ODBD November Release Blog Hop!

Hello my friends! Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs Nov. Release
Blog Hop!  You might want to start at the ODBD Blog so you don’t miss anything!

For my card, I used the fabulous new Chickadee Ornament!

I also used the lovely O Christmas Tree Carol from last month’s release. the pine branch/pinecone from Sing for Joy and the sweet little Chickadee w/ matching die.

Julie Warner - https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com
After stamping the ornament and chickadee, I die cut the ornament w/ a circle die and the backing gold layer w/ a larger circle. I used the matching die for the chickadee (such a fabulous time saver!) and added a little color w/ copics. The pine branches were fussy cut. Originally, I had a separate background using the music background, but it just didn’t work so instead I stamped it w/ gold ink directly on the white card front. I thought I still needed a little separation between the main images and background, so I die cut a pine green frame and added a little texture. I just happened to have the red ring (from another project) and it was the right size so I added it inside the frame edge. Instead of adding another layer, I sponged the gold ink around the edges of the card front. A little gold bow w/ some added pine branch cut outs on top finished my 4.25 x 5.50 card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
