Baby Boy Baptism

Good morning!!  Happy Friday to you!!  It's a very cool and rainy Friday here, but April showers bring May flowers, right?  I sure hope so!!  I have a very special card to share with you today.  I made this card using the new Ornate Cross from the Easter release at The Scrapping Cottage.

Even though this card is very ornate, it's on the clean and simple side, too.  I made this for my sweet baby grandson, Max, who is being baptized this Sunday.  Just a little splash of blue for my baby boy to celebrate the special day.  I cut two of the crosses and layered them by popping the top cross up with foam dots.  In the center, between the layers, I used the two small crosses included on the die, with one of them done in blue.  This gave it a little pop of blue in the center, which I thought was a nice effect.  The background is embossed with a flourish embossing folder, and a little satin ribbon finished this card off. 

Have a glorious weekend!!

Having seen your beautiful card, I went hunting on the Cottage Cutz site for that lovely cross. I can't find it anywhere! Is it out of stock? Can you direct me to it? Thank you so much!
