Missed the posting deadline last week, so I was determined not to wait until the last minute for my ODBD card. Didn't know how to use the sketch until I pulled out all my ODBD stamps.
When I saw the Bird & Butterfly Labels, this idea came to me. The image is black embossed & cut out with the coordinating Spellbinders Labels 18. Then I sponged on Distress Inks weathered wood, scattered straw & bundled sage using frayed burlap on the edges.
The sentiment is from Sweet William-small & was black embossed on a white scrap. The rounded end was cut with the same Nestie & the notch was done with scissors. I sponged it with the same blue & brown inks & mounted it with foam tape allowing the center to be slightly raised. The black background was a scrap piece embossed with a Cuttlebug folder & I used my crimper. Everything is adhered to a kraft card with ribbons & Enamel Dots for embellishment. I love being able to make more than spring/summer cards with this stamp set--now I have another Thanksgiving card ready to mail. I'm entering Simon Says Stamp Monday and SSS Wednesday challenges.
Hope you're getting a chance to be crafty this weekend & thanks for taking some time to visit my blog.
