Christ the Savior Is Born

Today I am posting a Christmas card made for a special friend who (like me) loves bling. When I gave it to her, she said, "This is not just a card; it is an ornament for my tree!" This card is gold upon gold, and that is how my friend is--truly golden!

Starting out with white cardstock, a black layer is laid down, then a gold embossed layer of paper I got from a discontinued wallpaper book. Then a gold ribbon is placed horizontally. The sentiment is printed out from my computer and is framed with the Cricut cartridge "Elegant Edges." (I love this cartridge, as it has so many beautiful ways to frame a sentiment, or anything else, for that matter. Very versatile.) Three gold liquid pearls are placed at the bottom of the sentiment, and a gold bow below the sentiment finishes the card.

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
