Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs October release! My cards today focus on the fabulous papers and dies. My favorite this month are the Stitched Leaves - they are so versatile! Though you might think their normal use is for the fall season, by die cutting them out of silver foil and pairing them with the rich burgundy paper from the new Christmas Coordinating 2015 (which coordinates with the Christmas Collection 2015 paper pad) I made a Christmas shaker card.
My second card uses the leaves in more traditionally. I cut them out of watercolor paper and used reinkers to color them - I've found reinkers to be the quickest and most vibrant way to color the leaves since the inks are so saturated. I also used the new Double Stitched Rectangle Dies for a fun window to my thank you card.
