Classy Cards Baptism Blessings

Hi!  I wanted to make a frilly card for a friend's daughter's Baptism and this is what I designed.  I originally just made the card using the Spellbinders Floral Oval die but I decided to back the whole die on white A2 sized card stock so it would be easier to display.

The only opening in this card is the floral oval.  I used an A2 size top-fold card with the Spellbinders Floral Oval die making sure to push the die up a bit higher than the top of the card stock so the top wouldn't be cut all the way.  This way I still had a card with a folded uncut edge and not just a die-cut.  I then cut the Spellbinders Floral Oval a second time out of a single piece of white card stock and glued this piece to the front of the folding oval to mask the fact that the top of the other card was not a complete cut.  

I used the smaller oval in the set to create the top oval which I popped up using Joy! Foam Pads.  I cut the cross from a Spellbinders die (that Beverly can special order from the CCNS Store).  I used the cross as a stencil and colored it with distress ink.  

The inside of the card is stamped with a blessings sentiment and flat-backed white pearls were added to the front for extra interest.  This was a really quick card to create.  

Thanks for stopping by!
