Here’s a quick little tutorial for a card I made for a friend’s sons Baptism last week. It was my first Instagram tutorial.
I love this colour combination. Orange and navy blue were used on Luke’s Baptism invitation – as it turned out it was carried right through, coordinating chocolate favours given at church, the balloons, centre pieces and party favours.
1. Inspiration from the invitation.
2. I used my Cuttle bug die to cut felt elephants. You could use any shape and even cut the shapes by hand. The materials needed are coordinating embroidery floss, orange cord and miniature pegs. You’ll also need small hole punch, cardsotck and double sided tape.
3. Mark the letters on the felt pieces [E]. Embroider the letters in contrasting floss using back-stitch [U, K]. These little elephants measure 2.5cm [1in], and the head is as big as the body 😉 so a simple stitch was required.
4. Fold card cardstock in half. Punch 4 holes in top left and right hand corners of card front. Thread cord through both holes and secure with a knot. Repeat with the other end. Place small piece of double sided tape on back of peg.
Clip peg and felt piece on the cord. Clip all, space and position. Peel off tape and secure pegs to card.
I made it so the bunting-like embellishment could be removed and hung elsewhere if desired.
Couldn’t resist these party favour’s are so cute – even adults made sure they took their’s home. Apologies, my son has already made a dent in the contents.
How lovely – what a great friend you are to go to so much trouble!
When you enjoy creating it’s no trouble 🙂
