ODBD April Release Reminder

Good morning!

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs April Release, here is the card I created using To My Friend stamp set and the Lattice Background die. For more inspiration using the April Release be sure to visit the ODBD Blog.
This card also uses the Oval, Pierced Oval, Circles and Pierce Circles dies.

I created my background with Color Burst and course salt.  When dry I just brush off the salt and stamp or die cut it (Depends on my project of course) I stamped the dandelions from To My Friend with Black VersaFine using my Misti so that I could stamp the image several times to make it really black since the water color paper is pretty rough.  I stamped the sentiment on a leftover piece of background.
I die cut the lattice background from white then cut it in half.  I cut another one and just used the 2 long edges to trim out the cut edges of my Lattice.
The Gate fold is made by scoring an 8 1/2 X 5 1/2" piece of card stock at 2 1/8 and 6 3/8 which leaves 2 1/8" on both ends, this is the gate closure.  Fold the 2 end toward the middle and use a bone folder to make a good crease.
When adding the circle you only put foam tape on the left half to keep it from sticking to the other side.
When adding the oval at the top, leave the left side open so that you can tuck the circle underneath. 

On the inside I repeated the lattice and circle with another sentiment from To My Friend.
For this card I added ribbon the help close my card securely.  The ribbon needs to be added before attaching the large image circle on the front.
