Christening Cards

My daughter needed a pair of Christening Cards for a 2.5 year old girl (Isla-Rose) and her 5 year old brother (Connor), both being christened this weekend. A quick search on Pinterest and Google leads me to believe that christenings typically take place when the child is still wearing baby booties, so I had to use my noggin. I decided the cards would be for the kids instead of the parents, and made interactive shaker cards that someone that age would enjoy.

I wanted these personalized so I colour-printed onto ink jet acetate the name and date. The cross stamp is a bargain bin stamp from Michaels that I clear embossed. The pennants were cut on my Silhouette Cameo.
While pretty much the same, I did try to coordinate the beads and sequins in each with the colour scheme.
The acetate seemed to create a shadow in the white card stock beneath so it was tough to get a good photo of these. The base is actually plain. Both have the date on there, too. I hope they liked them!
