First Communion Patchwork Cards

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

As you might probably remember from my previous post, May is traditionally the month of First Communions in Poland. Therefore last time I shared an exploding box and today I bring you two cards:

I used the Miles Apart collection and employed one of my favourite card techniques – the patchwork. I allows you to use up even the smallest pieces of papers and is therefore perfect for many scrappers who – like me – are organically unable to throw such pieces away 😉 And so I used a square punch and made two backgrounds in pinks…


…and blues:

The cards are actually very, very simple: just a chipboard Host chalice, die-cut leaves, three lilies and acrylic gems. But the layered background with various patterns make them look rich and colourful.

Here’s what I used:

    2 very beautiful cards here again today Maja, and I agree, they are really easy to make, but still looks sooo beautiful and elegant and is perfect for this kinds of cards and sooo easy to change for another occasion just by changing the chipboardpiece. Wonderful idea and it looks amazing, well done once again.
