Welcome to the ODBD Oct. New Release!

ODBD dies: Adore Him, Leafy Edged Borders, Pennant dies, designed by Grace Nywening

Now on to my cards for today.  For the first card above, I used the gorgeous new  Adore Him Die.  I am soooo in love with this die!  I cut out 2 - one from silver mirrored paper and one from Night of Navy card stock.  I adhered them together just slightly offset for a shadow effect.  To create my "scroll",  I used the Leafy Edged borders and cut white card stock on two sides, trimmed the top and bottom to be at an appropriate angle for my card, and then I used the flag pole die from the Pennant Die set, cut off the knob on the end, and hand embossed a ridge instead, which matches the ridge that is embossed by the die on the rest of the pole.  I used tiny silver brads and a silver cord for simple embellishments.  

To construct the card from the bottom up, I used Neenah Solar Crest 140 lb white card for the base.  Next I used the BoHo Background Die to cut silver mirrored paper.  This gives a pretty embossed edge to the silver paper, and on it I matted a Night of Navy layer which I embossed with a Darice snowflake embossing folder.  I adhered my "scroll" using dimensional foam, and added the cording.  This was really simple and lays quite flat, but I love how it came out, and I hope you do too!




ODBD products: Elegant Embellishments stamps and dies, Flourished Alphabet set, leafy edged border dies, circle ornaments dies, designed by Grace Nywening

For my second card, I used  the new Elegant Embellishment stamp set, and the matching Elegant Embellishments Dies, as well as the beautiful Flourished Alphabet set.  I stamped the letters to spell "Noel" down the side of the card using Midnight Muse ink, and then I cut the edge with a Leafy Edged Border die, cutting the white and then another from Midnight Muse.  I stamped two of the ornaments in the Elegant Embellishment stamp set with the same ink, and die cut with the matching dies.  I cut two paper bows from the Circle Ornaments die set, and I "hung" my ornaments with some silver cord.  My base is Midnight Muse, and then a layer of white card stock which is embossed with a Cuttlebug flourished holly embossing folder.  I adhered the paper bows to the ornaments, and finished it off with tiny silver half pearls from Hobby Lobby.  This again makes a pretty flat card and I like the clean presentation.  

To re-cap, here are the NEW products I used today:

Grace, you always slam it out of the park with your creations! Your beautiful silver and blue is just gorgeous! Your first card is created so beautifully looking like an unrolled scroll and your second with all the white and curved border, the touches of silver on the letters and beautiful holly embossing is fantastic! So lovely my dear friend!

The silver and navy are a great combination. The first card has a layout that I really like. It shows off the embossing and the die. The second card is one of those cards you hate but love to give away. The embossing is beautiful. I love the silver cord and those little silver embellishments that you added to the word NOEL. Absolutely beautiful.

Berina RGA said...

Beautiful cards!! Love the first card!! The die cut sentiment is very beautiful!
