Guest DT Contest at The Cutting Edge


There is a new challenge called The Cutting Edge Challenge and they are celebrating their opening with a Guest Designer Contest. You know I love me my die cuts and I was intrigued by the window in the inspiration picture:
I wondered what I would like to see through my window, and I chose a beautiful peaceful Clear Views transparency from The Mark-It Place. I die cut the window (Poppy Stamps), branch and bird (Memory Box), and the "hello" from Paper Smooches.


But look- this card is a version of a tri-shutter with some slightly different folds to show the window scene. I embossed the whole card with a Sizzix embossing folder that looks like bricks so the front really looks like the front of a house. Here is what the inside looks like opened up:
I added a piece of dp with the sentiment from Repeat Impressions, CTMH and  another blue bird. The white piece at the bottom is to write a personal message and sign the card. I must give credit to this blogger and her card that inspired me to try this tri-shutter with a window.

I am entering this card in the Guest DT Challenge at The Cutting Edge and the Anything Goes challenge at 613 Avenue Create.
