Welcome the the Our Daily Bread designs June Release Blog Hop! If you got here from Lorelie’s incredible blog, you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start at the Our Daily Bread designs Blog and hop from there so you have a chance to win one of the FOUR fabulous prizes up for grabs this month!

jAren’t the June Release images beautiful?  For my card I’m using the Dahlia and Crochet Border (from the Serve the Lord set) along with the Butterfly Single (& matching die) and a Birthday sentiment. The pink background and dahlia were done DTP (direct to paper) using pigment inks. After setting them w/ a heat tool, I went over it an Opalite ink pad then heat set again. I love the soft shimmer of the Opalite ink. The dahlia was stamped and black embossed several times, cut out and layered together for depth and color variation.

Julie Warner - justwritedesigns - https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.comThe crochet border was stamped on the DTP background panel and the white panel w/ the green ink and I used the matching border die to carefully cut just the outside edge of the white panel (I used the Sizxix machine for this). Even though this is a fairly large card (5.5 square), I ran out of room for the sentiment. So I stamped it on the ribbon and attached it across the corner.

Tip: If you don’t have the right ribbon (color or width), either color white ribbon w/ markers or turn the ribbon over to see if the back side will work. For this card, I didn’t have the right width of plain ribbon, so I turned a stripe ribbon over and saw the back side was a very pale pink and would work.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
