Baptism Cards!

My sister-in-law asked me to make her a dozen Baptism cards and these are a few examples. I think they turned out adorable! I used my Cricut to cut the little people and the number "8"s. I also stamped an 8 for some of the boys cards from a retired SU! number set. It was so much fun putting them together! I especially liked adding the glitter to the little girls!! I hope she likes them!!
