First Holy Communion

 Today I have a Communion card I made for my Godson to share with you.   He made his First Holy Communion a couple weeks ago and I was so glad to see that DRS Designs had the perfect stamps so I could make him a card.  I'd much rather make the cards I give away then buy them.  It's a lot more fun that way too!

The first step I did in making this card was heat emboss the Praying Boy Silhouette (899F) with black embossing powder on light blue cardstock.  I matted it with a white cardstock scalloped oval to use as the focal point on my card front.  I stamped the First Holy Communion Greeting (913G) with black ink on white cardstock and inked the edges around it with light blue ink.  I created the card front from black cardstock that I dry embossed to add a little texture to my card.  I assembled the stamped pieces as shown and used the notched corner punch on all 4 corners.  I added a light blue ribbon and 3 light blue brads as embellishments and then threaded metallic silver string through the notched corners. The entire card front was then adhered to an A2 sized light blue cardstock base.  

I decorated the inside similar to the card front.  On white cardstock I used the notched corner punch on all 4 corners, inked the edges with light blue and I also added a strip of light blue ribbon near the bottom.  I stamped the Communion Greeting (401F) for the inside message.  
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
