Julie Warner –
The only tricky part about this card was the framed window. And it was really only a little tricky because I resized the opening. First, I temporarily attached the white layer on top of the red layer then I used the smaller of 2 Quickutz long rectangles to cut the opening thru both layers. Per the resizing tutorial (just click on the word above) I made it half again longer. Then I took the two layers apart and used the next larger rectangle to make the window larger on the white layer (again resizing it).

Julie Warner –

Since the focus is on the sentiment, I stamped the winter scene in black and left it uncolored. The greeting was stamped with red ink, except for the holly flourish on top. I wiped the red ink off and inked that part w/ black then added some color and a little stickles. I also added some stickles in areas on the scene. The bottom edges were cut with bracket border dies and the finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to stop by and see all of the Sentiment focus cards from the DT.
