Our Daily Bread Designs - December Release

December 01, 2014

A new month is here and I'm delighted to let you know that once more I've been invited to join Our Daily Bread Designs for their new release! I'm having a great time creating with the beautiful new collections of dies and stamps, and I'm beyond thankful!

Today the design team has a wonderful array of samples to inspire you. I have two cards to share with you all.


For my first card, I made a large rosette by die cutting two frames with the Flourished Star Pattern, then cutting them in halves vertically, scoring each piece and finally adhering the pieces together.


I also die cut four Gilded Gates to create two borders for the background of the card. Finally I stamped one of the many lovely sentiments from the Mini Tags clear stamp set on a mini tag die cut, which I mounted on a larger coordinating tag label.

Supplies
Mini Tags die set
Gilded Gate die set
Flourished Star Pattern die set
Mini Tag Sentiments stamp set
The Gate stamp set
Christmas Paper Collection 2014


My second creation is a step card. I used craft metal for the gorgeous Gilded Gate die cuts. I used five gate die cuts, that I adhered together to cover the front of the first step. The second step was decorated with part of a Vintage Flourish Pattern frame. The final step was covered with a layer die cut with the largest frame from the recently released Flourished Star Pattern. I also added two coordinating Vintage Flourish Pattern labels that make the new sentiment from The Gate stamp set stand out nicely. I decorated the labels with some flourish die cuts on each side, but these are actually one little flourish label from the same set that I cut in half and adhered behind the silver label.

Supplies
Gilded Gate die set
