For the card above, I used the Home Sweet Home set for my sentiment. I used the new ODBD Custom Window Dies, Shutter and Awning Dies, and Flower Box Fillers. I also used Antique Labels and Border Die set to cut the sentiment with, and Fancy Foliage. I used the Butterfly and Bugs stamp to stamp and heat emboss the butterfly on vellum, and cut it with the ODBD Custom Butterfly Dies & Bugs Die. The design paper is the ODBD Shabby Rose Paper Collection.
I wanted a shabby chic feel so the soft Shabby rose paper was the perfect starting point. I distressed it with my scissors and Distress Ink in Antique Linen. I used 140 lb Neenah Solar White for my base and all the die cuts, sponging them with Antique Linen. To color the flowers and leaves I simply sponged them with distress inks. I layered my window up with a couple of cuts to give dimension, and I added some soft pink vellum behind the panes. I just LOVE the little flower box fillers! They emboss beautifully and really look so perky in any scene you want to add them to! I added some white lace to the bottom and adhered the sentiment to that with a foam dimensional tape. I added a could little whisps of gauze to my corner bouquets and decided that was enough. I love the shabby feel. It reminds me of my Grandmother's farm house!
My next card is totally different. I used a tent fold for my card, and the ODBD Chalkboard Collection and Blushing Rose Collection for my design paper, on a base of Neenah Solar White.
I stamped the image from Fragrance set twice, colored with Copics, and fussy cut them. I used the ODBD Custom Layered Lacy Squares to cut my window and sentiment panel. I put the sentiment from Blossom on the inside of the card with foam dimensionals so that when the card is closed it peeks through the window a bit.
The card is 4 3/4" square. To make it you simply cut your card the size you want it, and then cut another piece of card stock the width of the card base x 4" high. You score the 4" piece at 1", 2" and 3" and fold in a mountain/valley fold. You adhere it to the inside of the card with the two cut edges facing up and the middle fold facing up. (The 2 side "valley" folds face down). You can see a tutorial for this fold HERE.
To recap, here are the new ODBD products used today:
