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)

ODBD November 2014 Release

Hello friends!  Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs November Release!  Yikes…only two more months until Christmas…where has this year gone?  Oh my stars…not only is this month's shining release by Our Daily Bread Designs perfect for creating those last minute Christmas cards, but also wonderful for creating dazzling cards of encouragement throughout the year!  Get ready…you don't want to miss any of this star gazing experience!

Three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designers blogs to receive a $15 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps found in the "stamps column" of the website. You have until November 2, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on November 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

Creative Nugget:  The sentiment from His Birth was stamped on Neenah Solar Crest card stock and the panel embossed with swiss dots.  Strips of paper from the Christmas 2014 Paper Collection were stitched to Smokey Shadow card stock and a strip of embossed Solar Crest, stitched to a Beautiful Border, was popped up on top.  The card front was then mounted to a Smokey Shadow card base.  A Fancy Foliage flourish was mounted diagonally across the horizontal strip.  The largest star from the His Birth stamp set was white embossed on Kraft card stock and cut with the matching Sparkling Star Die.  An Action Wobble spring was used to attach the star to the front of the card, making it jiggle when touched…FUN!  A bit of twine was used to finish the card.

Creative Nugget:  This card was simply made by layering the die cuts from the Flourish Star Pattern Die…so easy, but so elegant! LOVE this die set!  The layers from base up are as follows…Neenah Solar Crest card base, Silver embossed die cut, Winter Paper Collection panel, Neenah flourish star pattern die cut, silver glitter paper die cut, Neenah star die cut, and finally the little shining star die cut.  The sentiment from the His Birth stamp set was silver embossed on a Spellbinders banner die cut.  A bow made from metallic silver thread was attached under the last star layer, and silver pearls were added to finish the card.  A copper version of the same card can be seen below.  It's hard to see in the photos, but these cards really sparkle in real life!
