Christening Card for Ruby


Morning all, here is the other card I made for Ruby's Christening.  Isn't that such a pretty name. Anyways, this is the card that my friend chose to give to her granddaughter.  I must agree, I really like how this one turned out.  I started with a blank white card then a layer of pink vellum which has hearts drawn all over it and sadly the last little piece.  Next came layers of the new Textured Linen cardstock from Blue Edge Crafts in Pink and White.  I really like the feel of this card and a perfect thickness. I cut four slits into the white card front and threaded this white wire edge ribbon through to form a cross. I added the little charm just to make it that little more girly.  The sentiment is computer generated which I have raised up with 3D foam.

Have a terrific Tuesday everyone. :-)

I would like to share this with:

  14. This is uch a gorgeous Christening card. I love the ribbon cross. How imaginative.
    I fail miserably to make wedding/christening and engagement cards. I don't really know why but I must have a go at making some now that I have seen your lovely card.
    I saw it on the Make it Monday linky party and popped over to take a better look.
