Hi everyone!

This is a scheduled post so no weather update from me! LOL

I was asked to make 3 cards for a Christening, for 2 sisters & their brother. The children ages are from 5, 7 & 9  (if I remember correctly!) & after chatting to the lovely lady about what type of cards she wanted, we came up with this idea!

My Method:
I made 3 individual 4 x 4 cards & matching boxes in  blue, pink & purple Centura Pearl card, I die cute 6 toppers -2 square & 4 scalloped, then added silver crosses to each one. I then die cut the names of each child and the date of the Christening and added them to the Card base topper.  I then added a blue brad to the cross on the blue card.

4 x 4 card base & boxes - Centura Pearl
Toppers - (using just square & scalloped die from set) - Nellie's Scalloped Squares 
Scalloped die -  Lea'bilities multi die 
Silver crosses die cuts - Spellbinders
Alphabet die - Joy crafts

I'm very happy to say the recipients loved their little Christening boxes!

Until next time,
