I made this card for a friend who had just been asked to be a godfather to a little baby girl. :) Awww.
I told him that 'confirmed bachelors' often get asked to be godfathers, as it gives them someone to leave their 'misers' fortune to, instead of spending it all on Dr Who figures! ;) lol (He will kill me if he reads this!)
Now I wasnt really sure about Christening cards, but I got heaps of really useful advice from my teamies at I ♥ Promarkers, and white on white seemed a popular choice. The card is slightly softer looking in RL as the mirri board looked black until I brightened the picture a little.
I hand stitched and beaded the lace border. I made the flowers using Marianne Dies and pearl paper, and also used spellbinders dies and card candi for lots of dimension.
