First Holy Communion
I had to wait till today to post this, as the girl it is made for is the daughter of a couple we work with, and they were returning to Poland last night, ready for their daughters First Holy Communion next Sunday.
I stuck to a completely white on white theme, using two shades of pearl white card, one for the base card & embossed panels, and one for the matting layer between them. The matting layer was cut slightly smaller than the base card, and the two embossed panels were trimmed down to also leave a border on the panel.These were stuck to the matting layer with DST and I made the embossed pieces roughly 2/3 and 1/3- it seemed to give a better balance than half & half. The join was covered with a wide layer of white organza ribbon, topped with a band of narrower silky ribbon, then topped with a bow from the organza ribbon.
This whole panel was added to the front of the card with DST again, then I positioned the cross using blobs of silicone glue, which gave a little dimension, as well as gripping the glittered surface well.
After the cross had stuck properly, I added the flatback pearls on all the visible 'dots' of the folder design.
The sentiment panel is using Nesties Labels 4, large & small. The words are computer printed onto some white gloss embossing paper I bought a long time ago, and am coming to the end of. I've never been able to get it again, which is a shame. It means you can print onto it via a computer & printer, then heat emboss it.
I added a few white flowers, just constructed by using assorted small flower punches.
This is the detail from a card I posted a while ago, and shows how the Medallion Cross can look layered up.This one was stamped In Pearlescent Brilliance inks, onto Pearl card.
A slight change to how I post today, I think. Instead of adding links to what I've used throughout the post, I thought I'd try doing a list, with links at the end. So here goes:
Creative Expressions, Large Kildare Cross.
PDA Card & Paper,White Pearl Card.
Flatback Pearls ( this lady has masses of colours & sizes, as well as acrylic gemstones.)
Quickutz Diamond Dots folder ( I can only find it on Amazon .com)
