The Real Gift (3)

I am posting another Christmas card today with the same sentiment as two previous cards; this time I used a stamped background on kraft paper with torn edges laid on white cardstock. Brown is the color of Jesus' humanity; He humbled Himself and became a living, breathing human being just like us, but without sin. The words on the background depict some of His characteristics.

The sentiment is punched from a Fiskars scallop punch and mounted on a circle cut from a Cricut cartridge, Accent Essentials. It is finished with a humble little green and white polka dot grosgrain ribbon for a very CAS 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
