Mi Bautismo



FINALLYYYYY!!!

After so much waiting, I can show you the *Christening* invitation/keepsake that I've been talking about for quite a while now and that felt (at least to me) that it took like a hundred years to complete...LOL!

The thing is that I had to make 20 of these...

and since I work full-time (yeah, real life sucks sometimes...LOL!)...

and then have assignments as a DT from the different groups that I'm in...

I had to work on them in my spare time, which is practically *none* :-s

Anyway, today I can finally say that *I'm done with these* and that I'm *super proud* of how they turned out, considering that I had to work with a certain amount of supplies in order to stick to a budget :-s

But enough babbling... here's the finished product:


It's a *criss-cross* card. And since one of it's main purposes was to use it as an invitation, I created a tag that when you pull it out...



...it reveals the event's info ;-)

Now, the other thing was that people could use it as a keepsake too, so I made the pull-out tab from the card's inside so that it reveals the baby's pic and name...



and then people can use it as a hanging decoration.

In case you were wondering...  yes, the pic was taken on purpose so she could resemble Baby Tilda :-)



Oh and on a side note, this baby was the same one who received -->this<-- handmade gift from me ;-)

Like I said, I'm so proud of this cutie... and of course, the mom was thrilled, which pleases me even more :-)

So please, let me know what you think too ok?

Have a great day!

OMG.. WOW..So beautiful .. my favorite colors:) I love it. I know the feeling of too little time to do anything. But the insanely gorgeous. Have a nice day for you. Now my baby is asleep and the two are away from home. So I go to see what fun I discovered, alone in my hobby room.
