Our Daily Bread Designs November 2012 Release Blog Hop

Hello blog friends!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs Nov. Release Blog Hop!   If you got here from Angie’s blog, you are in the right place!  If not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog so you don’t miss anything!

For my project I’m using one of the new sets called Cardinal Ornament.  It’s set up to be a clever ornament but can as easily be used as a tag.  I cut out a gable box using my digital cutter and colored the tag (with my Copic markers that I haven’t touched in forever), stamping a sentiment in the open space.  I cut it out using Spellbinders™ Standard Circles LG and Standard Circles SM and sandwiched a tag from Spellbinders™ Back to Basics Tags in between the two circles.
