Joys of the Season

Hi Friends! 

Today I am sharing another quick card featuring the brand new Our Daily Bread Designs stamp set, Joys of the Season along with the new Merry Christmas Border Die from the ODBD October 2016 Release.

In addition to the gorgeous galleries at the challenge sites, if you have not had a chance to stop by the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog yet, I encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from my Design Team “Sisters” (affectionately known as the “Breadbasket” or “Breadsticks”).

To create this card:

Stamp the tree image from the ODBD Joys of the Season using embossing ink onto a piece of the ODBD Christmas Collection 2014 6x6 Paper Pad and heat emboss with silver embossing powder.

Distress the edges of the paper, add the thin strip of the ODBD Christmas Collection 2014 6x6 Paper Pad  (I distressed the pink layer a bit as well), adhere the panel onto rose cardstock, distress the edges once more and mount the entire panel onto the white card base.

Die cut a piece of silver foil and white cardstock using the ODBD Merry Christmas Border Die, split the words on the die (in order to fit the layout), layer with the white a bit offset to the right and mount onto the card front.

It is so difficult for me to photograph silver embossing and foil-
side view to try to capture some of the silver elements :-)
Use a silver metallic pen to color the bows and cords on the ornaments and use a clear glitter pen to add glitter to the poinsettias on the ornaments as well as around the edges (the clear glitter is difficult to see in the photo but did seem to give the ornaments a bit more dimension). 

Die cut the ODBD Mini Bow Die from silver foil paper, assemble the bow and adhere to the card front (I used the bow versus the banner in the sketch) :-).

Add the rhinestones to the ornaments as well as the iced rhinestone embellishment to the center of the bow to finish off the card.

Quick and easy- I love the pinks and the silver! Reminds me of the frosted artificial trees from the late 60’s – oops! Now I am starting to "date" myself :-)!!

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- I hope you have a wonderful week, my friends!
