Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room

Today I am posting another Christmas card. 

This one, like so many projects, was a bit of an experiment, but I am happy with how it turned out. The experiment part was using a piece of gold fabric glued onto a piece of white cardstock, then running it through a Paper Studio Swirls EF. The embossing came out very distinctly, as you can see in the picture below:

I cut a Christmas foliage piece from Teresa Collins December 25th Cricut cartridge and added some little 3-D paint berries to it. Then a red poinsettia (Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia) was added; it is spray painted with sparkly red glitter paint, and the center is made with a gold liquid pearl. The sentiment is printed from my computer onto a frame, and attached with pop dots:

The poinsettia:

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
