For unto Us a Child Is Born

I made another Christmas card; at this rate, they will all be done soon.

Starting with white cardstock, a red piece is laid on top of it. The next layer is white paper; you can't actually tell, but it was run through a Cuttlebug EF (Swiss Dots). On top of that is a layer of silver tulle. The focal point of this one is the sentiment: "For unto us a child is born." It is mounted on a red piece of cardstock and put in the upper left hand corner of the card with dimensional stickies. A white glittery double-looped bow is added on the right, then the whole card was sprayed with Krylon Diamond Dust spray. Finally, three red rhinestones were added at the bottom of the framed sentiment. Note: It is really important that if you are going to spray your entire card with any embellishing spray, do it before you add rhinestones. Otherwise, their sparkle will be dulled.

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

  1. Very pretty! It reminds me of how some streets look when all the neighbors have decorated their homes with those icicle lights and every now and then you come across an independent thinker who has red bulbs on his house! Love all the wonderful sparklel! I must get some of that Krylon Diamond Dust! Thanks for dropping this beauty off by our house here at 613 Avenue Create!
