Baptism Card-Making Ideas

Taufbecken image by Christian Deppisch from

A baptism is an important event in the life of a Christian family. While varying denominations view baptism differently, the general idea is that a baptism marks the beginning of an individual's life of faith. It is an outward expression of an inward decision and commitment to follow Jesus Christ.

With just a few craft supplies, you can customise your child's--or your own--baptism announcements to share with family and friends.

Poetic Card

Place a poem or special Bible verse on the front of your Baptism announcement card. If you have good script penmanship or know calligraphy, write the poem or verse yourself. Use the inside of the card for details about the baptism.

Water-Themed Card

To make your own water-themed baptism cards, upload a photo of a lake, river, waterfall or other water image of your preference onto a card-designing website. You'll have to pay get the cards printed and shipped, but you'll be able to produce a fully customised, professional set of cards with text, images, artwork, decorative borders and virtually anything other embellishment that a specialised print shop provides.

Cross Card

Make a card in the shape of a cross for your baptism announcement. Make a template out of an old greeting card, then tracing the template onto a piece of card stock. When cutting out the template, make sure that you don't cut the fold that keeps the cross together. Use script or calligraphy to write "You're invited to..." on the front of the card, followed by the event details on the inside.
