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!
