Zac's Baptism card

I LOVE how this card came out! It's perfectly BOY without being all cutesy, plus I am in love with the felt banner. :)

The outer layer of the pennants are felt, and I used a needle to actually thread the pennants onto the string. This was my first time doing that, and it was really easy and came out looking really nice.

I love how a name banner is so personal - it lets the recipient know that you truly made that card specifically for him!

And, of course, you can't forget the matching lined envelope - just another extra special touch. :)
