The Whole Earth is Full of His Glory Tri-Fold sneak peek


 Hello friends!  I hope you are enjoying your day!

Today  am  giving you a sneak peek at fun stamps and dies  being released tomorrow at ODBD!    This is a tri-fold, and each layer has a circle cut out of it, making a window to the next layer.  The new stamps and dies from the November's release that I have used are,  Custom Circle Ornament Dies, going from largest to smallest and a sentiment from The Earth set.   I also used the brand new and available NOW  ODBD Christmas Paper Collection 2013 designer papers, as well as the ODBD Fancy Foliage Dies.


 I started with a 5.5 x 12" piece of Bazzill card stock, scoring at 4" and 8".  I folded each side toward the inside, trimmed off the corners of the top layer, and then started laying out my papers and decided where I wanted my circle window openings.  I chose several different papers from the Christmas Paper Collection 2013, and then cut using the ODBD Custom Circle Ornaments Dies.  The inside circle with the sentiment stamped on it is actually the cut away from layer two, cut again with the next smaller circle.  The sentiment is stamped with Memento ink.  I trimmed the card with a couple sprigs of greenery cut with the ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage die set, and a pretty poinsettia from Hobby Lobby.  I added a photo turn to hold the card closed before adhering the dp on the back side so that the brad back does not show.

Here is a look at it after you open the first fold. 


Here it is open all the way.  The inside sentiment is popped up on dimensionals.


I am submitting this to Word Art Wednesday where it's always anything goes with a Scripture or encouraging sentiment, and a free digi is given.  I am also entering it in this week's Shining the Light Challenge which is to NOT use ribbon or lace.

I hope you'll be back tomorrow to see the full ODBD release!

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!  I love hearing from you!
