Today we’re taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs Oct. 1 release! Aren’t the ornaments & sentiments beautiful? And the Flourished Alphabet can be used all year round! This is also for the Inspiration Challenge (IC516) & I chose THIS as my inspiration.
My card today features the Elegant Embellishments ornaments dies. This card is so sparkly with all the green glitter card stock & green glitter heat embossed greeting! I die cut the white layer w/ a matting basics die & the green glitter layer w/ the largest Flourished Star Pattern die. After determining the placement for the ornaments, I die cut the top left one in the white layer using the solid ornament die. I used this white backing for the ornament on the lower right. A snowflake ornament topper was die cut out of another piece of white & attached on top of the negative ornament on the left. The lower right ornament has a die cut topper out of the green glitter c/s. I also die cut a leafy border to drape across the top so my ornaments would have something to attach to & not appear as if they are floating in mid air.
After I inked the Joyeux Noel, I wiped off the ink on the letter J before heat embossing it w/ green glitter powder. I used a stamp positioner to stamp the Flourished letter J in its place. The Small Bow die was used to cut the 2 green glitter bows & I attached them on top of the ornaments.
Here’s a look at the inside using some leftover strips of the green glitter c/s. The greeting was heat embossed w/ with green glitter powder & the 2 side flourishes are cut outs from the Leafy Edged Border die cut on the front.
