A Look Back at ODBD's September Mid Month Release

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs' September Mid Month Release. Here is the card I created using the Beauty stamp set, Pretty Posies Die and Leafy Edged Borders Die.  For more inspiration using the September Mid Month Release be sure to visit the ODBD Blog.


 I started with an ecru card stock base measuring 5.5 x 4.25 inches and added a lovely design paper pattern from ODBD's Soulful Stitches Paper Collection.  I used the new Leafy Edged Borders Die to create my DP, ecru CS and gold poster board layers.  I cut out multiple flower layers from ecru card stock and inked the centers with a soft yellow distress ink and the edges with a light pink ink.  After inking, I spritzed the flowers lightly with water and pinched each petal between my fingertips for depth.  After drying, I glued layers together, staggering each to overlap and finished the flower with a cluster of pearls glued in the center.  I cut my leaves out of ecru card stock also and inked it up with light green ink.  I used a bit of wire (yes, wire) to thread my lace on and twisted the ends together to make the lace collar.  I added the flower and leaves to the lace with hot glue.  **Creative tip**  I used ODBD's Circle Ornaments Die to cut a circular base to mount the lace collar and flower on.  After it dried, I added the entire embellishment to my card.    I stamped my sentiment on a bit of ecru paper and finished it up with ODBD's Pennants Die.

So here's a close up of the blossom...
