A Christening Card

I was a little lost for ideas on this one as I make cards very rarely. I love the 3D effect on cards, so I decided to fashion a bible using a bit of thick foamboard. I wrapped it in some Easter Egg foil (yes, I am eating eggs already) to creat the look of gold leaf on the edges of the 'pages'. Then I used a bit of old pearlescent card to make the cover, stuck a peel on cross on it. To make the bookmark, I used a tiny piece of ribbon with the ends cut nicely. It still looked plain so some polka dot sticky ribbon down the side, put the words on silver card with blue eyelets and you have a pretty christening card.


  1. Great idea for a card - well done! I love your eyelets, I have really been struggling with mine.

  2. Such a good idea for a christening card - very elegant x

  3. Thanks girls. I will be looking to make the old childs rocking chair I have in the loft look spectacular for this as well.
