Confirmation Card for a Boy

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

What can I say we are nearly at the weekend just one day to go? I have lots to do I expect you all have too.

I was asked to make cards for two young people who will be getting confirmed this coming Sunday. I did get a bit more notice than I usually get for my makes. I have finished the card for the boy so I can share that one with you today.


So what do you do for a boy? I decided to go with bold bright colours and an unfussy design. Of course there had to be a cross with it being a confirmation. I have had the cloud embossing folder for a while but I haven't used it much. The letters for the name were cut with some Tonic dies that I have. The bunting was cut with my Tattered Lace Flower Pot Shelf die. 


The cross was cut from gold mirror card, with a Spellbinders die, and backed with white card so I could raise it on foam pads. 


I will share the girl's card when I manage to get that finished, I have made at least made a start. I have a few outstanding commissions at the moment. I had better get a move on with them or they will be due before I know it. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
