For the Love 
of  Embossing Plates
 
Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design's Alumni Team's bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop.  This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop For the Love of ODBD  embossing plates! Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, check the ODBD blog for full list of links.  One of the post is a hop hot spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $15 ODBD store gift certificate.  So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love!  You have until Wednesday, August 1st at 6 pm.   Enjoy all the festive inspiration using For the Love of ODBD embossing plates!
If you got here from Tosh's blog you are in the right place.  


For my card I am using ODBD Vintage Border Embossing Plate along with Bird and Butterfly Labels and Mini Tags 3 stamp sets.  I am also using the coordinating Spellbinder's Label 18 die. 

For this card I chose to use the faux letterpress technique.  This technique is so easy.  Just add ink to the plate, cardstock, and emboss.  The ink sinks into the debossed portion of the plate.  I love the finished look.  

I finished with one of the Bird and Butterfly images stamped in the same ink with a sentiment from Mini Tags 3.  I added a seam binding bow and a few touches of bling.  These spellbinder frame card toppers can be made up ahead of time and added to a card when in a pinch or for a card set for gift giving.  The added embossing plate touch gives it that extra something special touch.

    The ink/embossing technique that you used including the bird and butterfly label are very lovely:) It is inspiring to see you use one bright color of ink for the biggest part of your card and then---(insert chime sound) the sweet sentiment in black----very lovely:) thank you for sharing and for allowing me to glean from you:) be blessed
