A Look Back at Our Daily Bread Designs' December Release

  Happy Friday!  Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs' December release.  If you haven't picked up a gift for the stamper on your list and/or someone needs to pick up something for you...  look no further!  These sets are designed to work together to create beautiful cards for all occasions!  And speaking of occasions...  it's hard to believe the month is nearly over!  Today's card will go to a dear friend who is struggling.  She needs a bit of encouragement and I pray this will do the trick!
 
 
and some of the products I used...

Now for the layers....  I used a Spellbinder die and embossing folder to create my card base.  I cut 4 dies from the Ornate Borders and Flower set, split them in half and layered them under another fancy die (in white card stock).  I stamped the border image in a soft green and the sentiment in black before using the coordinating die to cut and emboss it.  I garnished the top with mulberry roses and white vines from the foliage die along with greenery from that same set.  

If you haven't had a chance to see what the other "Sticks" have created please check out the links below!  {{hugs}}
