I hope you all are having a nice winter weekend.
A fun day here, we set up our new teen Sunday school, at church, went to lunch with a friend, and just enjoying some downtime tonight.
I was able to make two challenge cards for the FB group Christian Card Makers. I found a great image on the Cricut Site, it is an Acess image and perfect for what I had in mind. The inspiration was actually a piece of paper in my scrap pile. The challenge was to make two cards and get them mailed
These cards are 5.5x6.5
On the inside a favorite verse of mine
This Verse was digitized by the talented Karen Murray
It was also featured on the Word Art Wednesday Blog several years ago.
I have it for you to right-click and save
This prints out beautifully!
Now for my Cricut tip:
This image actually had 5 layers, I only used the top three, I just did not need that much detail.
By the time the top layer was cut it was super fine and I was only using a medium grade white core cardstock. That was almost a disaster! Plus I was cutting with a regular blade!
To help release it from a new Cricut mat (uber sticky) I used my heat tool on top of the cut, just warming it up a little bit, the fine cut came up with ease and no tears! I then used a blending brush and went over the image with distress ink - and that covered any white bits.
One more freebie!
Hope this little tip helps with your next fine cut image.
Thanks for stopping by
