Coffee and a stunning Christening card

Happy Monday I hope you all had an amazing weekend, hope all the mummies in the Uk had a wonderful Mothering Sunday. I had a fab day got some sweet gifts from my little girl who did a mini treasure hun with riddles to lead me to each gift. She's so thoughtful.

I spent the rest of my Sunday planning and creating this beautiful card. Im my mind its a Christening card for a little boy, change the colours up for a girl. It a simple yet elegant card with lots of layers to give depth and also help with layering technique.

I used the Carousel birthday stamps with has a circus fair ground theme adorable. The Embossing folder used is named floral affection, a two piece set I used only one section. The colours I kept minimum Soft Sky and Whisper white. I did bring in my Layering oval dies for the centre piece but you could use an alternative or cut a rectangle by hand. I don't often use more than two things on a Monday card but I had this idea in my head and just had to see it through. I do hope you like it . As usual you can view a full video tutorial on my Youtube below. If you would like to purchase any of the products used just visit my online shop via the link to the right or click the shop now tab. Enjoy the rest of your Monday folks and ... happy stampin, hugs x Amanda
