Beautiful Season Christmas Cards

Beautiful Season rubberstamp set
For Christian-themed cards for the holiday season, Beautiful Season rubberstamp set makes lovely handmade Christmas cards that hit all the right notes of classic Christian Christmas.  I love all the "sentiments" or greetings in this Stampin' Up! rubberstamp set.  With two inspirational greetings for cards plus a little label for gift giving, it's great value.  I created the cards shown here for a Christmas Card Class earlier this year, using a classic color scheme (Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, and River Rock) to coordinate with the classic images.

Beautiful Season rubberstamp setThe sentiment "May your season be blessed with all things bright and beautiful," calls to mind the lovely Anglican hymn "All Things Bright and Beautiful,"  extolling the wonders of God's creation.  We spent 9 years in England, and our two older children attended a wonderful Church of England school for a few years.  "All Things Bright and Beautiful" is a favorite hymn in the UK, particularly among children, and it brings back very fond memories for my family.  Here are the charming lyrics:

Refrain

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.

Refrain

The rich man in his castle,

The poor man at his gate,

He made them, high or lowly,
And ordered their estate.

Refrain

The purple headed mountains,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning
That brightens up the sky.

Refrain

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.

Refrain

The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water,
To gather every day.

Refrain

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.

Refrain

 

I hope that you make some handmade Christmas cards this year to share with those you love.  Consider using Beautiful Season rubberstamp set with its lovely, classic images and inspirational words.  And I hope you enjoy the lyrics to the All Things Bright and Beautiful hymn, a true classic for any season.  
Christmas is, above all, a truly Christian holiday.  Its beauty is a reflection of its roots:  the birth of Christ Jesus, the Savior of the world.  May your Christmas season be blessed with all things bright and beautiful.
