In the Catholic faith, First Communion is an important event for children and their families. When inviting people to the event, sending communion announcements or even when saying thank you for gifts and attendance, you might need to send cards. To add a personal touch to the day, consider using rubber stamps to create one-of-a-kind cards for this special religious occasion. Traditional religious imagery will work well as the theme for your cards.

Crosses are a popular piece of religious imagery that is perfect for a first communion card stamping project. Stamp pieces of card stock with a cross design, or add presence to a decoratively stamped card with a paper cross. If cutting from paper, you can cut simple crosses by hand or create them using a die-cut machine. Dress up these stamped cards even more by attaching a chain of beads to the fold of the card or somewhere in the design to resemble a rosary. Rather than attaching beads, you can also use small round stamps to look like rosary beads.
Hands in Prayer
Yet another religious image appropriate for this card project is the visual of hands in prayer. You can often purchase these rubber stamps from arts and crafts suppliers or even religious bookstores. If your stamp is large enough to fill the front of your card, centre your image. To create interest, layer scrap pieces of white and gold paper to create depth to your design. Arrange asymmetrically, and stamp as desired. Customise prayer stamps to fit any other religious event as well.
Bread and Wine
During the First Communion, children consume bread and wine (in many contemporary cases, it is wafers and grape juice) for the first time. The bread symbolises the body of Christ, and the wine symbolises the blood. These images are ideal for a card stamping project. Consider stamping bunches of grapes at the corners of the front of the card. Along the border, you could stamp grain and wheat to symbolise the bread. These images refer back to the meaning of the event with the presence of stamped crosses or gold cups.
