The Messiah Trees

 Welcome 

Just a quick post today.

As I had made a card for my grand daughter, I thought I had better be a good grandma and make one each for the boys too - they are in different families, so I could make them almost identical


Again I used a freebie graphic from Carmen at Beyond the Fringe, printed it out to size,

I embossed the edges, and added glitter glue to the centre of the 'closed' letters.


Mounted onto a red card base, I then added some washi across the bottom of the card to 'fill in the blank', and I was done.

I am listening to The Alleluia Chorus at the moment, of which the scripture above is part of the words, hence the title of my post. 

I am linking this to:

These are lovely with the multicolored letters and I loved your idea of adding sparkle to the 'closed' letters. The gold edges enhance the total look and clever to add the washi at the bottom too. TFS & Merry Christmas. Best wishes for a wonderful 2018.

What lovely cards. And what a difference the sideways view makes - we can really see the full effect of the embossing now.
How on earth did I miss these before?
