"Fear not, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord." ~Luke 2:10-11
And so goes THE greatest story of all time, as told in the gospel of Luke. I'll admit I choose Christmas cards more for how they look than for what they say (at least I'm being honest ... I like pretty things!). This one's got it all, though - a powerful reminder of the real meaning of Christmas and an elegant presentation.
Once again, I've used stamps from the Angel set by Our Daily Bread Designs. I remember last year taking a while to embrace Stampin' Up's Holiday Harmony designer paper as Christmas paper. "You've got to be kidding?" was my first reaction, lol! Purely Pomegranate and River Rock just weren't traditional enough for my taste. My, how that changed. I ended up using it for last year's Christmas card, and now this year, I'm so disappointed those colors and this paper have been retired!
I stamped the Angel in River Rock on Very Vanilla. The sentiment is stamped over the angel in Versafine Onyx Black, then clear embossed. I embellished with Vintage brads, gold cord, Pomegranate satin ribbon, and decorative corners cut out of Gold Leaf metallic card stock with one of the Cuttlebug Vintage dies.
Thanks for looking! Have a wonderful day!
