Glory to God in the Highest

I am trying to get a head start on Christmas cards. You know how quickly the holidays can sneak up on us, and so Christmas card making is a weekly event right now.

I have this wonderful stamp in my drawer that was perfect for the occasion. It has different names of Jesus:  Messiah, Emmanuel, Truth, Deliverer, etc., and I thought it would make a great background for a Christmas card. I stamped embossing ink onto white cardstock, then put green embossing powder on it and used my heat tool on it. The little shepherd boy is a cut out; he is put on with dimensional stickies, as is the sentiment. Both stamps were purchased at either Joann's or Hobby Lobby.

The card is finished with a red polka dot bow and two little rhinestones in the upper right hand corner.  Here is the card:

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
