.....using several of the new releases from Our Daily Bread Designs:

My first card is created using the image from Holly Wreath embossed in gold and cut out.  The die used to frame the card is the Spellbinders Ribbon Threader.  The Holly Wreath sentiment is cut out and matted with the ODBD Recipe Card and Tag Die. The background of the image panel is dry embossed with a Darice Damask folder.  The panel behind it is dry embossed with a Basket weave embossing folder.  The ribbon is Silk from May Arts.


 My second card uses O Little Town of Bethlehem and Jingle bells.  The Background is stamped in white craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  The sentiment is from Jingle Bells and is cut out and framed with the Spellbinders Scalloped and Classic Ovals.  The border along the top and bottom is  Spellbinders Floral Border Doily Accents.

This is certainly a great release! I'm glad that I've found time for the blog hop this evening. Love the Little Town card (sheet music will get me every time) but the first one - wow, Chris! You've given that wreath stamp such a totally different look to Julie's card, and made it look so rich and luxurious. Love the stitching round the edges! It reminds me of the beautifully ornate cards in a feature I have on Victorian cards.

Sabrina aka okimom2girlz said...

Chris, my sweet friend, first let me say, I miss you! :D Your cards are over the top gorgeous! Love, love, love, both of them! Hugs and blessings, Sabrina
