Elegant Cross Card for a Christening

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Creative Expressions Floral Stripes Embossing Folder. I added CS Enchanted Gold Gilding Polish to it, matted onto Gold Mirror Card and popped onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I cut die #4 from Sue Wilson's Indonesian Background die set out of Gold Mirror Card and dies #3 and #4 together out of Coconut White Card. I glued the 2 die cuts together using CS Glue in a Woodware Fine Tipe Glue Applicator, dabbing off any excess glue with Kitchen Roll before putting them together.

I cut one of the frames from Sue's Indonesian Mini Frames Die Set - cutting the outer die on it's own once and the 2 dies together once. I glued the 2 die cuts together and added them to my Background Die piece.

I cut one of the crosses from Sue's Elegant Cross Die Set out of Gold Mirror Card and added a Craft Consortium Pearl to the centre.

I cut Sue's Christening Day Die out of Gold Mirror Card and added it to the bottom of my card.

I completed my card by adding a Pearl to each corner.
