Hello and welcome to the ODBD July New Release! Grace is on vacation this month so Kelley is in charge and she’s going to change it up a bit! We will not be having a regular blog hop, but Kelley will be posting all of the Design Teams cards on the ODBD Blog and links to their blogs.

On my first card, I white embossed the sentiment on teal card stock and die cut it w/ a mega oval die. The rest of the framing was die cut w/ the radiant rectangles dies. I cut two each of the radiant rectangle dies and the oval and sandwiched a piece of vellum in between them so it would look as pretty on the inside as on the outside. I added some pearls to my 6 x 4.50 card.

On my second card, I silver embossed the swirly cake on black card stock and die cut w/ a Labels 4 die. The silver layer behind it was die cut w/ Gold Labels 4 die. I used a white gel pen to color in the little hearts and went over the center hearts w/ a red Micron pen. The black background was stamped w/ white pigment ink using the Brocade Background. I let it dry a bit before sprinkling on white embossing powder and heat embossing it.
