Hi everyone!!! Welcome to Our Daily Bread designs' July New Release Blog Hop!!

There will be three winners of a $20.00 gift certificate to the ODBD store and one blessed winner will received the Bread Basket Bundle (the entire new release!!!)...yay!! Just hop from blog to blog and leave a comment for a chance to win!!
For my card, I have used the new "Flowering Faith" set, which is very artsy and whimsical and fun! As soon as I saw the flowering branch image, it reminded me of Spellbinders Curved Rectangles dies because of the shape.....my hunch was right....it stamped in the corners perfectly!!! (If you haven't seen all of the full sets yet, click HERE to see them in the New Release post.) I also used the Curved Rectangle die to cut the shaped card, using my Spellbinders Grand Calibur.....it cuts through the folded card perfectly every time.....it has some really great pressure and cranks very easily compared to some. If you'd like to see my tutorial on how to cut a shaped card using your cutting dies, please see this post on the ODBD Blog.
