Our Daily Bread Designs May Release Blog Hop



Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Cathedral Window Wood, Sharing your Sorrow, Quote Collection 3, ODBD Custom Cathedral Window and Border Dies, Recipe Card and Tags Die
Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs May Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Dawn's Blog, you are in the right place, if not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog, and hop from there.  Be sure to leave comments along the way for your chance to win one of the THREE ODBD Gift Certificates good towards the purchase of stamps during the month of May!  The Hop will run from 8am EDT May 1 through 8pm EDT May 2. The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on May 3.

I thought the new Cathedral Window stamps and Custom Cathedral Window and Border Dies would make a beautiful Sympathy card.

Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Cathedral Window Wood, Sharing your Sorrow, Quote Collection 3, ODBD Custom Cathedral Window and Border Dies, Recipe Card and Tags Die
I used the Gelli Arts Plate and Distress Paints to created a background for the Cathedral Windows Wood stamp, stamping the window in Black Archival after paint had dried.  Next, I folded the Black card stock in half, then die cut and embossed the panel using the Cathedral Window and Border Die.  Then, I placed both the Window and Offset panels together, holding them in place with a piece of EZ Release Tape, and die cut and embossed the Window, this also left me with a small trim piece to use as an edge around the window.

I added a Black tag using the tag from the Recipe Card and Tags Die, cutting it slightly smaller to fit the sentiment from Sharing your Sorrow.  To embellish, I added Vintage Pink Seam Binding , Zva Creative Mini Roses in Pink and Blue, and a Mini Flourish from Cherry Lynn Designs, cut from Olive card stock.  The sentiment on the inside of the window is from Our Daily Bread Designs Quote Collection 3.
