ODBD Bread Basket

Tuesday, November 1, 2016
Hello, Friends!! Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs November New Release!! You won't want to miss the inspiration from the bread basket using the new release or the chance to win!!  This month there are an abundance of gorgeous stamps and dies!!  Perfect for making both CAS or elaborate cards for Christmas. You are going to love them!

Three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 gift certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps found in the "ODBD stamps column" of the website just for commenting on the Design Team cards on their blogs!  You have until November 2, 2016, at 9:00 p.m. EST to leave your comments for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on November 3rd, so be sure to check back to see if you won!

My first creation uses the new stamp set Merry and Bright as well as the  new Snowflake Sky Background, Snowflake Crystals Die, Christmas Lights Die, and the Snowflake Season Paper Collection.  The fold I created is a Book Fold design using the Pre Cut Book Fold Cards from the ODBD Store.  The inside is decorated with the Snowflake Season Paper Collection layered on Metallic Gold Cardstock.  The sentiment is from the Merry and Bright Stamp set and is framed with the Circles and Pierced Circles dies.  The opposite panel includes a snowflake using a variety of snowflake dies from the Snowflake Crystals dies that are layered using white glitter cardstock, silver metallic cardstock, gold metallic cardstock, and red cardstock.

The outside of the card is decorated with the Snowflake Sky background, another layered snowflake created with the Snowflake Crystals die layered on the Snowflake Season Paper Collection framed with the Circles and Pierced Circles dies. The sentiment is from the Merry and Bright stamp set.

My second creation is more simplistic using a traditional fold created with the Merry and Bright stampset (sentiment) as well as the  new Snowflake Sky Background, and Snowflake Crystals Die.  The sentiment is framed with the Antique Labels die.

The cardstock used for this card uses Neenah White, silver metallic cardstock, real red, and black.

For more inspiration for this release, please visit my dt sisters:
Grace, Sandee, Cathy, Dawn, Robin, Anita, Helen, Angie, Lori, Julie, Kathy, Lisa, and Sabrina

Here are the images of the stamps and dies used from the new release:
