Snowflake Crystals - Our Daily Bread Designs November Release and Blog Hop

Welcome to the New Release post and Blog Hop showcasing projects from Our Daily Bread Designs November Release! You can see all of the November Releases here. Continue reading below to find out how you can win one of three $25 Gift Codes to the ODBD Website! 

Today I'm sharing two cards using the new Merry & Bright stamp set, Snow Crystals, Snowflake Sky and Christmas Lights die sets along with the Snowflake Season paper collection from the November Release along with some additional ODBD Stamps, Die Sets and Paper Collections (see supply list below).

My first card is a Fancy Fold using the Double Display Card Kit.  These card kits take the guess work out of cutting and scoring, as the bases are cut and scored, there are 6 in a package, 3 White and 3 Ivory.

The sentiment and lights are from the Merry & Bright stamp set.  The lights from this set are die cut using the Christmas Lights die set.  Because clear stamps tend to get wonky when adhering to the clear blocks, here's a tip to help you to ensure the die aligns with the stamp.  Place the stamp face down into the die, then adhere the clear block to the stamps.  Stamp and die cut according to the sandwich stamp for your particular die cutting machine.

To embellish my card, I used the new Snowflake Season Paper Collection, cutting the panels to fit, adding the die cut lights, stamped sentiment panel and beautiful Snowfake Crystals cut from White, Silver and Ruby card stock.

My next card features a window scene, using the tree from the Joys of the Season stamp set, and sentiment and lights from Merry & Bright stamp set, along with quite a few ODBD layering die sets (see supply list below).  The card is embellished with the Snow Crystals die set.  

I did alter two of the dies from the Mini Tags die set, as I wanted to omit the loop on the dies.  Here's the dies I used, and what the panels looked like after I altered my die cutting.
