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 December Release

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs December Release!  I just love how versatile this release was…all of the stamp sets, sentiment sets, and dies coordinate perfectly.  In fact there are elements of each on my card sample for today.

Creative Nugget:  The Double Z-Fold card base was made with Whirlpool card stock by Bazzill following THIS TUTORIAL on Splitcoaststampers.  The first layer on the front of the card was stamped with the Ornate Background stamp in Lulu Lavender ink. Clear embossing the Ornate Background on Vintage Cream card stock and sponging over it with Dusty Concord Distress Ink created a contrasting layer which was stitched to the front of the card.  White embossing was used on the beautiful frame from the Ornate Borders & Flowers set and on the sentiment from the Ornate Borders Sentiments set.  The matching Ornate Borders & Flower Dies made cutting each layer easy, and I discovered in the process that four of the little corner dies fit perfectly inside the square on the frame.  Fancy Foliage Dies and pearls finish the front of the card. A seam binding bow was used to keep the card closed.
Here is what the card looks like when opened.  The sentiment on the inside is from the No Words stamp set and was stamped in Baja Breeze ink.  This stamp set is perfect for those times when there are no words to express what is in your heart.

Here are all of the materials available at the 
Our Daily Bread Designs Store used to make this card:
