Gold Baptismal Card

Welcome

Just a short post today, and only one photo!!
I made this for a woman who was baptised in our church recently.


The card base was white, and I sponged the edges with Delicata Gold ink
The next layer was textured using a CTMH 3-D embossing folder
The ribbon was a sheer white with gold on the edges
The cross was gold embossed, and painted with Gold Paint, and mounted with a layer of thin cardboard under it, and on foam dots, to give some dimension.
The sentiment was computer generated and gold embossed on vellum, and adhered using a scotch tape  especially for vellum.
