A Glorious window card - Christmas in July Day 2

Good Morning!

Hopefully you're day has started well. Today I'm featuring a die called Gloriuos at the Penny Black Blog. When I got this die, I fell in love with it at first sight. For this guest design work, I wanted to use it a bit differently - I used it to make a window for my card. And, I'm very pleased how this card came together. I just love the effect what the shadows create for the image inside of the card. Here is a sneak from today's card, I hope to see you at the Penny Black's blog to see the whole card.

I filmed while created, if you wish to see the how-to- video, you can watch it here or in HD in Youtube.
