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 Special Holiday Release

Hello Friends!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs Special Holiday Release…more goodies for your Christmas crafting!  Just check out these gorgeous creations by the Breadstick Designers!

The new Christmas Ornament stamp set and coordinating Ornament Die were used to create both of my samples.

Creative Nugget:  The Snowflake Border Background was white embossed and sponged on Neenah card stock.  The second layer of the card was cut with the Snowflake Sky Die and embossed with clear sparkle embossing powder which really shimmers in real life!  The Christmas Ornament was colored with Copic Markers and cut with the Ornament Die.  Metallic thread was used to hang the ornament and a tag cut with a Mini Tag Die and a Circle Die was tied to the ornament.  A few Bitty Sparkles were added to finish the card.

A new fold found on Pinterest was the inspiration for my second sample.

Creative Nugget:  The four panels on this card gave plenty of space to use many of the new products released this month by Our Daily Bread Designs.  All of the panels were layered with papers from the new Holly Jolly Collection…LOVE!  The split sentiments from the Christmas Ornament set were cut with Rectangle Dies and Filigree Frames Dies.  A few Snow Crystals accent the front of the card.

The Peace Border was cut several times and layered for dimension.  A few sparkly Snow Crystals were hung from the border on this second panel.

The Christmas Ornament was colored with Copic Markers and cut with the coordinating Ornament Die.  Prills were used in the center of the poinsettia and greenery cut with Lovely Leaves Dies and a metallic thread bow were added.

Panel four was decorated with a sentiment from the Merry & Bright stamp set released at the beginning of the month.  The Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and the Filigree Frames Dies were used to frame the sentiment.  Prills were added to the flourishes on the frame to finish the card.


The following new products from the Our Daily Bread Designs Store were used to create these projects:
