ODBD Bread Basket

Thursday, April 8, 2010
Happy Thursday!! Today I have more to share with you. This is a card I created for today's Stamping In Time Challenge for Our Daily Bread Designs.

The Assignment: Any and ALL ODBD stamps! WooHoo!

The challenge: The challenge this week is brought to you by our challenge host, Randi Barrett. Randi is challenging us to tearing or faux tearing . You can create wonderful layered torn looks, framing, or create a faux torn look on your cards. We would love to see what you create using your ODBD stamps with this challenge!

Here is my take on the challenge using Happy Father's Day (image) and Dad (verse). The dp is Basic Grey Marakech. I did lots of distressing and used some real thick thread for my sewing. One of the panels is embossed with A Sizzix diamond template. It was done a few times to give it a more worn look. The layout is the same sketch that I used for the card above (SC275 from Splitcoast).

This card also meets the challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts which is to make a masculine card and include a Bible verse and A Spoon full of Sugar which is to create one for the boys.

Card recipe:
stamps: Happy Father's Day (image) and Dad (verse)
Paper: Basic Grey Marakech

For more inspiration for the Stamping in Time Challenge, please visit some of my dt sisters:
Randi, Betty, Angie, and Debi.

We hope you can join the fun!! If you do create a card or project with tearing and an ODBD stamp, please leave a direct link here. If you upload your creation to Splitcoast, please use the keyword SNTODBD7. This challenge will end in two weeks.

Have a blessed day!

Only 4 comments so far, heehee, by the time I get here there are at least 54. Your card is absolutely gorgeous. I'm sure it was a challenge to not use pearls, bows and everything nice you do but I still love the Chris look! BTW, I love your new BG pretty, pretty.

The thick thread does give a different look and I really like it! This is a great fathers day card. I n-e-e-d this set for my dad-in-law, who is a contractor, carpenter, custom cabinet maker, ha!
