I wanted to try something a little different for my card…a divided panel using the greeting as the bridge. I’ve seen it done using die cut letters, so I gave it a try using a stamped greeting. It worked pretty just took a little fancy fussy cutting. The large panels were die cut then I determined how much to remove behind where the greeting would fit. After removing this piece, I attached the top & bottom sections to the greeting. The candy canes were also fussy cut & added to the die cut ovals.

The little ornament topper was die cut & I used Copics to color a circle for the ornament then punched it w/ a circle punch. 

These are the Copics I used.
