First Communion Invites

Its so hard to capture the beauty of this card in a photo.  I cased this from Debbie Olson’s Easter Blessing’s card- which to no surprise has been “removed for publication”.  Hers was absolutely fabulous & stunning.  It was all white with gold embossing.  My son decided (and a few others I asked for feedback) that he wanted color.  So we went with So saffron for the base.  Inside the communion announcement was printed from the computer on white, trimmed and adhered to show a border similar to the front.  No ribbon.  

 This card uses Papertreyink’s Every Day Blessings stamp set.  Gold Brilliance ink was used on the solid cross.  Then I stamped the outline cross directly over with versamark and then embossed it with gold ink.  My son liked the 2-tone effect which differed from Debbie’s original card of a single gold embossed cross from the same set.

    This is so wonderful and elegant. My dad asked me to make him some first communion cards and I have a very limited (1) supply of materials to use. I love this!
