ODBDSLC215 - Anything Goes with ODBD Stamps (week 2)

We are now in to week 2 of the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge (ODBDSLC215) - Anything Goes with ODBD stamps. You can see the first card that I made for this challenge here. Here is my card for this week:

Elizabeth Whisson, Our Daily Bread Designs, Copics, Christmas Verses, Beautiful Borders dies, Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies, Matting Circles Dies, Mother and Child Ornament, Circle Ornament Dies, Joy to the World Hymn

For the background I've stamped Our Daily Bread Designs Joy to the World Hymn on silver card with Distress embossing ink and embossed using clear embossing powder (see image below for close up). The gorgeous blue diecut down the left side of my card is from ODBD Beautiful Borders die.

The way the light reflects off the silver card it almost looks like gold embossing - but it's actually clear :-)
For the image I have stamped Our Daily Bread Designs Mother and Child Ornament using Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It blending card and coloured with Copic markers (I have the colours written down somewhere - will have to find them). I've then diecut using ODBD Circle Ornament dies and then matted with ODBD Matting Circles dies. The little ornament topper comes with the ODBD Circle Ornament dies and I've used my krylon gold leafing pen to colour it (thanks Cheryl for the idea)!

For my sentiment I have stamped the Merry Christmas from Our Daily Bread Designs Christmas Verses onto silver cardstock in black ink and clear embossed. I've then diecut it using a die from ODBD Vintage Flourish Pattern and matted with a larger die from the same set, ODBD Vintage Flourish Pattern dies.

Lastly I've added a few 4 mm silver sprinkles to the top right of my card.

  1. Oh my gosh, this is too funny. I just made a card that uses ALL these same elements except the bg song. What are the odds! At least it isn't this week!!! Anyway, I love your card and your coloring of Mary and Jesus!! Just gorgeous!!! That bg stamp done in gold on gold is awesome!...Lovely Elizabeth!

  2. Oh, Elizabeth, this is gorgeous, and I'm so glad you showed a close-up photo of the embossed background! It's stunning and clearly is far more beautiful IRL! And I love your coloring and wonderful layout! Yes, the Krylon was easy, wasn't it? Glad we can share hints. We always learn something new from each other! Hugs, sweet friend!

  3. Every week there is one card that is totally outstanding in all ways and this one is it. magnificent doesn't do it justice. The gold embossing of Joy to the World is the perfect landing place for the Holy Family. Thank you for posting your beautiful art with us this week during our 153rd challenge at Word Art Wednesday.
