November is here and we are just getting so close to Christmas! I have been working on cards almost every day to reach my goal before the end of November 🙂 And today I am sharing more Christmas cards with Our Daily Bread Designs.
First, I would love to share a great news to share with you all… starting this month, I am designing for Our Daily Bread Designs!

For this new release, I created 2 cards. On my first card, I use the Jesus Loves You Stamp/Die Duos, Snow Crystals dies, Snowflake Season Collection Paper Pad, Fun & Fancy Folds – Center Step Card, Double Stitched Rectangles Dies, and Rectangles Dies:
Using my WRMK Evolution Advanced, I die-cut and embossed the pieces. For the word Jesus and the Star, I die-cut them 5 times and stacked them together with glue pen to create thicker chipboard. Sentiment I stamped with Versafine Onyx Black on one of the beautiful Snowflake Season Collection papers. I finished the card with some gold sequins.
The ODBD dies are not online for die-cutting, but also for embossing and stenciling. Check out the details on the die-cuts after embossing:
I diecut a black cardstock with the double stitched rectangles and rectangles dies to create the chalkboard window. Then I cut out a piece of black cardstock for the chalkboard background where also I stamped and heat-embossed the light strings from Merry & Bright clear stamp set using Ranger White embossing powder. After that, I colored the light bulbs with my Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils.
Aftercoloring, I added some White Archival ink on the panel with sponge to create the chalkboard look. Then I finished the card with some clear gems.
Here are the new stamps, die sets and paper collection that I used on my cards today:
