A Little Faith

Happy Sunday, everyone!!  I do hope you're having a beautiful day, and I thank you for spending a bit of it with me.  I have another CADB design for you, and I'm so happy to have Sunday for this week's theme, which just happens to be 'With Faith.'  While there are many kinds of faith, I decided to work within a religious meaning.  I've been wanting to make more use of my Cricut and the many cartridges that I have, and I knew I had a cartridge with appropriate images for a 'faith' card.  So I went to my cart stash and pulled it out.

The card I made is really clean and simple.  Using the Cricut Craft Room software made designing my card really easy.  (Disclaimer:  no affiliation, not receiving payment or product for comments)  Once I had the design ready, the rest was simply a matter of choosing paper, cutting and assembling.

I chose the main image that I wanted, then created the card cutout using the shadow of the main image.  I chose the word 'faith' with its shadow and mounted it using foam tape.  I cut a matching white layer for the inside of the card so I could stamp a sentiment and have a nice space for a signature and personal message, if desired.

For just a tiny bit of glimmer (which is extremely hard to see in the photos) I used a glitter pen to outline all the white shapes.
This card fits into a 4" x 6" envelope.  Yes, I know, not my usual A2.  Crazy isn't it?  I jumped WAY out of my comfort zone on this one!!     heehee

Here are the very brief details:
          Cricut Cartdridge:  Inspired Heart (Cut on Cricut Expression 2)

See you again soon.  In the meantime remember to always keep your creative genius happy and well fed!!!
