Blue and Silver Glittered Nativitiy

Today's card is monochromatic using shades of blue with silver.

Starting out with a blue paper, I embossed it with a Darice Snowflake EF, then glittered it with sprinkle-on glitter. If you rub some glitters after sprinkling, it takes on a whole different shimmer, as did this one. Since it was glittered, the embossed snowflakes hardly show up, but, oh, well.  :)

The manger scene is from a Cottage Cutz die called Nativity Scene. I use this die a lot at Christmas time to make cards because it embodies the true meaning of Christmas, which is something I like to include in all my Christmas cards. I used four layers of heavy duty aluminum foil with the die. Behind the die cut is a blue and silver ribbon, and below the die cut is another different blue and silver ribbon bow.

Here it is:

A large clear rhinestone was added to accentuate the Bethlehem star:

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
