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 July Release

Hello friends!  Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs July Release.  I've been having so much fun with the pennant stamps and dies from this release!  For my pennant sample today I used a Double Display Card now available in packs of 6 at the Our Daily Bread Designs Store.

Here is the card closed:
Creative Nugget:  Green card stock and DP from the Blooming Garden Paper Collection were layered on each of the card panels. Since I wanted the pennants to face in, the border was stamped with the Pennant Alphabet and the little letters from the Pennant Swag Alphabet were punched with a 1/4" circle punch and layered on top.  The pennants and the green mats were cut with the matching Pennant Dies.  The Zinnia was cut with the Zinnia and Leaves Dies and was colored with distress inks.  Some Fancy Foliage die cuts were also added to complete the from of the card.

And here is the card opened up:
The Vintage Label Die cut was stamped with the Honeycomb Mini and layered onto a green mat.  Copic Markers were used to color the flower pot and tools from The Good Seed stamp set which was then fussy cut and popped up on the card.  The sentiment from the Be Joyful stamp set was mounted on a Vintage Flourish Pattern die cut.  The birthday pennant from the Pennant Swag 2 stamp set was cut with the matching Pennant Swag Die and hung across the top of the panel.  A few bees from the Zinnia stamp set were added to complete the garden theme of the card.  

Here are the new and some old favorite supplies from the 
Our Daily Bread Designs Store that were used to create this birthday card:
