Jesus is the Reason for the Season

I know it's not even Halloween yet (which I'm not big on, by the way), but I've been making Christmas cards. I have a workshop coming up on the 17th and then my big Christmas Card making Extravaganza on the 24th so I've been busy. Here's a simple little card that we'll be making at my workshop next week. While I love all the cute holiday stuff, for me this is what it's all about. If Jesus hadn't come to earth my life would be without hope.

This card uses some craft cardstock as a base. I added pattern paper from the(X7085B) Everlasting paper packet. I like mixing and matching stamp sets. This one has (A1097) No Greater Love, (D1243 Peace on Earth) and (D1227) Legendary Moments, all from Close to My Heart. I was at Wal-Mart today and so I grabbed some ivory ribbon which went perfectly with this card. The little button with floss just finishes it off. Stamp pads used were Desert Sand and Ponderosa Pine.

Ok, I'm back to the work table for another one. I have lots to make this weekend to stay ahead of the game. If you need any of these supplies, you can order them here.

You are Close to My Heart,

Your card is so pretty, Yvonne! I always have a hard time with sketchy-style images, but I really like the way you used this one. Has a soft look and fits the image (and card) beautifully. I'm sure your workshop ladies will love it too. ;)
