Peace on Earth

This Christmas card was so much fun to make, and new tools were used, which made it even more enjoyable. I used a new stencil and dabbed it with Versamark Ink over a piece of black cardstock, then sprinkled it with pewter embossing powder and heat embossed it. To make it really sparkle, I sprinkled it first with fine Diamond glitter, then sprayed it with glue again and sprinkled it with coarse clear glitter. This really gave it the appearance of snow falling.

The sentiment was also heat embossed and die cut, then put on the background with pop dots. It was also treated twice with the same glitters a the background. A silver ribbon with a double looped bow finished the card.

I used these in making the card:

  • The Craft Workshop Aspen Trees Stencil
  • Versamark Ink
  • Pewter Embossing Powder
  • SU Peace Stamp
  • Spellbinders Labels 18
  • SU Diamond Glitter
  • Martha Stewart Coarse Clear Glitter
  • Silver Ribbon

Here it is:

This shows the glitter better:

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
