Psalm 23:1 Tiered Gatefold Card

Today I have a fun card called a tiered gatefold card. I recently saw a version of this card in a card challenge I entered, so I followed the link and watched a video showing how to make the card. I jotted down the measurements used and created a cut file for the card in my Silhouette Design Studio software. Although I'd like to fine tune it a little (my score marks are off just a bit in some places), I'm happy with the end product. Here's the video I watched (from Iced Images) to give me the instructions/measurements I needed (I didn't add all the layers from the video, but this follows the general idea):

Psalm 23 is such a comforting psalm, and the first verse is one I love to recite when I'm worried or afraid. The Lord is my shepherd, and since He is the perfect shepherd who knows my needs even better than I do, I can trust that I will lack nothing I truly need. I hope that's an encouragement to anyone reading this post. Here are the cards I sent to the shut ins at my church this week using this fold:
