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)

Taking a Look Back at ODBD March 2014 Release

Hello friends!  Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs March Release.  I've been having a lot of fun with the new stamps released this month.  For my sample today, I used the Bee Happy and Honeycomb Mini stamps along with the Daisy Chain Die.

Creative Nugget:  The main panel of this Modified Tri-Shutter card was stamped with the beehive image from the Bee Happy stamp set and colored with Copic Markers.  The Honeycomb Mini was stamped in each corner using distress ink.  The panel was stitched to More Mustard card stock and several bees were cut with the Zinnia & Leaves Dies and added.

Here is the card opened up:

The panels of the card were covered with Vintage Cream card stock and designer paper from the Blooming Garden Paper Collection.  The side panels looked a little plain to me, so I colored some modeling paste with distress ink and used the Daisy Chain Die as a stencil to give them some texture.  The Fancy Foliage Die was added along with several more bees and some pearls to finish the card.

Several items available from the 
Our Daily Bread Designs Store 
were used to make this card.

For more beautiful inspiration using the March Release, be sure to visit the ODBD Blog!  To see the details for each card be sure to visit my talented Design Team Sisters...their blog links are listed below for your convenience!
