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.
After the paper is ripped off I put on White Gesso and Frantage – Shabby White.
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.
The names of the people invited are written on my computer and printed out on the pattern paper: 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 alnut 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 the Vintage Spring Basics Collection. I have chosen all the blue ones.
The butterflies are 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.
I hope you got inspired!
Big hugs from
