An Invitation for a Christening with a Card Giraffe and Letter Beads
Make your own christening invitations with a card giraffe, a bow on a metal paper clip and letter beads.
How to do it
Cut a piece of metallic card (slightly bigger than the vellum paper) and a piece of vellum paper for attaching onto the front of the greeting card.
Attach the metallic card onto the front of the greeting card with double-sided adhesive tape. Cut out the giraffe template available as a separate PDF file on this page and place it underneath the vellum paper (mirrored). Attach double-sided adhesive tape onto the vellum paper so that it is not visible when attaching the giraffe later. Remove the protective paper from the double-sided adhesive tape, and attach it onto the metallic card.
Place the giraffe template onto a piece of card, outline and cut out.
Make a small hole with a needle in the middle fold of the greeting card. Push the wire through the hole, thread letter beads onto the wire and tie it on the back.
Attach the metal paper clip with a bow onto the giraffe . Attach the giraffe onto the front of the greeting card with 3D foam pads, making sure that it covers the double-sided adhesive tape on the vellum paper.
