Luke 2:11

Today's card was a challenge in a different way. The guidelines were that it must be an embossed Christmas card, and that in addition to the sentiment, it can have only ONE EMBELLISHMENT! This is because a group of us are sending Christmas cards to a lady who has moved to another country, so that she may send cards to her friends this Christmas. The restriction on embellishments is because they must fit into a flat envelope for easier shipping. Wish there could have been more splashy 3-D embellishments, but these were the rules. After the patterned paper was embossed, the raised design was inked with silver ink so that the pattern could show up better.

These were used:

Diane's Daydream Designs Elegant Snowflakes Digi Paper
Diane's Daydream Designs The Glory of Christmas Sentiment Set
Darice Crosses EF
Silver Ink
Red Ribbon
Crop-A-Dile Green Deco Chomper

Here it is:

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
