Double Embossed Christmas Card

In this season of Thanksgiving, I must express how thankful I am for companies who make stamps with scripture and Christian messages. Yesterday I received a set of beautiful Our Daily Bread Designs sentiments that I plan to stamp inside my Christmas cards this year. Here's the first one. It was pretty simple to make using a Cuttlebug embossed snowflake background with silver heat embossed front sentiment from Christmas Flourished Verses.

 Different light angles bring out the two types of embossing. Here's the silver heat embossed sentiment highlighted:

and here the dry embossing is emphasized:

Here's the inside sentiment stamped with old CTMH Spring Iris ink to match the Basic Grey blue violet paper on the front.
For those who translate from English, it says: "Wishing you a heavenly Christmas filled with all God's love and blessings!" You can find this sentiment set, Christmas Blessings, here.
The silver-embossed sentiment on the front is from Christmas Flourished Verses here.
The silver glitter paper is from CTMH. I used it to punch out snowflakes using a Martha Stewart punch. I added CTMH clear sparkles in the center of each snowflake for some extra bling. I finished it off with shiny satin ribbon from my stash.

Thank you for visiting. May God bless you this coming week of November!
