For unto Us a Child Is Born (1)

I have been waiting to use a wonderful Close to My Heart stamp that I got some time ago, and Christmas is the time to use it. I will be making several cards using this stamp, each with a somewhat different design.

I got some silver mesh ribbon from Hobby Lobby yesterday and glued about four layers of it onto a piece of white cardstock. Onto that I put four corner embellishments (Cheery Lynn B162 Lace Corner Deco B). After stamping the sentiment, I cut around it with those kind of scissors that make a pretty patterned cut, then inked around the edges with silver ink, then black ink around the outermost edges. This is put onto the card with dimensional stickies. A white sparkly bow is added for a finishing touch. Here is the card:

And here is a closeup of the bow:

Romans 10:9-11
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
