Deck the Halls - ODBD October Release

Welcome to the New Release post showcasing projects from Our Daily Bread Designs September Release!  You can see all of the October Releases here.  Continue reading below to find out how you can win one of three $15 Gift Certificates to the ODBD Store good towards the purchase of ODBD stamps.

Today, I'm sharing two Christmas cards created with the new Noel Ornament stamp set, ODBD Custom Peaceful Poinsettias Dies and ODBD Custom Matting Circles Dies along with some additional ODBD Custom Dies, stamps and paper!

My first card is a TriFold Card, when folded it's A2 in size

I love to add layers to my projects and this card had plenty of them!  The base is Hunter, to embellish the panels I added pattern paper from the ODBD Christmas Paper Collection 2013 to Vanilla card stock.  I also added borders to the side panel using the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies.  I embossed the Noel Ornament in Gold Detail on a scrap piece from this paper paper collection, die cutting the image with the ODBD Custom Circle Ornaments Die, layering a Vanilla die cut using the ODBD Custom Matting Circles Dies, then a Hunter panel that was die cut using the ODBD Custom Doily Dies.  To embellish the ornament I die cut/embossed and stenciled the ODBD Custom Peaceful Poinsettias Die from the paper collection, scruched the flower for a 3D look, then added die cut leaves using the ODBD Custom Circle Ornaments Dies, Seam Binding and Zva Creative Crystal Gems.  The ornament can easily be removed by the card recipient so they can hang it on their tree.

My next cards is a Clean and Layered Card using the ODBD Custom Peaceful Poinsettias Dies/Matting Circles Dies/Circle Ornaments Dies/Beautiful Borders Dies/Ornate Borders and Flower Dies, Noel Ornament and Christmas Door stamp set.

To create the poinsettia, I Silver embossed the Noel Ornament on pattern paper, then die cut the ODBD Custom Peaceful Poinsettias Dies, die cutting two of the largest die for a fuller poinsettia.  The poinsettia is layered on two circle panels die cut using the ODBD Custom Circle Ornaments Dies and ODBD Custom Matting Circles Dies.  The sentiment is stamped in Burgundy using the Christmas Door stamp set.  To embellish I added Silver die cuts using the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies and Ornate Borders and Flower Dies, along with Silver Gems.
