Christening Card

Afternoon bloggers!  Bit brighter here today which made it slightly easier to photograph a card for a christening that I made this morning.  Don't get much call for these so was a bit stumped, so after much deliberation I decided to go with simple and elegant!

The gorgeous blue satin ribbon was a find from a local charity shop and it is really really soft and sumptious.

Background paper is from the ever trusty Anna Griffin, one of her earlier ranges, not sure if they still produce this print.

I found some die cut bibs in my stash, very handy :o)  Embossed some heavy white cardstock with the Cuttlebug Polka Dot folder.  I use a Quickutz Revolution die cutting machine which isn't very wide and I think it may be ruining my embossing folders.  Have been looking at the Sizzix Big Shots for ages now and they have come down in a price a bit since release.

My sentiments are mostly produced on my PC, but recently have been frustrated at the quality of the printed ink, prone to smudging etc.  I thought it was down to the ink but then a kind person explained to me that I just needed to change my paper to photo paper.  Which I did and I have to say it's brilliant, perfect printing and it's a heavier weight with a slight sheen.  Much more professional looking.

I'm doing a thank you card next which I'll blog about tomorrow.  Thanks for popping by.
