The Greatest Gift

I am working on new Christmas cards and wanted to start with this one.  I love this so much.


Front sentiment:  The greatest gift.

Inside sentiment:  May the miracle of Christmas shine brightly on you.

This one features baby  Jesus on top of presents, as the greatest gift.  It is embossed with swirls and snowflakes, colored in watercolors and is trimmed in damask and lace.

The colors were inspired by the Unity Stamp Company {be inspired} October / November 2013 color challenge.  It also works with the sketch challenge, I think. Also, included with their  FWF projects.

Tools used include:
Unity Stamp Co The greatest gift is baby Jesus itty bitty and ... everything Christmas, embossing folder, lace, glitter glue, Ranger ink, Canson watercolor paper.

There is still time to enter the raffle drawing from lots of sponsors, including me.  You can enter on that post.  (Ended.)

Have a fabulous day.
