And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

ODBDSLC156 ODBD Stamps and Dies

Hello friends!  Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day yesterday!  It's time for a new Shining the Light Challenge and I thought I would take this opportunity to honor all those who have and are now serving in our military.
This week's challenge is:
Our Daily Bread Designs and Dies
Use an Our Daily Bread Designs stamp and any dies.

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a PRIZE, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs Store!!  Entries for the prize must be submitted by Sunday, June 2 at 8 p.m. EST.  One random winner will be chosen and announced with the next challenge.

As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing three or more of our participants for the Shining the Light Award.  In order to qualify for this award, you must use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, June 2 at 8 p.m. EST.  If you upload your creation to Splitcoaststampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC152.  When creating your posts on blogs, please include a link to the challenge.  Thanks you!  We love seeing your creations!

Here is my card for this week's challenge:

Creative Nugget:  I decided to try a "Lever Card" after finding THIS tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.  The layers are modified as I wanted to have a double matt on each of the panels.  A combination of Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy, and Old Town Tavern papers by The Paper Loft was used to decorate each panel.  The soldier image from Not Forgotten was stamped twice on Soft Stone card stock...once in Cherry Cobbler, and once in Night of Navy.  The cherry parts were then cut and pieced on the navy layer.  The Fence Die was cut from Kraft card stock and attached to the bottom of the top layer.  I found some ancient chipboard stars in my stash and covered them with matching DP to be attached on either side of the soldier image.  Some seam binding was died and tied around the frame.   The sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy and cut with an Antique Labels & Border Die. This was trimmed by hand so it could be layered on a navy Antique Label.  

The Antique Border was added to the third panel.  A tag using one of the other sentiments from the Not Forgotten stamp set and the Recipe Card & Tags Die was mounted on the last panel to finish the card.

Here are the Our Daily Bread Designs supplies used to make this card:
