In Denmark May is the big months for Confirmations. That means happy teens, garden parties, church and togetherness 🙂 (Is that a word?). It’s a big deal!
My own cousin had his Confirmation May 12 – I cannot believe he is already so big. He was my favourite little buddy when he was a kid. Of course I had to create some cards for him! Both from our family and his parents requested a card for him and his friend.
Let’s get to it 🙂
For my first card I went with a Galaxy/adventure theme. I have been on a big Galaxy spree since Rosali visited and we experimented with creating different Galaxy backgrounds with different mediums. SUPER fun!
I was inspired by a card I saw on Instagram by @Irishandcraft to combine the You Make Me Fly balloon with this cute little astronaut. And it was the perfect match for my Galaxy craze 🙂 For the text I heat embossed text from Favoritsæt (danish text stamp) in white.
This is the card I made for my cousin from his parents. It is a big card – European A5. I never make cards this big, but it was a super fun challenge and I love how it turned out.
I did the sunburst background in green Distress Inks inspired by Laura Bassen and Rosali. I used four different colours, and alternated so it fitted with the 12 rooms I randomly sketched with a ruler.
For the green “sun” I used one of my favourite and most used stamps – Colourful Triangle Vibe. The text is from Konfirmand, which is the Danish Confirmation stampset I created for this season. It is sold out for now though 🙂
My last card is a combination of the first two. The balloons from You Make Me Fly and Konfirmand stampsets are the main focal point. The church is included in stampset. This card is also a big one in European A5 size.
I love making those Distress Ink clouds, but it takes me a few tries every time. So I have some extras that need some cover-up action 🙂 I rarely throw things out, because I am a big believer in the power of recycling.
I hope you are enjoying your monday and May 🙂
I will be leaving for New York thursday morning and I am SO excited!
Tomorrow another fun Spotlight will go live ! This one is super fun and contains one of our most popular stampsets.
