ODBDSLC279 Christmas Note

Hi Friends! 

Welcome to the October 2016 Our Daily Bread Designs “Shining the Light” ODBDSLC279 Color Challenge!

I am still working on my Christmas cards (I cannot believe it is only a few months away :-)) and designed this card with the ODBD October 2016 New Release Christmas Note stamp set, ODBD Merry Christmas Border Die, patterned paper from the ODBD Christmas Card Collection 2016 Paper Pad as well as a few other previously released ODBD dies.

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:
Chris   ∙ Diana   ∙ Robin

To create this card:

Emboss a piece of white cardstock with the ODBD Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies, trim approximately one inch off on the right hand side, mount onto a piece of dark purple cardstock, add the 1” strip of purple pattern paper (from the new ODBD Christmas Card Collection 2016 6x6 Paper Pad) before adhering the entire panel to the white card base.

Die cut two pieces of white cardstock- one with the medium oval from the ODBD Vintage Borders die and another with the ODBD Beautiful Borders Dies and a piece of dark purple cardstock with the Merry Christmas Border Die.

Stamp the sentiment from the ODBD Christmas Note stamp set with archival black ink (I determined the position of the mailbox before stamping) onto the die cut oval and add the oval die cut piece to the card front.

I love the little bird on this mailbox- don't you?
Adhere the Merry Christmas Border   die cut along with the Beautiful Borders die cut to the card front and mount the thin strip of the border from the new ODBD Christmas Card Collection 2016 6x6 Paper Pad.

Stamp the mailbox image from the ODBD Christmas Note stamp set with archival black ink onto a piece of white cardstock, color with watercolor pencils along with a water brush and fussy-cut the image.

Using dimensional foam mount the Christmas Note mailbox image onto the card front.

Add "snow" with a white paint pen and shimmer with a clear glitter pen.

Adhere small pearls between the snowflake images on the thin blue snowflake paper strip (from the ODBD Christmas Card Collection 2016 6x6 Paper Pad) to finish off the card.
Thanks again for taking the time to stop by!  We hope you will be able to create a project and join us for the ODBD Shining the Light ODBDSLC279  Color Challenge!   You have until November 6, 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).
