Miracle of Christmas - Our Daily Bread Designs November Pre-Order Special

Thanks for stopping by!  Today is a special blog post, as myself and some of the other ODBD Design Team Members are sharing projects created with the products available in the November 2016 Pre-Order Bundles!

The Pre-Order Bundles can be ordered from Our Daily Bread Designs website through October 31, 2016 , and will begin shipping November 1st or sooner! Please note that the individual products from the November 2016 Release will not be available for purchase until November 1st! 

There are THREE ODBD Pre-Order Bundles for the November Release and each money saving pre-order bundle also includes a FREE Gift!  You can see all the Pre-Order Bundles HERE on the ODBD Blog.  

Snowflakes are Kisses from Heaven, and my card features the new beautiful Snow Crystals and Snowflake Sky die sets, Christmas Lights stamp set and pretty Pink/White snowflake paper from the Snowflake Season Paper Collection.  All of these products can be purchased in the Special November 2016 Bread Basket Pre-Order.  My card also uses additional ODBD Custom Dies and the Joys of Season stamp set (see the full supply list below).

The beautiful snowflake dies and background die will make a wonderful addition to your Holiday or Winter themed cards!

I used markers to ink the tree from Joys of the Season, stamping it on White card stock.  I placed the Stitched Oval die over the rubber, so I knew how far down to color so that the bottom of the tree wouldn't end up in the embossed area of the die cut panel, then die cut and embossed using the Stitched Ovals die, layering onto an Oval and Ornate Oval panel.

Card Stock - Ruby Red, White

Joys of the Season

Thanks for stopping by!  Today, members of the ODBD Design Team are sharing new inspiration with the products from the October Release.

I used the Joys of the Season set from the October Release along with pattern paper from the Christmas Card Collection 2016 and previously released ODBD Dies to create my card (see full supply list below).

Keeping with my love for layers, I went with a Clean and Layered look.  

I placed the Vintage Label die over the rubber so that I knew how far to color with my markers so that the tree wouldn't extend too much into the embossed area of the die cut panel.  Then I cut the "snow" using one of the dies in the Leafy Edged Borders die set, placed those on my stamped tree, and die cut the entire piece using the Vintage Label Die.  To embellish the tree and snow, I added Dry Glitter using a Glue Pen.
