The big weekend is almost here for my oldest son’s First Communion. Family is coming into town and it is sure to be a great time for all!!
This is the invitation that we sent to friends and family. It was such a joy to make these! My son chose the colors (yep, the apple doesn’t fall far from this tree) and they seem perfect! I was actually going to use just Basic Gray and Very Vanilla but he told me it wasn’t happy enough. He was definitely right!! The Early Espresso and Baja Breeze set just the right tone. I played around with this cross and found that using the “sharp” end of the Stampin’ Write Marker is great for coloring the narrow spaces. The sentiment is from Inviting. I love that the font is flexible for many card styles! A Basic Pearl was the finishing touch on the stamped panel and I popped that panel on Dimensionals. I have to admit that I am pretty proud of this one!! The best part is that it was simple enough to replicate and not make myself too crazy.
You’ll notice that the ColorLab Challenge did not post this week. We will be back next Thursday with our new colors and you will love them! I’m so glad you were able to stop in today. I’m hoping to have a fun post ready for Mother’s Day (hint…I didn’t make the cards). Have a great weekend and I’ll see you again soon!
