Detailed Instructions for Making the First Communion Card

1. Fold a 8.5" x 11" piece of cardstock in half to create a 5.5" x 8.5" card. This will be the card base.

2. Using the Stamping Solutions cartridge, select "blackout", (button 45). Cut at size 6". Then you can load a contrasting sheet of paper for the shadow and select "shadow" and "repeat last". Cut at the same size (6").


3. Load a solid piece of paper for "blessed day" and select button 30, cand cut at size 1.25". You can also create a shadow for the words by loading a contrasting sheet of paper, then select "shadow", "repeat last" and "cut".

4. Click here for the Cricut Design Studio cross cut file. You will need to unzip the file, and you must have the Accent Essentials cartridge to cut this. The cross ends up at 4" x 2.5". I then glued the cross on a foil paper background and hand cut a shadow behind it.

5. Glue all the components on the front of the card. The inside of the card is ready for the verse of your choice. It can be handwritten or printed on your computer in a 5" x 10" square.
