ODBD January Release Look Back!

Hope is an Anchor cu 08196
Today we are taking a look back at the Our Daily Bread designs January release! Don’t you love the fabulous dies & wonderful sets? And the Bible journaling sets are so beautiful! I’m featuring one in my card today, so you’ll see, they are beautiful for more than just one use. 
Hope is an Anchor 08202
I love the images on this anchor set..the smiling sun is so wonderfully hopeful above the scripture with the anchor and shells. I had some textured paper w/ a big anchor on it & I thought it would emphasize the scripture. I wanted the anchor to show up but not overpower the scripture so I stamped it onto a antique vanilla vellum using the multi color ink & embossed it w/ clear powder. I added just a hint of color on the back side of the vellum w/ some Copic markers then used the largest Double Stitched Rectangle to die cut it. I did it 2 corners at a time to get the narrower profile. On the striped anchor dp, I wanted to stamp some of the Fishing Net Bg but I wanted to mask the anchor. After thinking about it for a minute, I decided to make a copy of the dp, then cut out the anchor for a mask. It worked perfectly. The vellum panel was attached w/ tiny brads & I did a little out of the box on the large anchor. The finished card is a little taller & narrower to accommodate the long vellum panel (4 1/18″ x 6″). 

 Here’s a look at the inside.
