First Recollection Card

Hello. My 2nd Grader is reaching a milestone in his religious life this Thursday. He will have his first Confession. As part of the preparation, we were asked to make him an encouragement letter. I created this card for him.

The digital cut images are from the Silhouette Design Store, the Ornate Christian Cross Card and the First Communion Boy Box. After I uploaded the images to the Cricut Design Space, I modified the size of the card to an A2 size. I only used the boy cut on the boy box.

I cut the intricate background three times. I sprayed one of the background cuts and the cross with WPlus9 Shimmer Pure Color Spray. I set this aside to dry. Once the background cut is dry, I adhered this on top of the other background cuts for a stacked look.

The boy digital cut is a layered cut. Using the CDS, I welded the layers to create a solid boy cut to create a backer for the layers. I die cut the layers using different colored cardstock. I had the CDS draw the face using a black marker. I traced this lines with a Black Sakura Glaze pen for dimension. I also used Copic markers to add shadowing to the boy's suit and the hands.

I embossed the left over negative oval cut from the background using a We R Memory Keepers Next Level embossing folder. I adhered this to a light blue 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cardstock. I tucked the boy to the bottom of the window.

For the sentiment, I used the Honey Bee Prayer and Bless Your Heart stamp sets to create a customized sentiment. I stamped this on a banner cut with the Lawn Fawn Fancy Folded Banner die. I stamped this with a light blue dye ink. I adhered this with a transparent dimensional tape on the front of the cross.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
