Christening card

Gosh it seems like ages since I last posted. My intention of posting every other day seems to have fallen by the wayside already! I'm taking part in Handmade Monday over at this week. First time for me so quite excited about it!

I've been really busy finishing a commission for a golden wedding scrapbook, so have not been able to make  anything new for a while. However, I finished it today and started making some cards but they are not finished yet.

So today I thought I would share a christening card I made a while ago now. This card was commissioned and I have to say the lady that asked for it to be made had no idea what I was going to do. She left it completely up to me. All she asked for was a christening card for a girl. So this is what I came up with. A christening card shaped as a christening gown.

This is a close up of the ribbon and bow around the middle. You can see that I attached a metal cross charm. 
 This is the card fully open.

I hope you like it as much as my customer did.
