Red and Green

Today's card was created using a base card from Anna Griffin's Christmas collection. I ordered the pop up card set, but only made one that popped up because it seemed difficult to make the card in a way that looked good to me. So, I am using a lot of her card bases to make regular Christmas cards.

A red cardstock inset was cut to fit in the frame on the base card, then a punched sentiment from Diane Noble, who is a DT member of Word Art Wednesday, was placed in the red square with pop dots. The star is cut from the Cricut December 25th cartridge, heat embossed with gold embossing ink, and embellished with a rhinestone in the center of it. Gold glitter is added; if you hold the card just right, a burst of gold shines and adds a festive feel. A red and white double-looped gingham bow finishes the card.

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
