Ribbon and Wreath

Today another Christmas card is posted!  Getting these done before time to send them out so that part of Christmas will be stress-free. (Although, come to think of it, Jesus never meant for us to be stressed out over His birthday, did He?)  Perhaps my attitude about priorities needs an adjustment.  I need to just take time to sit with Him and discern what He wants me to pour energy into.  That way, stress of doing unnecessary stuff is eliminated. Anxiety relieved.   :o)

A little note about the 3-D paint used to make the berries on the holly: when they are first squeezed out of the bottle, they look pointed, like little Hershey Kisses. To fix that, if you will very lightly and very gently tap the paper on a hard surface, the points will settle down into a nice little ball shape.

These were used to make the card:
  • Tulle with gold threads
  • Printed ribbon
  • Impression Obsession Twig Wreath
  • Martha Stewart Holly Punch; Pine Sprigs Punch
  • Gold and white cord
  • Shiny Red Barn colored Scribbles 3-D paint
Here it is:

I wanted to frame the words "Holy" and "Savior" with the wreath.

Hand-tied double-looped bow:

Romans 10:9-10
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
