Weekend Challenge Card, Circut Layered Image, Freebies and Cricut Hack

 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.
