ODBDSLC286 Seeds of Knowledge



Hi Friends! 


I just love this new release- the perfect combination of stamps and dies to show appreciation for that special teacher(s) in your life. 


I decided to create a card using the new stamp set, Seeds of Knowledge with several custom dies and the Birthday Brights Paper Collection.  




We hope you will take the time to check out the rest of my ODBD Design Team Sisters’ blogs and see their gorgeous projects:

Chris   ∙ Diana   ∙ Robin

Don’t forget- you have until June 4, 2017 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 create this card:

1). Ink the Seeds of Knowledge sentiment with embossing ink onto black cardstock and heat emboss with white embossing powder.  Trim the panel and set aside.

2). Die cut and emboss pieces of silver foil with the Clipboard Set Dies for the ruler, scissors, clip, magnifying glass.  Die cut and emboss a piece of Birthday Brights paper with the Clipboard Set Dies (for the clipboard).

3). Die cut and emboss a piece of Birthday Brights paper with the Pierced Rectangles Dies, mount onto a piece of black cardstock and mount onto the white card base.

4). Mount the sentiment onto the clipboard die cut, add the clip (I used a piece of foam under the clip to raise it up a bit) and adhere to the card front.  Add the paper clip die cut to the side.

5). Cut a rectangle piece of Birthday Brights paper for the vertical panel on the side, add the silver foil clip and A+ die cut (die cut using the A+ Apples Dies from black cardstock). 

6). Stamp the apple from Seeds of Knowledge with archival black ink, color with watercolor pencils, die cut and emboss using the Teacher’s Apples Dies,  Use an extra fine white paint pen to add the highlight and once dry, mount onto the card front with dimensional foam.

7). Stamp the “Thank You” sentiment from the Seeds of Knowledge stamp set with archival black ink onto white cardstock, die cut with Circles Dies, and adhere behind the magnifying glass die cut.  Add crystal glaze in the center to mimic glass but allow it to thoroughly dry before mounting onto the card front (Note to Self- remember to let it dry! I touched mine too soon and smudged it a bit but added more glaze to try to fix it :-)).
  
8). Die cut and emboss a piece of Birthday Brights paper using the Small Bow Dies,  assemble the bow and add to the magnifying glass. 

9). Add a few silver sequins around the sentiment to finish off the card.
  
Thanks again for taking the time to stop by!  I hope I have inspired you to create a "thank you" card and we would love for you to join us for the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light ODBDSLC286 “Just Say Thanks” Challenge!

Hugs and I hope you have a wonderful week, sweet friends!

Oh, Julie, what a beautiful set of cards. I agree with all Robin and Chris said, and it's amazing how realistic the dies are with the metallic card stock. And what a really precious Scripture verse on the clipboard. Stunning! Hugs and love! xoxo
