Christening dress

Good morning all, I hope you are having a good week and a good start to October.

Today's card is one I made for Jude's youngest Granddaughter Charlotte for her Christening last month. I wanted a card with a Christening dress on, but didn't have a die or stamp so I made one myself.

I used a paper doily for the skirt and folded it until I had the shape I wanted. Then I used a small rectangular piece of white card and used a circle punch to chop out the neck hole and to make the underarm section.

Then I tidied it up with scissors and a corner rounder for the arms. I put it all together with a small pink bow and then decorated it with tiny pearls.

I then used a pearl trim on the bottom of the skirt, around the neck and down the side of the card, after putting it on a pink paper background.

As we don't have stamps for Christenings or Baptism's, I wrote the sentiment on the PC and then printed it onto Safmat. (A clear sticky film which you can print on).

Hope you like it, have a great week and I'll see you Thursday.
