Below are the new and previously released stamps, dies, and papers featured in my two samples today:

Our Daily Bread designs Grace's Hope Our Daily Bread designs Faith Card Sentiments

Our Daily Bread designs Custom Filigree Frames Dies Our Daily Bread designs Custom Lavish Layers Dies

Our Daily Bread designs Custom Birds and Nest Dies Our Daily Bread designs Custom Lovely Leaves Dies

Our Daily Bread designs Ornamental Crosses Dies Our Daily Bread designs Faith, Hope, and Love

Our Daily Bread designs Stitched Rectangles Dies Our Daily Bread designs Rectangles Dies

Our Daily Bread designs Ephemera Essentials Paper Collection

For my first sample today, I began by cutting out two of the large frames from the ODBD Custom Filigree Frames Dies and one of the smaller decorative rectangles from a light peach metallic cardstock. Two of the large frames were cut out so that I could cut and overlap the tall end over the short end and make my horizontal frame symmetrical.  The sentiment panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Rectangles Dies; the sentiment from 'Faith Card Sentiments' was stamped in blackberry ink and clear embossed.  The little cross was cut out with the ODBD Custom Ornamental Crosses Dies.  Some pearls and a blackberry bow were added for finishing touches.

For my second card, to coordinate with the sentiment from 'Grace's Hope', the 'Hope' word from the 'Faith, Hope, and Love' set was heat embossed with Espresso brown embossing powder onto white cardstock, fussy cut, then popped up with foam tape.  The framing is a combination of die cuts from the ODBD Custom Lavish Layers Dies and ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies.  The layered flower was cut with the ODBD Custom Birds and Nest Dies and the leaf flourishes were cut with the ODBD Custom Lovely Leaves Dies set.  The cocoa colored polka dot paper is from the new ODBD Ephemera Essentials Paper Collection (which coordinates with the previously released Vintage Ephemera Paper Collection.)

Your cards are stunning. They show off the beauty of the verses and dies without requiring too much glitz and tons of layers. I personally love these 2 cards and they inspire me towards the ultimate in simple elegance. I find that a very difficult look to do well. You’ve nailed it.
