Celebrate

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. We popped up to see our daughter and her fiance about wedding invitations yesterday and today they are off to their venue for a food tasting. So wedding plans are moving along.

Today something exciting is happening the present leader and his wife is handing over to a new leader and his wife. We have got to know the new leaders quite well and I made them a card to celebrate this change. It will be a big difference  for church but a good one. The service for the handover will take place this morning.


I based this card on one I made for an ordination a while ago. I used Distress Ink on embossing to highlight the detail. I used the ivy die cuts to break up some of the lines. 


I made with with a die that I won at the Pixie's Snippets Playground a few weeks ago. The die is from IO (Impression Obsession) it is called Birthday Top Edgers there are two other dies in the set. 

 

I cut the Spellbinders cross die in gold and offset it with a brown one to give a shadow. 


We popped the card through their door yesterday I hope they like it. I it was actually harder writing the message than making the card I needed my husband did help me. Enjoy the rest of the weekend, We are planning a quiet day after church my husband has a bit of a cold. 

Happy Crafting
