Enjoy all the festive inspiration using For the Love of ODBD embossing plates!

I'm the first stop coming from the Our Daily Bread Design's Blog today...thanks so much for joining in the fun!

I'm using ODBD's Vintage Border Embossing Plate today. I ran the plate through my Cuttlebug, then used the Direct To Paper (DTP) technique to enhance the texture and embossed pattern. The DTP technique is simply running an ink pad directly over the embossed pattern to make the embossing stand out.



I used the embossing plate on kraft paper, then DTP'd black ink over it.

A Bible verse benediction from Our Daily Bread Design's "Scripture Series 1" is the sentiment, with touches of grosgrain ribbon and Prima bling from my stash making up the remainder of the card.

Head over to Tosh's fabulous blog next! I cannot wait to see what she has to present!

Enjoy your day!
