I wanted to play along in the current Our Daily Bread Designs challenge (ODBDSLC26) to use punches or dies. After much deliberation, I finally decided to use ODBD "Amazing Grace Hymn" as the featured sentiment.
I had to photograph this in the evening, and without a light tent, I apologize that the colors are a little off in the photo. I used Basic Grey "Porcelain" paper for the background. I stamped the panel and hand cut both of the Nestabilities panels (does that still count as using a die?). This card is 6" square, and to get the entire hymn included, I would have needed to use the largest die and there was a lot of white border space and it barely fit on the card front (without a mat underneath). So then I thought I'd trace the outer edge of the second largest Nestie and hand cut the sentiment panel. I lightly sponged the edges of the sentiment panel with SU! Certainly Celery. I mounted the panel on the olive mat and just hand trimmed a mat border that's approximately 1/8". There's a little MS punched border behind the panel and then I just added some roses to the bottom. There are MS leaf punches behind the biggest roses. I tried to fit in a silk ribbon bow in the center, but it was just too much and overwhelming. (At least I have a white silk bow tied and ready to go at a moment's notice!)
Here is a detail shot of the roses.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
Edited to add: This card was chosen to receive a "Shining the Light" badge. It made my day!
