A Confirmation Keepsake

A friend from my church asked me to make a special keepsake card for her daughter's confirmation. This is what I came up with. I don't have a special stamp set for confirmations and didn't seem to have just the right cross set either, so I made a cross out of this Spellbinder Frameability by cutting one of the frames in half and adding extension pieces. The break is covered by the prayer. The only die that seemed to fit right over the break left too much white space at the top and bottom so I added the piercing swirls which I thought went well with the theme. If you remember, on Pentacost, when the diciples were in the Upper Room, there came a strong wind that was the Holy Spirit. I also used red and a dove, two other symbols of the Holy Spirit. Since it is for a young girl, I wanted to keep it fairly simple so I used the CB Swiss Dots embossing folder. I made up the prayer and printed it on my computer. On the back, I will also put the daughter's name and confirmation date so it will be personalized. I'm not sure if you can see it, but the lower inside panel, white on white, is dry embossed with a CB folder. At the top it says "with love" and at the bottom is a row of daisys. My friend LOVED the card.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: SU Peace Be Unto You, Elegant Inspirations
