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.

    Timeless! What a gorgeous card. Beautiful design.

  2. This is so clean looking Julie – love the layers (the double bevel frame) and that fancy edge die cut along the bottom – so much work but so worth it!

  3. Julie I love this and your window is amazing ! Absolutely Gorgeous! Yes, I agree funny how we both used the same sentiment. You wont believe this but a year ago to the date I made almost the same card , you can look it up on my blog Winter Homestead. You and I were so on the same page . Great minds think alike! Of course yours has way more gorgeous detail but kinda scary how much the same they are. 🙂

  4. I love the sentiment as much as you do! Great picture above and die cutting below. So elegant!

  5. Fab die cutting on this beautiful Christmas card!

  6. Julie- this is gorgeous!! Love the window you created and the image in black/white-perfectly accents the sentiment!! The edge die is fantastic!!

  7. Beautiful card! I love the edge detail and that sweet image too!
