Hand in Hand Christmas

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16



Embossed in gold, I thought this tiny baby's hand holding the finger from "Hand-in Hand"would be a wonderful way to represent God the Father and God the Son for a card representing the true miracle of Christmas.

Inside I added Gina K's "Merry Christmas" from "Seasonal Sayings" to the front, and then generated the following verse with my computer in black (I wasn't able to approximate a gold ink color I was happy with, but the gold brads echo my embossing from the front)

To make the card I used Gina K Pure Luxury 80 and 120 lb CS and SU! Gold Glory EP, Brushed Gold CS and brads. Isn't that gold trimmed ribbon perfect with this embossed line art? It's also Gina K, from the Pure Luxury Holiday Ribbon assortment.


This is probably what most of my Christmas cards will be this year! (To save time, you could print your verse directly on the card base before you do your scoring and cutting, or hand-write your verse, or stamp another one you have that fits the image.)


I hope this card brings you joy today!! Thank severyone who came to the release, I had a great time, and thanks to everyone who's shown so much support and love for this set already! :)
