Welcome to the December ODBD release!

 Hello friends!  Welcome to the ODBD December release!  I don't know where the time has gone but here we are... it's almost Christmas!  I hope you all are well along on your Christmas cards by now, and if so, this month's release will be a welcome change!  As always, there will be prizes!

Three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 Gift Code to the ODBD Website  just for commenting on the Design Team cards!  You have until December 2, 2016 at 9:00 p.m. EST to leave your comments on the Designers Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on December 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!
My first card today is a Book Fold card from the Fancy Folds Card Kits at ODBD.  I used the following  products on my "Praying" card : 


I stamped the sentiment with blue ink on white card stock.  I cut the sentiment panel with a Pierced Squares die, and added a Deco Border die to the top and bottom.  After adhering my design paper to the inside of the card, I adhered the sentiment panel to the left side of the book fold.  I stamped the praying hands with the same ink and die cut with the matching Praying Hands Die, and adhered that to the right side.  I used Bitty Borders to trim the book fold.  Below is the front of the card.  I used the same paper pack to die cut the new Praying Border die, which I love!  I made a white frame by cutting a Pierced Square and inside of that a Square die, then I adhered a Deco Border die to the top and bottom of the frame on the inside.  I adhered the Praying die to the outside.  To give the word die some strength, I die cut it from white card stock and adhered the design paper cut to that.  I popped up the frame onto a square of white card stock that I had embossed with a Sizzix folder.  I added Bitty borders to the top and bottom of the card and tiny blue half pearls.


For the card below, I had some fun with the bright bold papers in the Birthday Brights Paper Pad.  I die cut numerous banners from this paper using the new Pennant Flags Die set and the Double Stitched Pennant Flags set.  I stamped the sentiment from the new Pennant Flag Verses set with Baja Blue ink and adhered all of the flags with dimensional foam tape.  I used Bakers twine and tiny buttons and a Cuttlebug embossing folder and a Double Stitched Rectangle die to cut the embossed panel. 


To recap, here are the new products I used today:

I am so impressed with your Handle with Prayer Book Fold card! I have MS and often confined to bed for weeks. If I received this card I would be so encouraged!Not only because it is gorgeous, but I would know someone sacrificed their time to make it for mme and let me know they were praying for me. Thanks for sharing it!

Oh, Grace, this book fold card is AMAZING! What perfect work and gorgeous colors (yes, my favorite color is blue...hehe). And I love the scallop trim. Truly a gorgeous card and one that will encourage someone for sure. And what a beautiful front with the "praying" die. Stunning with the new deco border. Wow, I love the second card with the beautiful pennants and happy paper! I love the colors and how you've strung the pennants across the embossed layer. Truly a beautiful and lovely card, precious friend! It's so wonderful to see you making beautiful cards again, and I continue to pray that God will strengthen you and heal you completely. With tender hugs and love, precious friend! xoxo
