First Communion

Hello and welcome to a wet and miserably cold day! I am so glad it is only one month until Spring will be here :-)
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!



Card stock: Pool Party, Whisper White, 
Specialty Card stock: Gold Glimmer, Vellum
Ink: Encore Gold
Stamps: Kinda Eclectic
Accessories; 21/2" and 13/4" Circle punches, Gold Twine, Basic pearls

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Happy stamping until next time,

Jan
