Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I am here today with another video and two card samples for you today! I’m showcasing the Split Card Technique, but with a twist!! These fun cards are quite simple to make as you’ll see in the video … I will also be sharing my measurements and tips with you.
Thank you for joining me, sit back relax and enjoy … My first card is simple and straight to the point, a Sympathy card. I chose the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper. My twist on these cards is that the designer paper will “peek” through the cardstock!
I’m using Early Espresso for my card base and my tree and then my “split” piece is Mossy Meadow. My designer paper and “split” cardstock are both layered onto a piece of Basic White … this makes it a little sturdier and allows the little touch of white to show through (you can hide it if you prefer) I think it helps to showcase the designer paper by bringing the white out in the designer paper.
The greeting is from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set and is stamped in Early Espresso…. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the Mossy Meadow pieces which gives our “split” added dimension, it also create a cool effect when you glue your tree between the two layers.
Card Dimensions ….
- Early Espresso Card base: 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.
- Basic White: 4″ x 5-1/4″
- Mossy Meadow: 4″ x 4″ *Cut approx. 3″ down on left side and 1″ from top on right side. Watch the video to see an easy way to measure this piece!
- Beauty of the Earth Designer Paper: 4″ x 4″… no waste! You’ll get 9 cards from 1 sheet of 12 x 12 Designer paper!!
- Early Espresso for the die cut tree
- Basic White: 4″ x 5-1/4″ for this inside of the card.
My next card is done in the horizontal / landscape layout and highlights the Pansy Petals Designer paper and allows for more of the designer paper to show through …
This card uses a full background of paper and a smaller split piece to show more designer paper off. I will post the dimensions below for this card as well. Our base is Blackberry Bliss and my “split” piece is Basic White.
My greeting comes from the Lovely You stamp set and is stamped in Blackberry Bliss … then you will emboss your piece with the Tasteful Textile 3-D Embossing Folder. Now we cut! On this one we’re cutting from corner to corner (even though I demonstrated differently in the video …. sorry!!) These pieces were also “popped” up with Stampin’ Dimensionals and applied to the front of your card leaving a border around the edges and a split in the middle.
The sweet pansies were die cut from another pattern of the Pansy Petals Designer Series paper, and then I used the In-Color Jewels to embellish my flowers and greeting.
Card Dimensions ….
- Blackberry Bliss Card base: 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.
- Pansy Petals Designer Paper: 5 1/4″ x 4″.
- Basic White (for split): 3-1/4″ x 3-3/4″ (this allow for the frame around the outside)
- Basic White: 5 1/4″ x 4″ (for the inside of your card)
