Congratulations on Your First Communion

Congratulations on Your First Communion

At this time of year, our young people prepare to receive their First Holy Communion at the church of their choice.  Because our Grandson was one of these young people this year, I made this special card for him.  Unfortunately, this stamp set is no longer available for purchase from Stampin’ Up! but my cousin has it and was more than willing to share it with me!!

By using Gold Embossing Powder with the Heat Tool and Silver Foil Cardstock I was able to add some special shine to the card.

Congratulations on your new home!

Congratulations on your new home!

Congratulations on your new home!  I hope you have many happy years enjoying the amazing place you now call your home!  It’s nice to have so many different opportunities to send cards to friends – I’m happy that I have the Delightful Day stamp set in my craft room!

Here are the dimensions and instructions:

– Cut Basic Black Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
– Cut Magnolia Lane DSP at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the card base.
– Cut Basic Black Cardstock at 4″ x 1″.  Use Embossing Buddy over the entire area to eliminate static when embossing powder is applied.
– Use Versamark ink to stamp greeting.  Sprinkle with White Embossing Powder.  Melt with the Heat Tool.
Tip:  Hold cardstock in an alligator clip when using the Heat Tool so you don’t have “hot” fingers!
– Use Snail Adhesive to attach greeting strip over the DSP.

Here are the products used:

Here is another sample using the same DSP (just the other side!) and a different greeting from the Label Me Pretty stamp set:

– Cut Basic Black Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
– Cut Magnolia Lane DSP at 5-1/4″ x 4″. Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the card base.
– Cut Basic Black Cardstock at 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″. Use Embossing Buddy over the entire area to eliminate static when embossing powder is applied.
– Use Versamark ink to stamp greeting. Sprinkle with White Embossing Powder. Melt with the Heat Tool.
Tip: Hold cardstock in an alligator clip when using the Heat Tool so you don’t have “hot” fingers!
– Use Pretty Label Punch to punch out the greeting.
– Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the greeting over the DSP.

Now have a look at another sample with a greeting from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set – I love the variety of the DSP and greetings:
