ODBD September Release Blog Hop!

Hello everyone!!! Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs September release blog hop! This month’s release is super fun!! I just love all these sets with a plant and seeds theme!!!Julie Warner - justwritedesigns - https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com

For my card, I colored the wonderful image from The Good Seed and cut it out. It’s attached to a Scrolly Border which was also colored and die cut w/ a Spellbinders Long Rectangle that I resized to make shorter. The green card stock was embossed w/ a journal folder and added some raised dots w/ a black glaze pen. The very colorful dp is some I’ve had in my stash for a while. The paper bow was made from some Twistel (tightly wrapped paper) that I unwrapped before tying it in a bow. I used a 1/2″ circle for my faux brad made from the same dp. The finished card measures 5 x 6.5 (A7). [Note: to those who asked about lining up the sentiment w/ the embossing folder. I figured out where the image panel would go, then stamped the greeting on the green c/s. Then I placed the green c/s in the embossing folder and lined it up. It’s much easier to align the folder w/ the stamped image than vice versa. πŸ™‚ ]

  32. What a fun card! Love the style. . .so retro, yet so chic! Nice work! Blessings!

  33. I really like this. The punch from the black & white checked areas is so jolly! Is there somewhere I can find out how to line up a stamp on the embossed lines? I saw that embossing folder and was very tempted by it. Now I have to go to HB and get it! Sort of a “build it and they will come” thing. Buy the folder, then figure out how to make it work!

  34. Very interesting. Great use of background paper.

  35. Wow! This just says “happy” all over it! Fabulous card. I love all the details!
