Two Baptism Cards

Our grandson, Wyatt, and his cousin, Noah, were baptized this morning. (Their moms are sisters.) These are the cards I made for them - yesterday.

I used the same stamps for both cards. They are from a Stampin' Up! set called Special Blessings. (It's the same set I used for Wyatt's brother, Owen, three years ago.) For Wyatt's card, above, I used Versamark and pewter embossing powder for all of the stamping. I cut out the dove and mounted him on foam squares. I cut the circles with Spellbinders dies and mounted them on foam squares, too. The matted part of the sentiment is also on foam squares. I embossed the background with a Cuttlebug folder. The matting is a thicker pewter cardstock.
This is the card I made for Noah. I stamped the dove with Soft Sky, embossed, cut out and mounted on foam squares. I stamped the sentiment with black and matted that layer with Soft Sky cardstock. Tomorrow I'll post the baby card I belatedly made for Noah.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

These are both beautiful, Lynette! Congrats to both boys on their baptisms! What fun, to have cousins so close in age!

Oh, my! These are both so pretty, Lynette! I love the pattern in the bird. This is the kind of bird I like -- no trying to figure out how to color it. Reminds me I've got a new bird set. . . So many stamps!

I love the fresh clean and beautiful Baptism cards that you made. This is such a special time for the little baby boys and all of your family. Thanks for sharing all that you do Lynette.

Great Baptism cards! I need to be thinking about making some First Communion cards.
