Baptism card

I have made eight of these cards, as this Sunday eight members of our congregation are being baptised. It is a first for our church to have so many baptised in one go. What a wonderful reason to batch card make!

The writing was computer generated and the other elements were cut with my Craft Robo, then the top cross embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. The crosses are raised up with some pinflair glue to give a bit of dimension. The water paper is from an ancient, enormous variety pack from DCWV.
If you are ever looking for verses to go in to Christian cards, I found this wonderful site, Heavens Inspirations,  and used the following verse inside these cards.

I pray you'd have a real sense
Of God's hand upon your life
As you go through the baptismal waters
And follow after Christ
I pray that you may go from here
Changed and made brand-new
Walking hand in hand with God
Into all He's called you to.
