Today's card has come about after a request from a friend for a card for a First Communicant so here is the finished card:
The request was for "Clean but with Bling" so I turned to the wonderful Gold Glimmer Card stock for the Chalice and for the cup part used the 21/2" Circle punch and then used some Vellum and Grid paper to come up with a template to trace for the stand which is cut by hand.
For the Host image I punched both Vellum and White card and joined them together with a touch of the 2 Way Glue pen - for whilst it is blue coloured when it is wet, it dries Clear - unlike most other adhesive. And it is then added to the card with a dimensional which is easily hidden by the white card stock :-)
The Sun image from Kinda Eclectic came in very handy as a background here - I inked up the stamp with the Encore Gold ink and then used a punched piece of Post it Note to cover the middle of the stamp (with the same size circle punch as the Host image) before stamping. I do hope she likes it!
