I think this photo inspired most of the challenge team to use our new Sunburst Background Dies!!! I have been amazed at how many different ways the ODBD Design Teams have been using this die!!! They are just so creative and I have been wowed!!!
I began my project by cutting the sunburst on glossy card stock and then sponging different shades of ink to color the die cut. I sprayed it with a clear coat of sealer and began my search for the landscape. I settled on this pond and woodland scene from ODBD With Deepest Sympathy stamp set and the use of theWindow Dies. I colored the image with alcohol markers and cut away the sky so that I could stack the image on the sunburst. I place the window over the stack and it looked great but I wanted more depth. I took the cattails stamp from the ODBD With Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set and added another layer to the picture. There are the small cattail in the distance of the main image and then I used the larger cattail up close to the window. I used dimensional foam to help give me the depth.
Once I had the layered window together, I whipped out the new ODBD Vintage Ephemera Collection Papers because they are perfect for masculine cards! I then stamped out the sentiment with the ODBD World's Greatest stamp set and layered it on top of a banner that I folded. I cut a strip the width of the small fishtail banner and placed that die on each end of the strip. I only wanted to cut just the fishtail portion of the die while leaving a long strip that I could fold. I used dimensional tape between the folds of the banner for added depth and layered a border under it from the ODBD Antique Labels and Border Dies. Next came a bit of sponging for contrast and a couple of vintage brads. Then I mounted it all onto a 96# Bristol paper card base.
I used the paper collection on the inside too! Nothing fancy, it's just enough to finish things off nicely. I layered up several of the papers and even used the negative of the Antique Labels and Border die which I had used on the front. Yes, I used the scraps! The center medallion was made by stamping the Crocheted Circle Plain Stamp on the dotted paper from the collection and was cut with the matching die. I then took a sentiment from the Life is a Gift Stamp Set and cut it out using the smallest circle from the ODBD Circle Ornaments Dies. I thought this made the perfect sentiment for a Father's Day card!!! I layered those two pieces together to finish off the inside.
