Ten years ago, I became an aunt when my nephew Timothy was born. I was beyond thrilled to become Aunt Cindy. Seven years ago, I married Steve and instantly gained two more nephews, Ian and Sean. Nearly five years ago, I became a mom when Trevor was born. On Sunday, I became a godmother to two girls, Kylinn and Ellia. It is an honor and a privilege to be mom, aunt or godmother to these six.
Here I am with my two new goddaughters, their mom Courteney, and my co-godparent Rachel:
Me, Ellia, Courteney, Kylinn and Rachel
I wanted to make special cards to mark the baptisms of Kylinn, Ellia and Courteney. I hadn't done heat embossing in years, but I knew it would be perfect for mimicking the look of stained glass. The stamp is by Stampin' Up.
I used Prismacolor Premier art markers to color in the stained glass. I love the way the colors blend.
After I colored the windows, I cut them out. I added embossed vellum to a card blank and adhered the window to it. Finally, I tied on a piece of white nylon netting. Here are the finished cards:
And a close-up of one:
I know I will love being a godmother as much as I love being an aunt and a mom. Thank you to Courteney and Carl for honoring me with such an important role in their daughters' lives. I feel truly blessed.
