Our Daily Bread Designs Guest Designer - Week 3

     So happy to have you stop by my blog today on my third week as a guest designer for Our Daily Bread Designs. Today, I have an easel card that celebrates winter. 
     This card is 4.25" x 5.5" overall. I started with a white card-base folded to be an easel. I trimmed a patterned-paper panel from ODBD's Christmas Paper Collection 2013 to fit the front of the card. I just love the tone-on-tone snowflakes on this sheet, so much so that it was hard for me to actually cut it. I inked the edges in red and added pearls to the center of some of the snowflakes.
     Using a red patterned-paper from the same collection, I stamped and heat-embossed five snowflakes in white. I die-cut them, and as you can see on the bottom-left, I used two of them together to give depth to the card. I added lots of pearls to each snowflake because I love pearls!  
     I added a few red and white striped strips and tucked another of my snowflakes behind the sentiment tag which I stamped in red. I inked the edges and adhered the tag with foam tape.
     Now just for fun, here are some close ups of my snowflakes. I so love this collection of snowflake stamps.



     Thanks so much for popping in today. I always enjoy your visits and comments.
