First Holy Communion

This invitation is for our son's First Holy Communion. It's hard to believe he his old enough for this beauitful Sacrament already! Wasn't it just yesterday that he was Baptized and we spent our days happily nursing, playing and napping together?!
And I am having great fun using my NEW Glimmer Mist and Cuttlebug and Embossing Folders too!! Woohoo - don't you just adore playing with new toys and bling? I believe the Glimmer Mist is STILL ON SALE at CreativePlayStamps through the end of this week only! Go check it out - they have the limited edition Spring Releases along with a large variety of other colors.

This Design has the Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist sprayed all over the card as a final touch. Though let me NOTE: DO NOT spray Glimmer Mist on stamped vellum or the ink will run! lol - you guessed it, I learned the hard way so you don't have to - isn't that sweet of me?! LOL

This invitation got a thumbs up and a "Cool" from my son - so I guess it is good, huh? :) I used a sentiment from the CreativePlayStamps First Communion set - and used the technique of Direct to Stamp Omitting - i.e. using a Stampin' Write directly on the stamp to only ink up the words I wanted. I really like the choice of typestyles in this set - CreativePlayStamps did a nice job touching on a variety of typestyle preferences for this important Sacrament.
