I was asked to design & make the invitations & Order of Service for a Baptism, the child is 5, therefore the design required was to be that little bit older than the norm, and he was included in deciding what he would like on the cards. He likes pirates, dinosaurs and anything nautical, I thought nautical would be ideal for a Baptism, so I set about making them.
The boat was cut using the New Arrival cart for the Cricut machine, the red in shadow & the blue in norm. I stuck the boat part together & popped the sails to add depth, the clouds were also cut using this cart & I used fluffy stuff which you heat emboss, I did this on all 60 clouds that I cut!!!! The background I used shimmer blue chalk blended onto the card.
The waves were cut on Zooballoo cart & French Blue chalk ink used on edges. The lettering on the invite was using the George, YES I stuck each letter myself on all 30 cards!!!
The cut of the invite card is using a swing card cut technique, a bit tricky but easy once you get used to. On the back behind the boat part is the details of the venue.
The order of service, is the same boat & waves, but on a larger scale, I printed the text in the same font as the venue details on the back of the invitation.
