Our Daily Bread Designs- Christmas Card Collection 2016
Today at the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Blog, we are sharing inspiration from the ODBD October 2016 Release! I have designed two more cards using the ODBD Christmas Card Collection 2016 6x6 Paper Pad along with the ODBD Peace Border Die.
I did incorporate a few other ODBD Dies from previous releases into the designs but this time, I did not use any stamps- just the ODBD Christmas Card Collection 2016 6x6Paper Pad images :-)
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 the Merry Christmas Mailbox card:
Die cut and emboss the following from white cardstock using:
1). A 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece using the ODBD Vintage Pattern Flourish Dies
2). The 2nd largest die from the ODBD Vintage Borders Dies
From Dark Purple Cardstock using:
1). ODBD Vintage Labels Dies- size to fit within the ODBD Vintage Borders Dies frame cut from white cardstock in the step #2 above
3). ODBD Ornate Ovals Dies- 2nd to the smallest die
From the ODBD Christmas Card 2016 Collection 6x6 Paper Pad using:
1). The mailbox image with the ODBD Stitched Oval Dies.
2). The Merry Christmas sentiment with the ODBD Ovals Dies (to fit the Ornate Ovals frame cut from dark purple cardstock cut in stap #3 above).
Layer the pieces together onto the dark purple card base and finish off the card with the rhinestone embellishment in the middle of the bow.
To create the Peace Card:
Trim the Holy Night image from the ODBD Christmas Card 2016 Collection 6x6 Paper Pad, mount onto a rectangle of white cardstock (die cut and embossed with the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies), mount onto a piece of black cardstock trimmed close to the die cut and mount the entire panel onto the white card base.
Die cut and emboss the ODBD Peace Border Die from white cardstock and adhere to the top of the card.
Die cut and emboss the ODBD Shining Star Die from silver foil paper, mount onto the card front with dimensional foam and add the rhinestones to the star centers.
Use a clear glitter pen to add glitter to the light from the stars to finish off the card.
Thanks again for taking the time to stop by and I hope I have inspired you to start on your Christmas cards for either this year (or if you are already finished for this year, get a head start on next year).
Hugs and have a blessed weekend, my friends!
