A Christening Card

The bridal shop owner suggested I make a christening card, since she sells a few christening gowns.  This is the one I delivered back in January.  It hasn't sold yet, but the shop is just getting into a busier season now, so we'll see.


Used lots of white (of course), with just a hint of gray in the cross (Verve Notes Of Prayer), and a signature pearl.


I tied in the religious theme with a fleur de lis embossing folder, and the Parisian Motif round die-cut has a similar element along its edges.

When I attended my niece's christening several years ago, I was really struck by the priest's stole.  It was so beautiful, with lots of gold, blue and fleurs de lis.  It so inspired me, I made a card based on it.  You can see it HERE.

ETA:  I'm entering this at Verve's April Diva Dare:  the theme is Little Things...make a card for a child or baby.

Thanks for your visit today!  Be well.  :-)

So pretty, Colleen! I'm making similar but much simpler cards for daughter to give the confirmation class at her church! Not nearly as elegant as this!
