Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge #9...

Today's Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge is based on Luke 2:11: "Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord." The challenge is to make a card or project featuring the nativity or other religious theme about Christ's birth. Without the birth of Christ, we couldn't have had His death and the price for our sins could not have been paid. Isn't is wonderful how God sent His only Son to us to die for our sins? Please, if you're reading this and don't understand what Jesus did for us and our sins, contact one of our DT Sisters. Any of us would be more than happy to share with you the joy of salvation in Christ Jesus.

My card:

Years ago I purchased this adorable stamp by "Stamps Happen" to make Christmas cards with. I loved it, but it's been in hiding for a couple of years...until now! I've taken some kraft colored cardstock to use as the base of my card (no idea what brand, it was just sitting ther in my old pile of cardstock) and then used my nestabilities to cut out some dp from Bo Bunny and the stamped image on whisper white cardstock from Stampin Up. I used sheer white ribbon around the front of the card. I made the tiny snowflakes in the corners with a stamp by "Judith" and put stickles on them. "Noel" is a small clear stamp by G-studios, (I think), with stickles tracing it. I almost always use Colorbox Fluid Chalk for stamping, but the white ink on this card is by Imprintz.

Blessings!

This is sooo SWEET Helen! Your image is so cute and I love the addition of your sheer ribbon and glittery stars :) And using Kraft for the base is perfect as it's kind of earthy and simple--just like where Jesus was born. Love your post Helen. I'm soo getting into the Christmas mood. I have only made 3 Christmas cards now...I think after today I'm more motivated than ever to start making some more this week! :)
Blessings to you!
