Christmas is Coming in October…from ODBD!

SC352 blk

You're just going to love this release coming up from
Our Daily Bread designs!

SC352 Embossed Christmas

Here you see Holiday Ornaments that match up with Spellbinders Holiday Tags. And that fun background… is the same paper that is the vertical layer, embossed with the Victoria folder! It’s also the sketch challenge this week on Splitcoast.

My good cyber friend, and oh-so-talented Mel, reminded me of this fun Emboss Resist technique. I’ll let her explain it all since she went to all the trouble with pics and all! Such a sense of humor…she’s a hoot! Check it out…

                   **WARNING**
you can spend hours on her blog!

So, this is what my background piece looks like…

Sure changes the looks of DP doesn’t it!

Mel’s is much neater than mine, but I still love how it turned out. I used Ranger Distress Black Soot reinker to “blacken” my paper.

I sponged the Ornaments while in the dies. The silver “brads” are leftover from the Mirror paper punched the other day from the Chipboard Ornaments! Merry Christmas is also embossed on more Prima DP and Spellbinders Labels 23. The red layers are “fauxed” cardstock… I just drug my Ranger Distress Barn Door over the edges of white!

One more Christmas card down… how many to go?!

Thanks for stopping!
