I Shore Love You! Baptismal Birthday Card

I am blessed to have 5 godchildren, and I take that position very seriously!  :) If you've been following my blog for a while, you'll see that I give treats/gifts to my godkids for 6 different occasions: Valentine's Day, Easter, Halloween, Christmas, Birthday and Baptismal Birthday. This is to let them know that I am thinking of them and praying for them - my most important duty as a Godmother.

For baptismal birthdays, I make a card for them and give an ice cream gift card inside of it. My Godson, Nicholas' special day is next week, so I made this card for him:

  • Cricut Create A Critter cartridge for whale, starfish and shell
  • Stampin' Up Marina Mist cardstock for card base, scraps for remaining pieces
  • Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls embossing folder for the "water"
  • Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder for whale front
  • "I Shore love you"" sentiment from Scrappy Moms' Sun Kissed stamp set
  • Versa Ink black ink pad
  • Ranger clear embossing powder and Marvy Uchida embossing gun
  • Inspiration from Scrappy Mel's blog - Thank you, Mel!
  • Ranger Liquid Pearl White Opal dimensional pearlescent paint for shell
  • Waterfall Stickles for water out of spout
  • Stampin' Up black marker for doodling on starfish
  • Fiskars wavy scissors (for front and tag)
  • Natural twine
  • Foam adhesive dots for whale and starfish
  • 2Peas Sitcom font for tag and inside wording
  • Uni-ball Signo white gel pen
Phew!! What a list! Hopefully I'm not forgetting anything.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
  1. Birthday Sundaes Challenge # 19 - Inspiration Photo (see it below -yum!)
  2. My Craft Spot Challenge # 18 - Emboss It!

One last tidbit: Birthday Sundaes challenge blog is having a blog hop on Sunday, July 31st! Hop on over and join the fun! I know I will be! I really enjoy their design team's work. :)

Well that's all for now. I still need to photograph and upload the cute projects my daughters made at their craft camp last week. Maybe I can get that in tomorrow. Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by my happy place! :)
