ODBDSLC217 - Holiday Card

The Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week is to make a holiday card.  Join us here for all of the details.

This holiday card was so easy, I just let this beautiful ODBD paper do all the work!  I heat embossed this lovely ODBD star and colored with water based marker and cut out with the Splendous Stars die, it made the gorgeous piercing that you see, this was layered on a flourish and the song sentiment was sponged and placed on my favorite doily from the Doily Dies set. I'm very fond of dry embossing, so I added a strip of black embossed paper behind.

ODBD Stamps Used:  Snowflake Stars 
ODBD Papers Used: Christmas Collection 2014

Other Supplies: Spellbinder circle, foam tape,  embossing folder, heat embossing, re inkers, water pen.

Check out the blogs of my talented friends for more inspiration.
