Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Communion Cross from the new August release. This image comes with 3 sentiments. I’ve used 1 on my card, but you also have the choice of “First Communion” and “On Your First Holy Communion”. This would be great image and sentiment to give to either your child or a friend’s child celebrating this blessed sacrament.
To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I die cut the image and frame using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers dies. I coloured in the the image with Copic markers and then placed Kraftin’ Kimmie – Starburst stencil over top and taped off the area that I wanted to use. Using Copic Y04, I coloured in the darker rays using the stencil as a guide. The tape was carefully removed from the top and sides of the stencil. The tape was placed back down at the top before removing the tape from the bottom of the stencil. After removing the stencil completely, the tape was placed back down on the 2 sides and bottom where the darker rays ended. Using the darker rays as a guide, I coloured in the lighter rays using Copic Y00 marker. All of the tape was removed at this point which left a nice thin white border around it.
Using the same dies again, I die-cut Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold to use for my background.
The card was now ready to assemble. Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. was used to create the card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. The gold background was added directly to the base using double-sided tape. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was added to the back of the image to pop it up and it was placed directly over the gold background.
