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 the ODBD October Release

Hello friends!  Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs October Release.  The sets released this month are perfect for fall and Christmas creations.  I chose to use one of the new Christmas sets...Candy Cane...AND, are you ready for this...brand new Designer Papers by Our Daily Bread Designs!   Squeeeeee!!  These papers from the Christmas Paper Collection 2013 are gorgeous and coordinate with so many of the ODBD stamp sets!  
Here is my Candy Cane tri-fold:

Creative Nugget:  This is the front of the card.  The red striped paper was created with the new candy cane sets in mind, and the green gingham was used to give a traditional Christmas look and because I just happen to LOVE gingham!  These papers are so pretty and have a vintage look to them which gave my card a vintage flair.  The label was made with the Elegant Oval Die, the designer paper, and the greeting is from the Christmas Door stamp set.  But where is the candy cane?

When you open the card, the candy cane as well as the wonderful poem, also part of the Candy Cane stamp set, can be seen.  It was hard to get a good photo of the whole card, so here is another picture of just the inside panel:

The candy cane was colored twice with my favorite medium, Copic Markers.  One of the images was fussy cut and popped up on the other one for dimension.  The directions for this fold are on a new CD by Technique Junkies called Designer Paper Perfection, which is perfect for showing off those pretty designer papers!

Here are the supplies used from the ODBD Store:

For more gorgeous inspiration using the stamp sets and dies from the October Release, please be sure to visit the ODBD Blog.  The blog list of talented designers is also below for your convenience.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Don't forget to leave a little love behind as you visit the sweet ladies above!  Have a wonderful day!
