Christmas - Philippians 2:6-7

Today I am posting a card with a Scripture that may not have been a traditional verse used on a Christmas card, but I thought it was so appropriate.

Starting with white cardstock, a black layer was added, then a layer of aluminum foil run through an EF. The sentiment is printed from my computer on white cardstock (it looks sort of pink in the picture, but it is really white!), and cut with a Cricut cartridge; the frame is cut from a black paper from the same cartridge, and it is glued and glittered. The glitter came out looking blue, and that seemed to go well with the rest of the card (happy accident!). The card is finished with a silver glittery bow that also picks up a blue color in some of the sparkly places.

These were used to make the card:
  • Paper Studio Curling Ribbons EF
  • Aluminum Foil (4 thicknesses)
  • Cricut Elegant Edges Cartridge
  • Silver Ribbon
  • Blue Liquid Pearls

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
