Christmas Card # 4 Post
|"Mama's Present" handmade Christmas card|
Here is the completed "Mama's Present" Ruthie's Greetings Character Card. It has the Matthew 2:11 verse at the bottom which says, "And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, ad worshipped him: and when they had opened there treasures, they presented unto him gifts;gold, and frankincense, and myrrh". I really enjoyed creating this card. It brings us back to the reason why we celebrate Christmas. Through the years, the Christmas holiday has become sooo commercial that many of us have forgotten why we celebrate it. I wrote a blog post, a few posts ago about how Christmas colors became Christmas Colors. The article cited in my post talks about red, green, yellow, silver/white. Now, I have noticed that the colors of pink and other colors have been used for decorations. This is one of the results of the Christmas holiday has become more commercial. I hope that my greeting cards have helped to bring us back to real reason of why we celebrate Christmas. It is all about the birth of our Lord.
