Snowy Christmas Church

Today's card was made using a beautiful Cottage Cutz Church Scene die that I got for my birthday this month. I used four layers of heavy duty aluminum foil for the cut itself and lined the background with dark blue and white papers. To accent the little church, I colored in the windows and door with yellow marker. The papers were glittered with iridescent clear glitter, and finished off with Martha Stewart Coarse Clear glitter, which I love to use on all my winter scenes, because it looks just like snowflakes falling. 

Here is the card:

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
