First Communion Card- Stick It Down

Hello, I have a few cards that I will be sharing over the next few days! First up is a card inspired by this month's card sketch at Stick It Down:

I made a First Communion card for my son with this sketch. I used the "New Testament" Cricut cartridge for the chalice. After attaching my patterned paper, I realized that I wanted more texture on the background on the upper part of the card, so I used a couple of post its to mask the bottom and used a background stamp to add the plaid to the top. For the host, I used my Score Pal to create the cross. Both the chalice and the host were attached using foam tape. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on a scrap of cardstock and attached that to my card. I finished things off with some blue Liquid Pearls on the top edge of my patterned paper and gold Liquid Pearl accents on the chalice.
