For the first Communion of my two cousins, I wanted to make a card that had a focal image other than a cross. I did a Google search, and after taking bits and pieces of inspiration from different projects, here is what I created:
Supplies (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Autumn Days
Paper: 110-lb Whisper White (Recollections), so Saffron, Delightful Dijon, Smoky Slate, Naturals White card stock
Ink: So Saffron, Delightful Dijon, Smoky Slate
Accessories: 1-3/4" and 1" circle punches, Round Tab punch, Framed Tulips embossing folder, Corner Chomper (We R Memeory Keepers), Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen, sponge, scoring stylus, Mono Multi liquid glue, Dimensionals
I just want to point out that the yellow panels are two different colors; it's not weird lighting or shadows. I didn't want the cards to be exactly the same, so I figured the easiest change was to use different background colors. Otherwise the cards are the same, and for the most part I think they are pretty self-explanatory. One detail that's hard to see is the clear Wink of Stella glitter that I brushed on the raised tulips along the embossed edge to add just a bit of sparkle.
I do have a few close-up photos that show how I made the chalice:
I didn't get a separate photo of it, but to make the host, I punched a 1" circle from Naturals White card stock. I used a scoring stylus to deboss a cross in the white circle and then glued the circle to the back of the chalice.
I attached the chalice to the stamped background with Dimensionals and then used Dimensionals again to attach the panel to the embossed card base. Thanks for stopping by!
