Welcome, my artistic friends! Today I’ve created for you a Mother’s Day card that features Our Daily Bread Designs Star Quilt Die. At the beginning of April, Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) released a new set of stamps, dies, and paper that focus on sewing and quilting. You can see the gorgeous new items HERE.
I purchased the new products when released, but haven’t used them until I made this card. Actually, I was a little intimidated by the many pieces to the dies. Now that I’m made this card, I feel more confident.
I LOVE Our Daily Bread Designs products! This quilting release is so beautiful and reminds me of days gone by when I would sit and watch my dear Mom produce quilts, embroidery pieces, and develop other beautiful crafts.
UPDATE: This card was included in Splitcoaststampers Favorites for the Week ending April 24!
The above photo gives you a closeup of the “quilt”. Although Our Daily Bread Designs released designer paper to go with the dies in the release, I decided to use Stampin’ Up! Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper for this design. After die cutting the quilting frame, I added SU Crystal Effects to give it some shine. If you look closely, you can see that. I also added a green embroidery thread knot in the center of the “quilt”. I thought that would be quite appropriate.
This closeup shows the bottom portion of the card. I used Our Daily Bread Designs Quilted With Love Stamp Set for my sentiment, “Love you to pieces!”. I used VersaMark ink and a green embossing powder on the sentiment. I love the two pairs of scissors and spool of thread die cuts that are from Spellbinders. I wrapped green embroidery thread around the spool and threaded it through the green pair of scissors to make it appear that the thread is being cut. Both pairs of scissors are highlighted with SU Crystal Effects.
Lastly, I created this card in response to a Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge, seen HERE. (I almost forgot to mention that!)
I hope you’ve enjoyed the card and will check out the sewing/quilting release from Our Daily Bread Designs! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!
