Confirmation Cards...In Bulk

I am on my last "bulk card" requirement for May.  If you read my blog, you have seen bulk cards for Evening of Honor invites, Servant Day (birthday cards for Family Services) and graduation cards.  In each of these case, my family was drafted (NOT optional) into helping me with cutting, gluing and assembling.  I think I have used up all my good will with them - so I had to make these bulk cards very, very, VERY simple so I could get them done this morning.  These are for our church to give to our youth who are being confirmed this weekend...


Confirmation

Just two stamps, a swipe of a red Copic, three circle punches (cutting them in half is the hardest part) and a few black nailhead stickers.

I used the colors from The Paper Players because they are so cheerful and they can work for boys or girls.

  • Stamps: Stampendous cross, Paper Inspirations sentiment
  • Paper: Poppy Parade (and I'll do some backed in Baja and Daffodil, because as much as I love my church - I am NOT happy about using up my retiring Poppy Parade!!), dsp in all colors (the Poppy is from Sunny Garden)
  • Ink: black and R08 Copic
  • Accessories: Mark Richards black nailheads

Very nice, Kim! Love the clean design with the pop of pattern on the half-circles. Thanks for joining us at the Paper Players this week. :)

How bright and cheerful. Just perfect for a special day in a young persons life. You are so very clever Kim ♥

I've never done "bulk" cards...so I admire your tenacity!

I love this---how clever! And I admire the fact that you enlist your family's help with the mass production!

This is a beautiful card. You've done more on it than I did with my Confirmation cards. I just pop matted white on white, used my Cuttlebug embosser for the mat, cut out a scalloped nestabilities circle and popped it onto the mat. Added a decorative gold cross sticker in the center and was done. LOL. I like yours much better :) I didn't even take a photo of mine. I was in such a rush I forgot to. Your card is beautiful.

Great card Kim! Love the half circles and how you only used three nailheads/brads. :)

Jenn said...

Oh I just love this card! Fabulous clean layout-perfect for mass production but those half circles and sticker brads give such a fantastic finishing touch. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players.

This is such great confirmation card! You've used such a clean style and cutting the circles in half is genius and very effective. Thanks for joining us this week at The Paper Players!
