Clean and Simple Communion Card

A friend’s daughter is receiving her first communion on Sunday, and this is the card I made for her.  I love CAS cards, but it’s not always easy trying not to add more little details to the card!


This lovely embossing folder is made by Darice.  The sentiment was computer generated and printed right on the card.  Then I used the large and small Martha Stewart butterfly punches to give dimension to one of the embossed butterflies.  I used white vellum and pink cardstock for the butterfly, and then pink gem stones for the body.  This card came together in a matter of minutes.

Have a great day!
