Star Struck Deer

As we send out over 90 Christmas cards, it’s a challenge to come with a layout that has at least some of the dimensional elements I love to use, but that can be completed in this lifetime.  I also want to keep the theme focused on the reason for Christmas.  Yet there is a wide range of fantastic stamped art opportunities available at this time of year and they are hard to pass up. 
Solution . . .

 . . . put a delightful image on the card front, and use a message of faith inside. 
Mission accomplished!

The message in this card says,
In all of the laughter,
In the midst of fun,
Know the reason for joy
Is the gift of God’s Son. 
Christ is born . . . Glorify Him!
