Glory to God in the Highest!

Hello!  I am back to working on my Christmas card stash.  I am hoping that I am close to finishing however, I did not help matters by deciding to add in a bunch of the church people (about 20!).  I know I may regret it because it seems I am not doing "flat" cards, which bulky means additional stamp $.  Today's card is a religious one and it is not flat!  But, it is very pretty and was simple!  Let me show you ... enjoy!


I have to tell you that the ribbon is not as red as it seems in the pic.  It is more of a deep dark burgundy.  But, it is so pretty.  Originally my card had a green strip where the ribbon is, and I was thinking a skinny ribbon over the top of that green.  Well, a lot of the ribbons at Crafty Scrapper are wider, so I changed the card a little so I could make this beautiful burgundy ribbon work.  The gold balls around the tie were also bought in the ribbon area and is a gold wire with balls every so often.  I thought it was really cool and would add a little something to my card.  It does, but it also adds bulk.  Maybe I should hand out some of these cards.  I could use the excuse that they were bulky. ??  From the stamp set here, I also used the sentiment "For unto us a child is born, unto us a child is given." on some of the cards.  And then the inside sentiment for all of them, I used "May you be richly blessed this Christmas and always".  I ordered this set especially for this group. Not that these stamps are wonderful for everyone, they definitely are!  Do you like how it came out?
