Do you make cards milosmum? Angels are always nice IMO but I don't know if you think that's suitable for a christening card. You can make it look religious though.

yes, i make them but i want to do the card for my niece rather than her mum because of her age, so i dont want it looking too religious but then again not too trendy- alot to ask, i know

I love doing 3D decoupage with stamps. Have you tried it? You do 3 stamps using a fairly elaborate stamp, leave one whole then cut the next one slightly smaller then the next one smaller and build it up as usual. You could find a lovely angel one

Hi Milosmum, I helped a friend make christening invites last year for her 2 daughters, I used an art package to make a black and white sketched picture of a photo of the 2 girls. This was simply stuck on a plain card - little girls like to see photos of themselves, have you got a good one that you could incorporate into an appropriate background, or turn to sepia tone on the computer?

Theres a company called Caring Angel, who do christening gifts, they have some nice cards, with angel pin badges on them, might be good for an older christening, try this link link

this link to another store might be a bit better!
