Sasha's First Communion Card

I am sew far behind in blogging - I've made many amazing cards to share and since I came to the cabin for the weekend, thought I would share some of these cards with you . . . .

Sasha made her First Communion in April but this Grammy was in the hospital with an exacerbation of my Myasthenia Gravis for a week - a lot of complications occurred along with a set-back but all is well at this time.

I'm not Catholic and had some problems trying to decide and make an appropriate card and this is what I came up with:

  • card was cut 4.25 x 9 inches using purple Recollection card stock which was then folded in half using Martha Stewart Score Board (what would I ever do without that in my life???)
  • background is a piece of lilac rose paper which was found in my stash and cut 4 x 5.25 inches 
  • cross is a wonderful stand-by which I got as a freebie from My Scrap Chick - it was cut in layers using various textured and designed white card stock and puff-dotted on the front of my card
  • sentiment, God Bless Your First Communion was a freebie from Create with TLC which was chalked around the edges and mounted on scraps of white and silver print card stock
  • white pearls were added to the front of the cross
Hoping this was appropriate . . . .

I thank you for stopping by and visiting today. I appreciate and love reading your comments . . is your comment the next one I read??? 

Much love, hugs, and friendship
