SNTODBD38 So Loved

This week Our Daily Bread Designs Stamping Time:  On Assignment Challenge was Christmas cards.  It was hard for me to think Christmas when it was over 100° outside.  Then I decided to look through some of my paper and found a piece that inspired me.

I layered dark blue and kacky on a white square card base.  Then I added a layer of white with the sides punched with a border punch.  On top of this I added more dark blue and then a piece of this gorgeous paper.  The candles remind me that God is the Light of the World and He gave His Son because He loved us so much.  To me that is what Christmas is all about.

The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs' new set, Large Scrapbook Words.  I stamped the sentiment in Adirondack Denim Blue ink on a piece of vellum.  I sponged a little blue around the edges and layered it on white rectangle.  I added this to a dark blue tag, cut with one of Spellbinders' Fancy Tags 2.  I used an older Spellbinders' snowflake die, along with a Martha Stewart punch, to add two snowflakes around the sentiment.

Due to either blogger or my computer being difficult, I missed the deadline to enter ODBD’s challenge but they will have a new and exciting one starting tomorrow.  Now I am in the mood for Christmas.  This might be the earliest I started my Christmas cards.
