Friends are like Flowers - Our Daily Bread Designs March Release


Welcome to the New Release post showcasing projects from Our Daily Bread Designs March Release!  You can see all of the March Releases here.  Continue reading below to find out how you can win a $25 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store good towards the purchase of ODBD stamps.

I created two cards using the new Zinnia stamp set along with the ODBD Custom Zinnia and Leaves Die, ODBD Blooming Garden Paper Collection, ODBD Custom Fancy Foilage Die and ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies.

My first card features a Fancy Fold, and when folded the card fits into a standard A2 size envelope.



To create the Fancy Fold, I cut my card stock at 9-1/2" x 4-1/4", scoring at 2-3/4", 3-3/4", 5-3/4" and 6-3/4".  The ends were die cut using curved border dies.  I die cut portions of the ODBD Blooming Garden Paper Collection and layered that the my scored panels as shown.  The sentiment is stamped in Espresso on a Vanilla panel, then die cut with Oval Die and layered on an Oval Espresso panel.  The beautiful Zinnia flowers are stamped in Espresso on piece of the ODBD Blooming Garden Paper Collection, then die cut and embossed using the ODBD Custom Zinnia and Leaves Die.  To embellish the Zinnia's I added buttons to the centers and embossed die cuts using the Leaves from the ODBD Custom Zinnia and Leaves Die and the ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage Die.  The cute bee can be found on the Zinnia stamp set, it is stamped on a scrap of the ODBD Blooming Garden Paper Collection and die cut/embossed using the ODBD Custom Zinnia Die.
