Christening Cards



I don't know if you remember, way back in May, I was having a nervous breakdown because a set of Christening cards I had been asked to make for Papercraft Inspirations magazine had got lost in the mail. There was a tight deadline before they were due in the photography studio of the magazine, so I had to redo them in a midnight oil burning session. Well, they got there, they were published and I can share them with you now after all this time. They were for the Quick cards section of the magazine, so quite simple.........

For this first one, I coloured white chipboard letters in pastel colours. The baby is from the Sundae of Seasons CD by Polkadoodles


This next one uses a Lili of the Valley image, and is a simple easel card - the front of the card was folded in half, and the image just popped on so that it stood clear of the fold line


This next one was my favourite, probably because I drew the template for the church myself, and I thought I was being clever using a cut down letter T sticker for the Cross. the sentiment was stamped onto card candi from Craftwork Cards


I have been having a trawl through my picture folders, and have found all sorts of stuff I haven't shared with you so there will be a respite from Christmas cards for a few days

We are in for a cold (well, cool) spell here in Florida, year-round residents are delighted and looking forward to it. Me? I would be happy for it to stay just as it is until Christmas, but I will just have to be gracious and allow them all a day or two of chill, but after that there will be a stern chat with the head weather man about sunshine and iced coffee.....

See you tomorrow x

Beautiful cards, one and all, but I have to tell you that I'm totally in love with the second one. Love the image and the soft colours you used. It's so dainty - perfect for the Christening of a baby girl!
