ODBDSLC256 Thank You

Hello Friends!

Today starts off the brand new ODBDSLC256 Shining the Light “Ink Up or Emboss Your Own Background” Challenge and although it may seem difficult to not incorporate designer paper in your project but I love using stamps to create my own “designer” paper!

I am also incorporating the Splitcoaststampers' Ways To Use It WT540 "Going on a Picnic" Challenge :-)

To create this card: 

Stamp the background stamp, Chalkboard Vine Background using taupe ink onto the taupe cardstock, trim and mount onto white cardstock, trim once more and stamp onto the dark brown card base.

  ODBD Stamps- Thank You, Chalkboard Vine Background ;
ODBD Dies- Layered Lacey Square Dies , Stitched Ovals Dies, Oval Dies
Stamp the Thank You picnic basket image using a waterproof black ink onto white cardstock and color using water based markers with a water brush. 

Cut the picnic basket image out using the Stitched Ovals Dies and mount onto an oval cut with the Ovals Dies from dark brown cardstock.

Add the 5/8” Dark Chocolate Satin Ribbon and triple ribbon bow to an embossed kraft layer and mount onto the square from the Layered Lacey Square Dies.

Stamp the verse from Thank You using a waterproof ink onto white cardstock, cut using the Stitched Ovals Dies, mount onto an oval cut with the Ovals Dies from dark brown cardstock.

Mount the layers using foam dimensionals and add a few pearls to finish off the card.


I love designing alongside the talented ODBD Design Team and hope you will check out my DT sisters:

ChrisDiana, Paula, and Robin.

Your card is soooo pretty Julie! I love that big brown ribbon and the pretty picnic basket scene (I don't have that one!) I love the verse underneath as well! What a lovely card to give to someone who is going through "it"! Beautiful! I know that verse speaks to your heart! Hope all are doing well dear friend!
