First Communion Card

Hello! I have quite a few First Communions coming up, including my own daughters!  She is excited to be taking this next step in her faith.  I decided to make all the cards I need at once.  I will share one with you today and the other two tomorrow (they are very similar so I want to show them both at once).  All three cards are made with Inspired Heart (a Lite cart).

Here is the first card:

This is for a girl who is a little older than the typical 2nd grade time frame that First Communion occurs in.  This card is cut at 4.5".  I cut it three times. Once in the light blue and brown with the cross and pages hidden by using the Hide Contour feature on my Gypsy. I cut it the third time in white, this time only cutting the cross and pages.  I assembled it the way I wanted and added the accents.  I doodled brown around the edges with a marker, added Stickles to the cross, and a ribbon where the page marker cut is.

Instead of welding two background squares on the Gypsy, I just cut the navy cardstock to the size I needed. 

For the inside, I printed this phrase I found online and then trimmed it to fit inside the card. 

I hope you have enjoyed this card and check back tomorrow for the other two!


  1. Well this is lovely... the sentiment goes perfect with your card.... Looking forward to seeing the other 2! :o)

  2. Nice card and love the sentiment. I need to make a card for my grandson's first communion and it is so hard to find ideas. Thanks
