 For my card, I am using ODBD Gift of God stamp set.  I layered some MME  Christmas Collection designer papers.  I love the horizontal pine cones with greenery image that comes in the stamp set.   I decided to create a sentiment frame by stamping the image twice on top of each other with space between.   The images are cut out so close that all I had to do was eyeball it to line it up.  And, to my surprise the finish shape works fabulously with ODBD Custom Spellbinder's Elegant Ovals dies.    LOVE that!   I gold embossed and ink distressed the edges a bit.  I layered with another Spellbinder's  frame alternating with ivory and gold glittered cardstock.  The Grand Calibur cuts the heavy weight glitter cardstock out like buddah!   I am also using a frame from Spellbinder's Book Pages 2.  I added some tiny gold pearls to the embossed framed areas.   I finished with a triple look gold memory thread bow with curly ques to finish my card. 


Now I’ll send you on your way!  Your next hop is the ODBD Blog!  Don't forget to answer the question!

  36. That is so rich and luxurious looking. I really like the pinecone image - I used to have a pine tree just outside my bedroom window when I was growing up, and it brings back memories of the scent of the needles, and the glow of burning cones in the fire.
