You Make Me Happy In My Heart!


Hello friends!  Today on the ODBD Blog, we are taking a look back at the June release at Our Daily Bread designs.  This is a card I made using the new set, You Bless Me So.  I used the new Birthday Brights Paper Pad, and the following dies:  Bitty Borders, Mini Stitched Hearts, Pierced Rectangles, Double Stitched Rectangles, Pierced Circles, Double Stitched Circles, Lavish Layers, Recipe Card & Tags Dies,  and Ornate Heart Dies.  Links provided below.

I started by embossing the largest Pierced Rectangle die on my white panel, then die cutting a blue panel from the Birthday Brights Paper Pad, and a plaid panel from the same paper pad with a Lavish Layers Die.  I die cut just a heart frame from the Ornate Heart Dies set, and wrapped that around my plaid panel in the corner.  I stamped the sentiment and smiley face from the You Bless Me So stamp/die set and die cut the sentiment with a Pennant die, and the smiley face with a Mini Hearts die.  I die cut the "You" word and adhered it to the top corner of my pennant.  I added  my various circles as mats for the smiley face, and simply put it all together.  While this isn't my usual style, I have had fun playing with this fun bright paper!  It's light hearted and happy, and it just makes me smile! 

Here are the  links to the ODBD  I used on this card:
