Here is a card I made for a Christmas swap I am in. I used the sets The Gift of Love (retired) and Christ is Born, both from SU! I really liked both of these sets but had difficulty trying to use them on their own. I finally decided I wanted the words "Christ is Born" to be the focal point of my card as I do believe that is the true meaning of Christmas...God loving us so much and sending his son, his perfect gift to us.
I finally decided to use just the city part of the stamp from the The Gift of Love set and embossed that in white just like my sentiment. I used Close to Cocoa, Real Red and Whisper White cardstock, along with some retired DP from SU.
It is a very clean and simple card...but I wanted to get across a very simple, yet very special meaning of Christmas.
Thanks for looking.
