Our Daily Bread designs November New Release Blog Hop
Hi everyone! Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs November New Release Blog Hop! This month's release is one of my faves for this year......check out the New Release post HERE to read about all of the new sets!
I know....I've jumped ahead two months by making a New Year card, but as soon as I saw the Ornaments 2 set this month, with the snowflake tree and Happy New Year sentiment....they had to go hand in hand! Don't faint, but I cut apart all of the sections of the snowflake tree in order to stamp the background for this card. It took a few minutes to stamp, but was really easy to line up. The shape of the tree, without the snowflake on top or the base on the bottom, was a basic triangle. I cut my 5" panel, then started stamping the triangle point up, then point down, point up, point down....all the way across. Before I knew it, the entire panel was covered in snowflakes!!!!! Once the background was done, I inked up the swirly part of the stamp in teal for an added accent, distressed, inked , and pierced the edges. To finish, I cut out a Fancy Labels 3 die for the sentimet, then added satin ribbon, two layers of crocheted lace, plus some pearls and "Pearl" Glimmer Mist.
