First Holy Communion Card Using Varied Vases

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 

Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the project and will take a look at the video tutorial as well. My cards today are two very special cards for a very special occasion. Two of my Great Nephews took their First Holy Communion a few weeks ago and I got the chance to make the card that has been in my head ever since I saw the stamp set Varied Vases at On Stage in April 2018. I saw the fancy vase and saw a chalice and knew I wanted to make a Holy Communion card or a Confirmation card with it and it took until now for the occasion to happen! 

Measurements and Materials

  • The card base is made using Thick Very Vanilla
    • Half a standard sheet 
    • 8 1/4" x 5 7/8"
    • Scored in half and folded
  • The mat is made from Very Vanilla that I ran through my printer to get the boys names on and the date of the ceremony
  • The topper is cut using the second smallest stitched rectangle from the card size ones
  • The gold foil mat is 1 1/2" x 2 7/8"
  • The vase was stamped and heat embossed using the gold embossing powder
  • I really think this vase makes an excellent chalice
  • The host was made using the circle stamp from Water front
  • I stamped off first so it was not a solid circle, I wanted it to have some depth 
  • The topper and the card mat were both popped up on dimensionals

Now watch the video tutorial to see how this was made :-)
