The Gift Card

23 days and counting...

The fruit of the Spirit is
 love, joy, peace,
patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness, self-control;
against such things there is no law.
 Galatians 5:22,23

Maybe not a verse you associate with Christmas, but this stamp by Inkadinkado  "Joy, Peace, Love mini" does just that. How appropriate to celebrate Love come down to earth in the gift of a Savior, the Joy that that gift brings and then Peace...what He will ultimately bring the World as Prince of Peace.

This stamp has hearts and holly forming a  pretty snowflake. I think it would make a very nice ornament, too. On this card I've used it to accent my 'package' like a bow. Stamped with Brilliance Graphite Black.  I've used Prismacolor pencils to color and Martha Stewart marble glitter to highlight a few areas. Red gingham ribbon (JoAnn's) on white felt cardstock(Hollo's) , embossed with Sizzix's (Powdered Sugar and Snow Globe set) holly embossing folder, then mounted on green cardstock (Hollo's)

and a close-up

Spellbinders Standard Circles and Classic Scallop Circles were used to cut this out of Brilliant White and Red Basketweave (Hollo's), white gel pen used to dot each of the scallops. Mounted with Glue Dots Pop-dots.

Well, that's the card for today.
...thanks so very much for stopping by...
