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)

Looking Back at the ODBD February Release

Hello friends!  Today we are revisiting the fabulous Our Daily Bread Designs February Release.  This release was just brimming with love and lots of gorgeous hearts.  Here's a sample made with just a few of them!

Creative Nugget:  The front of the card was created by stitching and piercing together several new designer papers from the beautiful Heart & Soul Paper Collection.  One of the Beautiful Border Dies was cut twice and layered with a strip of DP to make the scalloped border.  The shaker part of the card was created by stamping the Bless Your Heart on Select White card stock and cutting it with the scalloped Ornate Heart Die.  A sentiment from the set was also stamped on this piece.  The frame was cut using two of the Ornate Heart Dies nested together.  The smallest of the heart dies was used to make the hearts inside the shaker, and little pearls were added to some of them.  A piece of acetate was attached to the back of the scalloped frame.  A double layer of mounting tape was used to attach the frame to the stamped heart with the little hearts inside.  A bow and one of the little hearts finish the card.

These materials from the 
Our Daily Bread Designs Store 
were used to make this card:
