These cards were made from another new purchase, Inspired Heart, a Cricut Lite. Now, I don't make an awful lot of religious cards but this cart is useful for so many other occasions. There are some beautiful words on the cart too. Different religions-Hindu, Christian, Muslim, Jewish- are represented, with relevent worshipping places and symbols.
I loved these images of praying children and thought that they would make great Baptism (for an older child) or Confirmation cards, although, surprisingly, there is no 'confirmation' word on the cart. I made both of the cards the same only changing the colourway and the image. The images were cut from pearlised card with a mirri ovals, which were embossed after cutting. The images were adhered to the ovals with foam pads. A simple plain white mat edged with the same pearlised cardstock and mirri was fixed to the front of the card with foam tape and the image was adhered to the mat with foam pads. The 'Baptism' word was cut from pearlised cardstock, shadowed with mirri and adhered below the image. I could have added some silver cord down the side if the card with a cross charm on it, but I'd already fixed the panel to the card.
Praying Child & Sentiment-Inspired Heart Cricut Lite
Just a note- All the new carts are in the Cricut Lite-style boxes.
