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)

Welcome to the ODBD December 2018 Release

Hello, friends!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs December 2018 Release.  The stamp sets being release this month feature scenes from the great outdoors and are perfect for your wintery and masculine card making needs. The new Vintage Label Flip Card with Layers Dies and Double Pierced Vintage Labels Dies are wonderful for matting the images and and help to make creating a fancy fold card a snap!

My first sample was made with the new Peaceful Wishes stamp set and the Peace & Joy Die

Creative Nugget:  The snow covered trees from the Peaceful Wishes stamp set were colored with Copic Markers on a Pierced Rectangle cut panel and sprinkled with glittery Frosting Powder for lots of sparkle.  The Peace & Joy Die was used to cut the words from the panel after the trees were colored.  The words were stacked five times for dimension and popped back into the panel.  A few Snow Crystals Dies were used to cut snowflakes which were covered with the Frosting Powder and added to the scene to finish the card.

My second sample was made with the new Seek Me stamp set and the Vintage Label Flip Fold Card with Layers Dies

Creative Nugget:  The Vintage Label Flip Fold Card with Layers Dies were used to cut the card base from green card stock and the layers from paper in the Christmas Collection 2017 Paper Pad.  Green and blue Oxide Inks were sponged onto a mixed media panel and the trees from the Seek Me stamp set were stamped and white embossed on the panel which was then splattered with watered down acrylic paint.  The panel was cut with a Double Pierced Vintage Label Die and mounted onto the flip card.  The sentiment was white embossed.

The same steps were followed for the inside of the flip panel.  A smaller Double Pierced Vintage Label Die was used to cut the center from the scene and the sentiment white embossed over stamped images.  The small panel was mounted to a green layer cut with a Vintage Label Die and this was popped back onto the flip card.  The Trees & Deer Dies were used to add accents to the inside of the card.

Close up views of the stamped scenes can be seen above.

These new products from the Our Daily Bread Designs Store were used to create the cards above...

Absolutely stunning! - Both! I love the quiet and peaceful landscape of the first card and these big cut-out letters, which go perfectly with the magnificent winter scene. I also like the colors, the papers and the shapes you used on the second card. - Two real eye-catchers!!
Thank you for joining our challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.
I wish you a Happy New Year!
