Good morning everyone!
Today's challenge for Our Daily Bread Designs is Religious Christmas!
I'm using some of ODBD new dies with this traditional and older ornament stamp. It may not be brand new but I still love it!
ODBD dies used: Leafy Edged Border, Peaceful Poinsettia, Merry Mosaics, Lovely Leaves, Pinecones, Circle Ornaments, Matting Circles
ODBD paper used: Christmas Paper Collection 2015
This photo shows the pretty gold a little better!
I gold embossed the Mother and Child image as well as the sentiment. I went ahead and colored the image in pastel colors. I used the Leafy Edged Border to cut my embossed ivory layer and the burgundy snowflake layer. I used some gold ruffly ribbon on the edge just for something different. I cut out my sentiment and glued to the snowflake paper. I used the new Merry Mosaic poinsettia and Pine cones to help decorate the top of my ornament along with the greenery from the Lovely Leaves die set. I also tied some gold cord to the top of the ornament and fringed the ends.
Here is another one using the same basic stamps.
This one is all white and silver.
ODBD stamps used: Mother and Child Ornament, Blessed Christmas, Oh Little Town Of Bethlehem Background
I used the Flourished Star Pattern die to emboss the silver back layer. I silver embossed the Little Town of Bethlehem as well as the Mother and Child ornament and the sentiment. I cut extra stars with the Splendorous Star and the Shining Star then glued it to the top of the star on the music layer and added a pearl. The bow and sentiment die cut has Silver Leaf pen around the edges. The greenery is from the new Lovely Leaves die set. I added some pearl flourishes.
