First Communion Card and Gift Bag

Today I have a special card to share for a friend's son who made his First Communion recently. As a family they are all such beautiful people and we have become good friends really easily. Young "Awesome Kid" was really excited about the occasion and it so it was a lovely opportunity to make something just for him :-)

I found this card by Barbara Kapla on Pinterest and have CASED it with a few changes.

I loved the way Barbara used the Gold Foil to create her chalice so I used the retired Vintage Vogue EF and the circle framelits for mine.I added a vellum leaf between the the Gold embossed wooden Celebrate and the gold foil to break it up a little and add some softness. For the host, I cut 3 layers of Vellum over a white circle and stamped the Sunburst from Kinda Eclectic underneath. 

Card stock: Whisper White ( normal and Thick), Gold Foil, Vellum
Ink: Gold Encore (retired)
Stamps: Kinda Eclectic
Accessories: Big Shot, Circle Framelits, Vintage Vogue EF, Little Leaves Sizlit (retired), Expressions Natural Elements, Gold EP

To carry the little gift and the card as well I used the Gift Bag Punch Board and a fantastic tutorial from the lovely Nikki Spencer and I used the Thick White Card for this because it needed a little extra strength :-)

And here's a closer look at the draping tag :-)

Card stock: Whisper White (Thick),
