First Holy Communion invitations

I've been kind of AWOL from the blog lately, what with the Spring semester nearing the end, Easter just around the corner, and Tyler's First Holy Communion just around the next corner! I haven't had a chance to sit down and play at my craft table in a couple of weeks. So I thought I'd post these invitations that I made for Tyler's First Communion celebration.





There is a common design scheme but I made them all a little bit different, by doing two in each main color (Blueberry Sky, Orange Zest, Lemon Tart and Terracotta Tile), and mixing up the verses (each is a Plain Jane from Verve), the PTI Impression Plate (I used Sunshine, Polka Dot Basics, Tin Types and Woodgrain), and the dies that I used to cut the panel for the verses (Fillable Frames #1 and Mat Stack 4). Added some ribbon and a branch of leaves stamped and die cut with the Turning a New Leaf collection to finish them off.  I think they came out very nice, and came together pretty quickly!

Thanks for looking, and have a wonderful and blessed Easter!

Great job with the communion cards! That Turning a New Leaf die is so versatile, isn't it?

What a cool set of cards! Love the way you pulled them all together with the leaf die cut, yet switched them up with different panel shapes and background colors!
