Christmas is Love

I made a number of Christmas cards this year, about 30 in all. Far fewer than previous years, but then I started in November instead of July. Some of them I posted on earlier posts, many I made and mailed immediately, so no scanning was done. This is the last card I made Sunday and my favorite. A one of a kind made for my sister Angie, who got me comfortable with cracked glass technique and tying ribbons. She also shares a  love of trains with me and her grandson Nathaniel.
On the back I wrote this verse in white:
This is love: not that we loved God, 
but that he loved us 
and sent his Son 
as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

Merry Christmas!

Thank You Card

I love the colors in this paper. I think they are kind of Christmas-y, so this could be a good thank you card for after the holiday.I used Versamark ink and gold embossing powder for the sentiment and a gold paint pen inside the scallops.
