ODBD December Release Time!

It's December 1st and that means it's release day at 
Our Daily Bread Designs!

My first card (5 1/4" square) uses a fun-to-color sled image from the new set - Let It Snow - which could be used for any winter greeting...not just Christmas!  I colored with Copics after stamping the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It Blending Card then die cut with Spellbinders' Wonky Rectangle die. I took a needle and picked up tiny dots of Liquid Pearls to add to the berries that are interspersed in the greenery.  I used a silver Wink of Stella shimmer brush marker to add a hint of shimmer to the bells.  Coarse glitter was added to the snowy areas, so there's lot of sparkle in real life!

So...for my second card, I switched gears and went with a patriotic theme so I could feature the newly released Patriotic Collection 6x6 paper pad and one of the mini tag sentiments and dies. 



There is a new Mini Tag Sentiment stamp set and a Mini Tag die set that is so versatile!  Check out the oodles of sentiments  which cover almost any occasion you can imagine!  So many times, I create a card that has no room for a large sentiment, so now these small tags allow me to tuck in a teeny sentiment without blocking the main design. The Sparkling Star dies are from ODBD's November release and pair up perfectly with the new designer paper!

There is much more to see with this new release, so you will want to hop on over to the Our Daily Bread Designs blog...OR...you can

Great cards, Wanda! I really like your sparkly snow. I lived in Alaska for 22 years, so I am especially fond of sparkly snow. It shines like diamonds.
And, I really like the blue cord on your other card.
