Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I’m going to share more of the cards that I made using the Split Card Technique. This technique is quick -n- easy on only uses a 4″ x 4″ piece of designer paper … NO Waste! I am also keeping the video on my blog so you can watch it again. Did you know that if you use your mouse to “hover” over my little picture – you can subscribe to my YouTube Channel right away … How cool is that!
OK … Lets start with the first card (remember to watch the video to learn how/where to cut) … this is the most simple of the three cards. I just cut my Paper Blooms designer paper and attached it directly to the card. Then using the “Ornate Thanks” stamp set, I stamped the Thank You in Soft Sea Foam and then the coordinating sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy … both colors are in our designer paper (No Guessing) so easy!
Our next card adds in a piece of Basic White cardstock … it’s cut 4″ x 5-1/4″ and I layered my Paper Blooms Designer paper and attached it to the top and the bottom, leaving only the center exposed. I stamped my greeting exactly the same on this one as I did the last … just to show the difference. It does lighten up the card a little and makes the greeting pop more.
What is fun about these cards is that each one is slightly different … the Paper Blooms has a scattered pattern of flowers, you will find other papers that will allow them all to look a like.
On our last card …. I am using the Basic White cardstock again, but this time I’ve let some of it exposed on the top and the bottom of the card. It creates a nice balance. To add some texture to the card, I wrapped some white Bakers Twine around it and tied a double bow. My greeting is stamped in Soft Sea Foam and comes from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set.
The video will show you two ways to cut your 12 x 12 designer paper and then give you samples so you can get a better picture of what I want to show you. Sit back … relax … enjoy …
I hope you enjoyed getting a close up look at these cards and another look at the video. I love to hear when you are excited about a new technique, thank you!
