Someone asked me to make a card for a boy’s first communion. I don’t make them often, so this was a challenge. But I think I did a good job. I also entered this card into the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge.

For the background I wanted to create clouds. I die cut a cloud border with the Puffy Clouds Borders from Lawn Fawn. I used this as a mask. I took Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and applied it onto the paper coming off from the mask. This way the background is very subtle.

All the dies I used are from Lawn Fawn. I took the Leafy Tree Backdrop: Landscape and die cut the tree from brown cardstock. The leaf cluster and separate leaves I die cut from Noble Fir cardstock. I also used Noble Fir cardstock to die cut the grass, with the Meadow Borders die. The flowers were die cut from Sugraplum and Guava cardstock. Last I die cut the sun, with the Sun and Moon die, from Fake Tan and Sunflower cardstock.

I stamped the images. The boy and the ballons are from the Bicycle Built For You stamp set. The rock is from Mermaid For You. I colored the images with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Skin: E00 – E11
Hair: E57 – E29
Sweater + shoes: C2 – C5
Pants: R14 – R46
Balloons: YR04 – YR07/ Y17 – Y38/ R14 – R46
Basket: E57 – E29
Rock: W0 – W2

I die cut the images and started assembling the card. I stamped the sentiment in Manatee Ink and added the panel to a Fake Tan cardbase.

I love this card and I think I managed to create a fun first communion card. Please check the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Blog, so you can see all the other entries or maybe participate yourself.
