ODBD September Release!

Pink Wreath 01941

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs September Release! Wow, do we some fabulous images for you!

On my wreath card, I stamped the Holly Wreath with the bamboo ink and shaded the background holly w/ a lt green Copic marker.For the top images, I used a dk green Micron pen to outline them and make them stand out more. The image and the designer paper circle behind it were die cut with circle dies and added on top of an embossed white layer. On the larger designer paper layer, I added some scored lines at the bottom. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Pink Ornament 01953

For my pink ornament card, after cutting a large background piece out of two sided pink designer paper, I die cut the fancy ornament out of the reverse side. I stamped the greeting on white and die cut the same ornament shape around it, then trimmed away all but the center greeting section and attached it on top of the pink version. The corners (from the same set) were also die cut out of the dark pink and since some of the paper had white streaked areas, I used a white Permapaque marker to add them to all of the corners.


The pinecone was stamped on white and fussy cut to add on top of the ornament. Another solid ornament die was used to die cut the white backing ornament. I added some white dots on the dk pink background to help tie it all together. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

    Using pink for the focal color on your Christmas cards is a great idea. So nice not to get the usual red and green ones.
    Great job.
