Worst thing is that i have no idea which company made it. Its really like a vellum with a silver foil print, so i had to mount it onto cardstock first to make it nice and sturdy.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Thank you for your sharing. I am worried that I lack creative ideas. It is your article that makes me full of hope. Thank you. But, I have a question, can you help me?
