The Real Gift (1)

Today I am posting another CAS Christmas card, which reminds us that Jesus is the Reason for the Season. Each day I press in more and more to know the Treasure that He truly is, right here, right now. We don't have to wait to get to Heaven to experience the majesty of Who He Is. We can know a measure of it right here on earth.  :o)

Starting with white cardstock, a red piece of background paper from my stash is added. The sentiment is printed from my computer. (I print a lot from the computer because of the message I want to send forth is not always available in a stamp.) It is punched from a Fiskars scallop punch and backed with green paper using pop dots. It is attached to the card also with pop dots. The green and gold ribbon finishes the look.

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
