Taking a Look Back at the May Release!


Our Daily Bread designs stamps, Glory, Carried to Heaven, ODBD Vintage Label Dies, Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies, Fancy Foliage Dies, designed by Grace Nywening

Hello sweet friends!  I hope you are all doing well and enjoying your week!

Today, the DT is taking a look back at the May Our Daily Bread designs release!  To see all the creations, you can visit the ODBD Blog.  To learn all the details about each designer's creation please visit each one as linked below.

Now for the details on my card:
I used the beautiful morning glory image from Glory, and the sentiment from Carried to Heaven.    I also used  the ODBD Custom Dies:  Vintage Label Dies, Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies, and Fancy Foliage Dies.

I decided I wanted my card front have a light and airy filagree feel, so I cut the Vintage Flourish Pattern Die, and then created a hinge that fits within the straight top part of the die by cutting the back of my card at an A2 size, PLUS about 1/4" along the long edge. I  scored at 1/4" and folded and burnished the card.  I trimmed off any excess that showed below the frame, and then adhered with tacky tape to the back of the Vintage Flourish Pattern Die.  Now I have a pretty see through design for my card front. I then triple stamped my image on three different sizes of the Vintage Label Dies, colored my image, and stamped the sentiment on the smallest die cut.  I lightly sponged the edges. Next,  I popped each layer up and then added some of the flourishes from the Fancy Foliage Die set.   My only other embellishment is a little white and pink bow.  I like how this came out.  I decided that I will put my message on another Vintage Label die on the inside, set right behind the front one so you don't see my writing  from the front of the card. 



I hope you enjoyed my project, and that you'll take a few minutes to visit my DT sisters and be inspired by their awesome work!
