1st Communion card

Hi All, I made this for my friend Meg's grandson.  I am showing you 2 shots of the same card, I wanted you to see how the cross lines up in the center of the Word Art 1st Communion and also to see that I used a clear see through polyester card and mounted the printed sheet of card stock behind it.   I cut the Iron Cross image from a Penny Duncan CD and the double frame is from Alaa Studios Fancy Frame 2.  I mounted 1 frame inside on the white card stock and the other on the outside clear.  When you close the card the smaller outside frame lets the larger inside the card frame show through.  I wracked my brain trying to come up with a good design for the envelope, since all my friends expect them to be lined now.  I was going to put some paper with yellow roses in it, then I realized what 8 year old boy wants to see yellow roses?  Then the idea of putting his name and 1st Communion came to me, I think she will love it.  
I love it because I cut it with my KNK Zing, I am learning more and more each day!  A big thanks to Julie at MTC Tuts, she has been an angel to help me figure out the new program, I could not have made this with out her help.  Anyone else needing help with learning Make The Cut come join the Yahoo group, everyone is friendly and so very helpful.  
Well, that's it, thanks for looking.  ~Diane
