Christmas Joy!

Today's card is another one for Christmas.

I had a nice piece of striped paper that was festive and bright, a covered it with two layers of gold-flecked tulle. I have been using tulle a lot lately because some of the metallic ones are so pretty when placed over regular cardstock. The red block is stamped with a Hero Arts "Joy" stamp with VersaMark ink, then sprinkled with gold embossing powder, then heat embossed. It is finished with a handmade double-looped gold bow.

Here it is:

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
