First Holy Communion Card

A special card for a special young lady to congratulate and celebrate her First Holy Communion.

I used my new Silhouette Cameo, and I continue to be impressed at its cutting ability.  I used the “Lizzy, Paper Doll” and using the Silhouette Designer Studio, I was able to change her arm position (from outstretched) to hold a rosary.  I have a lot to learn with the tool, but I am pleased at my first effort.  I also was able to create the skirt portion of her dress, change her hair, and create and cut her eyes and her mouth.  The Cameo cut the tiny flowers for her headpiece without issue and also did a great job on the interior Celtic Cross (also from the Silhouette Online Store).

I used my Spellbinders dies to cut the frame in the front of the card as well as the scalloped pink edge.  The window (Papertrey Ink Clear Cardstock) was stamped with Staz On ink in cotton white.

I hope she’ll like it – she is a terrific young lady – smart, creative, and caring.

EDITED:  The earlier photo did not fully show the “beauty” of stamping on acetate so I took some more photos.  I had read on-line that sometimes acetate is hard to stamp as it “slides”  which makes it difficult to stamp.  So I placed the sheet on my Silhouette mat to hold it in place, stamped with the Staz On ink, and it didn’t slide at all.  It’s not perfect, but I think it is acceptable.

I also decided to submit this card in the CR84FN Color Challenge as the latest 2 week challenge was medium pink, tan, and cream.  This is a fabulous way to challenge yourself with lots of inspiration from a terrific Design Team.  Clicking on the graphic below will take you to the page with all of the details.  A new challenge will be published on Sunday.
