Paper Craft Crew Challenge 387 #PPC387


I saw this sketch and thought hmmmm - my daughter is receiving her First Holy Communion next weekend so I needed to make her a card for it. 

This is what I made.

It is hard to make any type of religious cards but these sets along with the sketch make it that bit easier to come up with something.

I stamped and embossed the cross and fussy cut it out (as there isn't a die for this) The tasteful textile embossing folder adds that touch of texture to the background of the card so it doesn't have too much white space. I think the copper just adds that little bit of elegance to the finished card.

I have kept all my religious stampsets for occasions such as this as they have great sentiment stamps in them.
