The Real "Reason for the Season"

And here lies the real "reason for the season..." Jesus Christ's birth and sacrifice--all for mankind's salvation! Read more about it in the Holy Scriptures...you will be sure to be blessed this CHRISTmas season!

Christmas card designs that feature the message of the Christ Child are my very favorite! This week's Stamp Simply challenge is to create a design that is easily mass produced, and this most certainly is!
KaiserCraft "Belle" Collection contains lovely colors and patterns...muted cranberry reds, multiple greens, and glimmer as well. These are my favorite colors to use in my home decorations...my Christmas tree is usually placed in my dining room, where I have cranberry toile curtains and a mixture of cranberry and cream plates on a beadboard plate rail.

Spellbinder's Poinsettia dies, as well as a verse from Our Daily Bread design's "Luke 2:11" make the special touches on this card. The verse is stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink onto PaperTrey Ink's Rustic White cardstock, then die cut with a Spellbinder Oval die. Even though die cuts were used, they are pretty quick to produce, yet add a "wow" factor to a otherwise super simple design.

A Foof-a-La, La, La Collection button, thread through with May Art's narrow cream silk ribbon, finishes this fast and easy Christmas greeting.

A beautiful card and I agree I like the cards with the real message of Christmas! Hallelujah, Christ is Born! This may be a mass produced card BUT certainly doesn't look like it. TFS

This is just beautiful Deb -- that poinsettia and message together just create a stunning pair on the front of your card! ;-)

I want some lessons from you -- your creations are so amazing and always so beautiful. They always have such a "graceful and elegant" feel to them.
