Christening Card

My cousin’s little boy was christened on Sunday. I really wanted to make a personalised card for the occasion. Here’s what I came up with:

Christening Card
I liked the idea of having bunting on the card, showing his name and the date of his christening. Using the Avery Elle Bunting die set, I die cut some bunting flags from card which I had coloured with promarkers. I then stamped the flags using the AE Elle’s Alphas stamp set.

For the background, I really wanted to try using the Lil’ Inker Pierced Chevron die again. The first time I used it, I found it very tricky. Glue went everywhere and it was really fiddly. I’ve since got some Stick-It adhesive sheets, which are perfect for those particularly tricky die-cuts. It worked very well and I was much happier with the end result.

I finished the card with a printed sentiment, twine, and some adhesive gems.

Products used to make this card:

  • Lil’ Inker ‘Cover Up Die: Pieced Chevrons’
  • Avery Elle ‘Bunting’ Elle-ments Dies
  • Avery Elle ‘Elle’s Alphas’ stamp set
  • Dovecraft Adhesive Gemstones, Pastel
