Baptism Card

My sister's first child (who is now my Goddaughter!) was baptized this weekend and I wanted to make a special card for the occasion.  Unfortunately, I didn't plan ahead and since I was out of town visiting family, I didn't have my usual stash of supplies and tools. :(

So I looked around on Google Images for an idea and found a card which was originally posted on SplitCoastStampers (LOVE LOVE LOVE their website!)...I decided to try and re-create it with the few supplies I had on hand.

I placed two pieces of white cardstock together and used a ruler to draw lines on one of them to create the outline of the dress (I couldn't fold it in half or the card would have been too small).  I  cut them out and adhered the very top of the shoulders together.  Then, using my scalloped scissors, I cut the sleeves and hem of the dress into a scallop-edge.  I used an adhesive pearl design on the body of the dress and adhered a string of pearls along the neckline with rolled up glue dots.

To finish, I tied a thin white ribbon around the dress and added a sliver cross charm.  Looks pretty similar to the original, but I like the coordinating pearls on the neckline and the body of the dress on this one, and since I didn't have any stamps or embossing powder with me, this adhesive pearl design saved me!!!

This original card, posted by "stampandshout" on SplitCoastStampers, can be found here.

Thanks for looking!!!  :)

Your card turned out beautifully, considering you were short on supplies. I may have to scraplift since my godchild is baptizing her first son a week from Sunday. TFS
