ODBD "For The Love Of..." Alumni Blog Hop!
Hi everyone!! It's time once again for the Alumni Team's "For the Love of..." bi-monthly Blog Hop!! The theme this time around is "For the Love of Borders and Frames"! Our Daily Bread designs has many border sets, perfect for framing scripture verses or images. My sample today is showcasing Flower Frames 2....these frames were originally designed to fit the scripture stamps from Scripture Collection 1 and Scripture Collection 2, since the verses were quite large, however, I love using Flower Frames 2 for framing scenes as well! The watering can bouquet from the Happy Birthday set fits perfectly....yay!!!
As you hop along today, you will see samples for each of the border sets. If you'd like to see the border sets all in one place, you can always go back to the ODBD store, to the stamp set page. Some of them are bundled together, for example, Flower Frames 1 and Flower Frames 2 are bundled, which saves you 10% when you purchase them together!
For my card sample, as I mentioned above, I chose to combine the Happy Birthday set with Flower Frames 2 to create a 90th birthday card for a family friend. The watering can was stamped in Stazon Royal Purple, then cut out with the custom ODBD Watering Can die. Cutting out the watering can by hand takes way over an hour...using the custom die takes about a minute....thanks, ODBD!!!! I stamped an extra image so that I could cut out and pop up some of the flowers. The frame was also stamped in Royal Purple and was cut out by hand, which is pretty easy (as long as you stick out your tongue!!!!!)
