May 15, 2011 - First Holy Communion Card

I made this card for my cousin's daughter who had her First Holy Communion this past Saturday May 14. 

I used the following supplies:

Metallic Gold cardstock
Bazzil Cardstock "Emma" (Pale Pink)
White Cardstock
Spellbinders Labels 10 (largest size)
Spellbinders Posy Patch dies (Heartfelt Creations exclusive)
Heartfelt Creations Decorative Vintage Cross stamp
Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch Flowers stamps
Cuttlebug Goochie Script 5x7 Embossing Folder
Stampendous Pirate Gold Embossing powder
Stampin'Up! Pink Pirouette Ink
Stampin'Up! White Ribbon
White half pearls

I cut a card 5x7 from the metallic gold cardstock.  I embossed the pink cardstock with the Goochie Script folder and pasted it to the card base.  I stamped the Vintage Cross twice and embossed both images with the Pirate Gold embossing powder.  I die cut one whole cross with the Spellbinders Label 10 and fussy cut just a portion of the other cross.  I inked around the filigree portion of the die cut cross with Pink Pirouette ink.  I pasted the fussy cut cross to a piece of metallic gold cardstock and cut around the cross, leaving about 1/16 of an edge so the gold cardstock would stand out a bit more around the cross.  I used foam tape to pop the cross off the first embossed image.  I embossed and die cut 3 different sizes of posy flowers.  I inked them with the Pink Pirouette ink and popped them off the cross.  I added the ribbon and half pearls to finish the card.

Hope you like it!

Many Happy Scrappenings!
