ODBD- New June Release

Welcome Back! It's time to BLOG-HOP for the reveal of the New June Releases at ODBD, and this month, we are celebrating Dad!
Our Daily Bread designs
Using the New Stamp and Tool Dies, here's my first "Happy Father's Day" card
I've cut these tools out several times and layered them for dimension. Also used silver brads for extra metal. Aren't these tool so fun? 

My second card was created with the same metallic cardstock, but with white embossing, sections, some blue and gray sponging/distressing and some paper piercing.
