In God's Eyes, You SHINE! Baptismal Bday Cards

Happy almost Friday, my fellow crafters!

I must say I am a much happier camper on Thursday and Friday when the weekend is in sight - especially with how busy work has been. I did manage to create the cards I've had in my head and in my Gypsy last night, though, and I'm so excited that they turned out the way I imagined them:

  • Two Forever Young hand mirrors welded together on my Gypsy and cut at 7 inches in height to form card base
  • Pewter mirror cardstock from JoAnn's individual cardstock sheet racks
  • Purple and bright pink cardstock from Butterfly Wings Recollections pack sold at Michael's
  • White Georgia-Pacific cardstock from Walmart
  • Darice sticky cross and round gems from JoAnn
  •  "You Shine" Sentiment from Scrappy Moms' Sweet Somethings Stamp Set (embossed with black Versamark ink and Ranger clear embossing powder)
  • 2 Peas Champagne Font for "In God's eyes," and inside wording
  • Scrappy Mom's Lilac and Pink Sorbet Baker's Twine 
  • Fiskars scalloped scissors for the tag
I'm pretty happy with how these turned out. My girls and even my husband commented on how great they looked - Wow! I'll be sending these off next week with ice cream gift cards for my Goddaughters' upcoming baptismal birthdays. Yes! Another  couple of cards off my list! :)

I linked this project up to You Had Me At Craft's Made It Myself Monday Linking Party:

Come link up, too, and join the fun!

Have a great weekend all! Hopefully I'll be crafting some more during it.
