Hi there! For the baptism of little Maximilian I made the place cards out of plaster. I will now show you how I decorated them. I bought the plaster and the heart shaped plaster molds at Panduro Hobby.
The first I did was to glue on some gothic papers from an old book. I let it stay on a bit, then I ripped it off, so that the letters on the back side stayed on the heart.
I brushed on some Glue n' seal.
Then put the paper on.
I have used the White Gesso as glue for the frantage.
And melted the powder with my Heat Gun.
I have also put on some spots with Crackle Paint - Picket Fence, so that the heart gets the old rustic look.
Here are some of them.
The names of the people invited are written on my computer and printed out on the pattern paper from Maja Design: 6st of March from the Vintage Spring Basics Collection.
I glued on some flowers (Frost Frappe-Prima, and Cherry Blossom-WOC). The glue I use is called Tacky Glue.
I cut out the names, and ink all the edges with Walnut Stain - Distress Ink pad.
I also bend the paperstrip with a brush.
Glue it on the heart, and add some Crackle Paint-Rock Candy.
I have cut out the butterflies from the paper called 6st of May, also from Maja Design and the Vintage Spring Basics Collection. I have chosen all the blue ones.
The butterflies are also glued on with Tacky Glue. And I have also added some Stickles - Star Dust on the wings.
Here they are finished. Under I will show you some close ups of several of the place cards.
These tip are also to be found in the Maja Design blog today.
I hope you got inspired! Big hugs xx
