Our family will be celebrating our grandson’s First Communion in April. I wanted to get his card finished early since I still have to make his banner for church and his rosary. I will share both of those projects as they are completed, but in the meantime, here is the card I made for him.
I must admit I was concerned going into this project about what I would do for this card. Carson’s favorite color is yellow so I wanted to use that color for sure. Once I figured out the other colors to compliment the yellow, the design was the next obstacle. I rented the Raisin Boat First Communion stamp set specifically for this card, so naturally that was the starting off spot. I auditioned different configurations until I came up with this. There are actually 3 ribbons that are layered behind the focal matte. The bottom layer is a sparkly silver ribbon which I liked but felt it needed to be toned down just a bit. The next layer of sheer silver organza ribbon did the trick but I felt it needed something more so I added the thin line of silver cord and adhered all of the layers down. The matte is popped using dimensionals from Scrapbook Adhesives. It took 4 tries to get the sentiment and chalice to emboss nicely, but the extra effort was well worth it since I think it turned out perfect.
