For unto Us a Child Is Born (3)

I made another Christmas card today; at this rate, the holidays will not sneak up on me like they have in past years. (LOL)

This one again uses the CTMH Isaiah 9:6 stamp.

Starting with white cardstock, I put a dark green paper down, then a red paper on top of that. Glitter glue and white sparkly glitter edge it. Next is a layer that has been embossed (Daria EF Crackle) and inked with green ink, and attached with dimensional stickies. The sentiment, which has been edged with red ink, is mounted also with dimensional stickies. Little pine cones were printed out from my computer and inked with extra brown ink; pine sprigs (Poppy Stamps Pine Sprigs) in two shades of green are tucked around the pine cones, which are elevated with dimensional stickies. Green rhinestones embellish the lower left and upper right hand corners.

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
