A Look Back at ODBD's November Release

Happy Friday!  Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs' November Release.  It's hard to believe the month is nearly over!  Thanksgiving will be here soon and then Christmas!  In honor of our Savior's birth, I created a card using the Poinsettia Wreath  stamp and coordinating Poinsettia Wreath Die.


For more inspiration using the November Release be sure to visit the ODBD Blog.
 
Here are the products I used today...
 
Poinsettia Wreath stamp set
 

and coordinating

 
And if you look closely you will find an older release,
 
 
 
First I created my card base using a shaped die.  I then used my Quatrefoil Pattern Die to cut out another layer and used the shaped die to create a lattice layer.  If you look closely you will see I placed tiny adhesive pearls at the center of each quatrefoil.  I used the same shaped die that created the base (in two graduated sizes) to create a frame and added it with dimensional foam to the top.  I stamped the sentiment (black ink) on white card stock and used a label shaped die to create the sentiment panel.  I stamped the image on Copic compatible paper before coloring the greenery with a combo of YG17 and YG67.  I used R24 and R27 for the poinsettias and a mixture of G24 and Y17 for the centers.  After coloring, I used the coordinating die to cut out the image and added it (slightly above the top card edge) with dimensional foam.  I like how it elongates the card by placing it a bit off the page.  So what do you think?  
 
If you haven't had a chance to see what the other "Sticks" have created please check out the links below!  They are one talented group of God fearing ladies!  {{hugs}}
