Our Daily Bread Designs Anniversary!!

Hi Everyone - Thanks for stopping by.  Today we're celebrating Day 4 of ODBD's 7th Anniversary  - with two Special Edition Commemorative Stamp Sets.  And we're giving away 7 free stamps to 7 lucky winners!!  This is such a special time at ODBD - I hope you can join in the celebration with us.

My card today features one of the stamps form the new God Quotes set.  Here's a close-up view:

God Quotes

To make this card I started with the sentiment panel - stamping and die-cutting those layers.  Next I created the card base and die-cut that background layer.  After that I went to work on the Butterflies - and I decided to try something different...  I stamped/die-cut the butterfly on Velum card stock, then colored them using Sakura Glaze pens.  The cool thing is that the Glaze didn't dry on the velum right away - which allowed me to blend the colors a bit.  After that I used a heat tool to set the ink.  They were a bit deformed from the Glaze and heat, so I used a bone-folder to curve them back into shape.

Here's another photo:

God's Gift

Next I die-cut the Fancy Foliage out of ODBD papers, played with placement, and then started gluing/mounting everything.  The butterflies were so vibrant that I felt they needed something else - like flowers :)!!!  So after everything was together I added the flowers - some are punched and some are made using the little flower from the Ornamental Crosses set.  Playing with flowers is one of my favorite things - and I felt the more flowers I added the more at home the butterflies seemed to be LOL!!

Speaking of butterflies - here's a super close-up shot.  The velum makes them seem almost real - like they're about to take off!!

Last touches were the pearls and liquid pearl flower centers.

Here's one more shot, this time of the full card:
