A Look Back at the ODBD October Release


 Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs October Release, here is the first of two cards that I created using ODBD Peaceful Poinsettias, vintage flourish pattern and Fancy foilage dies. The links to these items are below. Click the corresponding photo. All of the paper and card stock on the front is pearlescent. In real life it sparkles and shimmers. This is such an easy project and the results are very satisfying! I have cut three different sizes of poinsettias and mixed them with plenty of swirls from the fancy foilage die. The bottom layer of the flowers is a die cut using the dark green card stock and the center was cut using a piece of gold vellum paper with a small rhinestone to finish it off. This is an A2 size card and can be mailed using one postage stamp and a quarter cut piece of card on the top for protection against the postal machines.


 I used the Vintage Flourish Pattern and Ornate Borders and Flower dies on the inside. The sentiment is from the Christmas Verses stamp set.

This center step card measures 5 1/2 inches high by 6 inches wide. I used the Merry Christmas stamp from the Christmas verses set and the rest of the decorations are die cuts. Can you tell that I'm lovin' all the die cut layers? It was fun and a nice channge of pace for me. 
If you wouold like to see other projects using the November release, check out my October posts from the 1st, 17th and 21st. I will have a few more projects coming over the next few days too!
