ODBDSLC217 - Holiday Card Part 2

The Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week is to make a holiday card.  Join us here for all of the details.



For my second holiday card I started with wonderful DP from the new ODBD Christmas Collection and gave it some distressing.  The star bouquet in the top corner was made with ODBD Sparkling Stars, which were also distressed and sponged and I intertwined a flourish.  The Wisemen image was heat embossed and colored with SU markers and layered on a scalloped oval SB die with corregated cardstock and a lace border.  I made a pastel poinsettia to go with the dp by cutting out the poinsettias in cream cardstock and sponging them with ink and adding glitter glue to the center.

ODBDSLC217 - Holiday Card

The Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week is to make a holiday card.  Join us here for all of the details.



This holiday card was so easy, I just let this beautiful ODBD paper do all the work!  I heat embossed this lovely ODBD star and colored with water based marker and cut out with the Splendous Stars die, it made the gorgeous piercing that you see, this was layered on a flourish and the song sentiment was sponged and placed on my favorite doily from the Doily Dies set. I'm very fond of dry embossing, so I added a strip of black embossed paper behind.
