I made a card using my Cricut machine yesterday, and wanted to get it posted.

Starting out with white cardstock, a layer of aluminum foil was added; a layer of blue paper was run through a Darice EF (Snowflakes). I put VersaMark ink on each of the raised flakes and sprinkled them with white embossing powder, then used the heat tool on it to make them turn white and adhere to the paper.

I used the December 25th Cricut cartridge to cut out the manger scene and the word "JOY," then sprayed them with silver glitter mist (Krylon) to make them sparkle against the night sky.

Michael's had this pretty blue and silver ribbon last time I was there, so, knowing it would be used, into the shopping cart it went.  Using that ribbon across the bottom, I also added a bow over on the right under the sentiment.

Here is the card:

The bow and the sentiment:

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
