ODBDSLC280 Christmas Ornament Blessings

Hi Friends! 


Just a reminder that you have until November 27, 2016 to join us for a chance to be spotlighted for the Shining the Light award or to win a $15 ODBD gift certificate (one random participant will be chosen).  To be spotlighted for the Shining the Light Award, you must use ODBD stamps (or stamps from our sister companies: North Coast Creations or Artistic Outpost). 

I designed this card with a few items from the ODBD November 2016 Special Holiday Release- Christmas Ornament Clear Stamp Set along with the coordinating Christmas Ornament Die plus the new Holly Jolly Collection 6x6 Paper Pad.

If you have not visited the rest of my ODBD Design Team Sisters’ blogs and checked out their fabulous projects yet, I hope you will find time to do so:

I am also linking this card to the Double D "Traditional Christmas" Challenge as well as the Word Art Wednesday #256-#257 "Anything Goes" Challenge.

To create this card:

Cut a few strips of the ODBD Holly Jolly Collection 6x6 Paper Pad (I used the holly swirl pattern for this card), apply vintage photo distress ink to two of the panels with a water brush, dry with a heat tool, distress the edges a bit and sew onto a piece of green cardstock with a zig zag stitch.

Mount the panel onto the white card base and add the split paper doily.

Ink the sentiment from the ODBD Christmas Ornament Clear Stamp Set with archival black ink, stamp onto a piece of green cardstock, create the banner by hand, distress the edges and mount onto the card front.

Stamp the poinsettia ornament image from the ODBD Christmas Ornament Clear Stamp Set with archival black ink onto white cardstock, color with distress inks along with a water brush as well as water based markers and add white highlights with an extra fine white paint pen.

Die cut the ornament with the ODBD Christmas Ornament Die and mount onto the card front with dimensional foam.

Add the red ribbon bow along with pearls to finish off the card.

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by!  We hope you will be able to join us for the ODBD Shining the Light ODBDSL280 Sketch  Challenge!  

Hugs and have a blessed week, my friends!
