Hello friends! Welcome to the ODBD October release! I cannot believe it is fall already, with Christmas just around the corner!!! I am so happy that at ODBD we did not just hop right over fall and into Christmas. We have a gorgeous sunflower set that I adore! I love fall decorating, and the cool crisp feel of fall evenings. I love the colors of fall, and this release really captures that feel. However, we do have some new toys to get your Christmas card production under way as well!

the ODBD Blog on October 3rd so be sure to check back there to see if
Now for the details on my cards. The card above is a very simple card to make and lies pretty flat for mailing. For this card I used the new Merry Christmas Caps Die
, the new Rounded Rectangles
and Double Stitched Rounded Rectangles dies
, the new Pine Branches Dies
, the new Christmas Coordinating 2015 paper
, as well as the past release Christmas 2015 paper
, Lavish Layers Dies
, Peaceful Poinsettia Dies
, and Pinecones Dies
. I used some brushed gold paper for my letters, pine boughs and the backing of the pine cones. The printed paper is from the 2015 Christmas Pack, and the green mat behind the ivory layer is from the Coordinating 2015 pack. I added one gold pearl.
For the card below, I used one of ODBD's Book Fold card kits
for my card base. I cut layers of patterned paper from the gorgeous new Follow the Son Paper pack
and the new Fall Favorites Paper Pack
for the inside as well as the front. I stamped two of the beautiful Sunflower images from the Be a Sunflower Set
, then colored with Copics and die cut with the matching Sunflower Die
. The sentiment is stamped from the same set, and cut with the new Rounded Rectangles dies
For the front, I used one of my colored and die cut sunflowers mounted on some black corrugated card stock, which I layered on one of my favorite papers from the Follow the Son Paper Pack. Some twine and a little button finished it off. I hope you like it!
