The Savior Is Born

Today's card is for Christmas and is fairly CAS. The colors used are mainly taken from burlap, twine and gold. The brown burlap and twine and the scratchy, rough texture of them symbolizes the humanity of Christ and His humble birth. Born in a common stable with no luxuries, and no bed except the place where the livestock come to feed. The gold symbolizes His deity. He is Son of God, Son of Man; fully God, fully man.

The stamps are from Sassy Stamps, and the matching manger die was ordered to coordinate with the manger stamp. The manger scene is colored with pencils and markers. The ovals were cut from the Plantain Schoolbook Cricut cartridge.

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
