Xavier's Baptism Card

Here's what I came up with for Xavier's Baptism (which is today so I better hurry up and get this post done so we can go to church!)

So photography-wise I am a complete novice, have no idea what I'm doing but am keen to learn.
My new camera (Canon G11) is more than a point and shoot but not a digital SLR. Its kind of in-between because it has some manual functions and great zoom etc. I do plan on going to a beginners class to learn about all the functions. Hubby has a great Digital SLR too so I will be able to better utilise its functions.

The first photo here was taken on Automatic, just point and shoot.

This second photo was taken on Manual with me choosing the aperture and ISO (I am still learning what those even mean!)

This last one was taken at close range on Automatic and the camera automatically chose to use its Macro function for me. Sweet!

I know I still have lots to learn about lighting and other things but I think these came out ok considering I have not even read the manual yet! LOL!

Now onto the details of the card:


The cross I used is a non-Stampin' Up stamp set - OMG!! I don't own a Stampin Up cross so I used this one instead. (My back up plan would have been to create a cross out of a small love heart stamp if I could not find the acrylic block for this stamp!)

The sentiment is from "Occasional Greetings" and I thought it appropriate for a Baptism.


I used Bashful Blue, overlayed with Silver Encore for the crosses and then Silver Encore for the sentiment.


Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Brushed Silver


Eyelet Border Punch
