Theme Day Thursday - Religious Cards

Welcome To

Today's Theme
at My Cricut Craft Room
Religious Cards

I struggled a bit after I signed up for this week's
Theme Day Thursday.
I had planned on using some of the
religious script stickers
in my stash,
but I didn't think about 
which Cricut Cartridge I would use.
Oy Vey!!!

So I scoured my collection, which only
took a brief moment...LOL,
and the light bulb
began to shine above my head!
Over The Hill Cricut Cartridge
<insert bright light>     

This cartridge has some fun cuts.
I was particularly drawn
to the Gate Fold card, that 
literally has a Gate Layer.

I cut the base layer (card) using a cloud/sky design card stock.
For the top layer (gate), I used a shimmery silver card stock.
Both were cut at Fit To Page (7 inches)
There were some extra
swirls near the lower valleys of the top edge
of the card.  
I trimmed them to make this look a little less, spooky.
To decorate the inside of the card,
I used a vellum Scripture sticker by Creative Imaginations,
a fun Cherub resin I got from a very sweet
friend, Heather Flaherty of I Heart {ippity},
When I cut the Belly Band that 
accompanies the card,
I also did Fit To Page (7 inches).
When  scoring it to fit around the card,
the two ends didn't match up on the back.
I guess that is  the reason 
there was a little red 3" marked in the booklet.
(that'll teach me)

I looked at the bright side
and figured this gave me an opportunity
to play with some of my ribbons and fibers
that get neglected sometimes.

I found a fabulous feathery white fiber
in my stash to bring the two ends together.
I used my hole punch
to create small holes to feed the fiber through.

I chose to tie the ends in the front,
 rather than the back like instructed
(Rebel, I know...ha ha ha)
