**For each of my three cards, I have copied and pasted the details from the original blog posts (since I was too lazy to re-write them all! lol!!)
My first card was a birthday card for my niece. Here is what I wrote, "She requested purple, green, and black....no problem! Usually it takes me a while to design a card, but this time I instantly thought of the following items from Our Daily Bread Designs which would work together: the awesome butterfly from 'Boho Blessings' (cut out with the largest of the ODBD Custom 'Fancy Fritillary' Dies), the leaf pattern from the 'Beautiful Boho' Paper Collection, the ODBD Custom 'Boho Background' Die, a quote from 'Quote Collection 4', individual letters from the 'Pennant Row Alphabet' set, and the ODBD Custom 'Pennant Row' Dies set. After cutting the ODBD Custom 'Boho Background' out of black cardstock, I cut a TON of little pieces of foam tape in order to pop it up over the designer paper....so worth the time!! The pennant and butterfly were popped up as well. (I am a foam tape addict!!) My niece is an aspiring artist, which is why I chose this particular quote and the word 'Inspire'."
My second fave card was super tedious, but a blast to make....here are the details:
"My project below features the 'Father's Day Tools' single, ODBD Custom 'Workshop Tools' Dies, ODBD Custom 'Tool Time' Dies, and 'Wood Background' stamp. This card was super fun to make, although the fussy cutting the image (and applying foam tape) took four hours total, over the span of several days. The card itself was super easy....it began as an A2 card, then the corners were cut and an oval die was used for the cut out. The card base and front panel were stamped with the ODBD 'Wood Background' stamp, then the edges were sponged for a bit more dimension. The little screws are eyelets which I bought in my first couple months of stamping (15 years ago or so)....I didn't even know what eyelets were, but I loved that they were little screw heads, so I bought them!!! lol!!! The tools were cut from the ODBD Custom 'Workshop Tools' dies and the ODBD Custom 'Tool Time' Dies, then tucked into the pocket which was raised with foam tape."
Here is a close up of the fussy cutting:
My third favorite was a birthday card for my nephew, who loves anything in camouflage and wants to be a soldier when he grows up. Here are the card details:
"My sample today features the new 'Pennant Row Alphabet', the ODBD Custom 'Pennant Row Dies' set, 'Special Boy', 'Fishing Net Background', ODBD Custom 'Pennants' Dies, ODBD Custom 'Stitched Ovals' Dies, and ODBD Custom 'Ovals' Dies. To create the cammo pennant, the ODBD Custom 'Pennant Row Die' was cut from Kraft cardstock, the letters from the 'Pennant Row Alphabet' were stamped on white with green, then trimmed by hand and adhered to the die cut piece. Using the same die, I traced the outline onto the cammo designer paper, then cut out by hand. Two little stars cut with the ODBD 'Sparkling Stars' Dies were the anchors for the ends. The monster truck from 'Special Boy' was stamped on white and also on the cammo paper; parts of the truck were colored with markers and the cammo section was cut out and paper-pieced onto the image. The banners were cut with the ODBD Custom 'Pennants' Dies, the army net background was stamped with the 'Fishing Net Background' stamp, and the scene behind the truck was sponged in kraft and aqua."
