Rejoice! The Savior Has Come

Today's Christmas card is very CAS, but I wanted to give it some extra zing with some glittery gold paper. I ran the gold paper through my Cricut machine using the "A Quilted Christmas" cartridge. This design was one of the card features on the cartridge, but the cartridge cuts the paper in a shape that wastes a lot of paper, and I only want to use the part of the paper that has the actual design on it. So I manipulated the paper so that there would be less waste. The design is of a couple singing Christmas carols. I used a Sweet 'n' Sassy stamp from the Jesus Is Born set and heat embossed it with gold ink, then die cut it out with the smallest die from the Spellbinders Lacy Ovals collection.

Here is the card:

The inside is stamped with a sentiment from the same Sweet 'n' Sassy collection:

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 

Acts 13:38-39
"Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God—something the law of Moses could never do."  NLT
