Hello friends! I hope your July has been fabulous, and that you are managing to stay cool! It's been so hot here! I hate to even go outside when it's this hot!
Hard as it is to believe, July is almost over, and with August will come another new and awesome release at Our Daily Bread designs. I'm sharing a sneak peek with you today. This card is using a new set called Woodpecker, and also a new die, Trellis Strip. I love them both!
For this card I did something I rarely do. I started with a base of black, layered on a cream layer, and then a design paper layer from the ODBD Vintage Ephemera paper pack. I die cut the new Trellis Strip die from black, and then die cut my main panels, using the new ODBD Custom Pierced Squares dies, Pierced Rectangles, Double Stitched Rectangles, and the ODBD Squares dies. I embossed a cloud pattern on the cream layer and mounted my woodpecker on it. I had colored him with Copcis and hand cut. I also stamped and die cut the sentiment from the same set, and placed on the card using foam tape to pop it and the image up. My embellishment in the upper left corner was made with red twine, and several elements made with the Fancy Foliage Dies and the Lovely Leaves Dies. I added a brad gem to the top and the sentiment panel. I wanted to try to keep this card more masculine but I have to admit it's always difficult for me to do that! Sometimes you just want to add flowers and ribbons! Hopefully the twine and greenery will work for a guy card.
I hope you've enjoyed my sneak peek and that you will be back on Aug. 1 to see the entire release!

Have a wonderful weekend!
