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)

A Look Back at ODBD August Release

Hello sweet friends!  Today we are taking a look back at  
Our Daily Bread Designs August Release.  
There are so many garden goodies to choose from this month, so I chose images from two of the new stamp sets for my sample...Strawberries and Garden Mini.
Creative Nugget:  The recipe card was cut using the Recipe and Tags Dies, a Spellbinders Marvelous Square frame was cut from the top and from a piece of Real Red card stock, and the Gingham Background was white embossed on the card.  The Strawberries were stamped on a Square Nestie and colored with Copic Markers and a Signo White Gel Pen was used to highlight the seeds on the berries.  The sentiment was stamped on half of a doily and attached under the strawberry frame.  The recipe card was matted with Smokey Shadow and attached to a My Mind'e Eye panel which was stitched to Smokey Shadow and mounted to a Solar Crest card base.  Butter Cream Baker's Twine was tied around the recipe card and a bow attached.  Some strawberries from the Garden Mini set were colored and fussy cut and added to the card along with some Fancy Foliage.  A few pearls colored to match the strawberries were added in the corner to finish the card!

Here are the materials used that are available at the 
Our Daily Bread Designs Store:
