I do!! (I’m sure you know that by now!). Anyway, today I have two cards for you – though they are made together using the 2 for 1, or Split Card or …. not really sure what it is called … technique.
I had seen this technique a while ago but didn’t have a chance to try it out until a few weeks ago when getting ready for my Facebook Live. The gist of the technique, take a larger sheet of cardstock – for this I used 6 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ sheet of Whisper White – then stamp up the middle. Cut the card in half at 3 1/4″ and you have 2 card fronts!
I decided to do this with the Emboss Resist technique – so I stamped the leaves from the Forever Fern bundle in Versamark and Embossed with Whisper White Embossing powder. I then sponged Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze inks – wiping off the ink over the embossed leaves after each color. The final step was to stamp the flowers, smaller leaves and splatter stamps in Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry. The sentiments are stamped in Cajun Craze.
I matted the stamped panels on Early Espresso measuring 3 3/8″ x 4 5/8″. I tied Early Espresso Faux Suede Ribbon and Copper Ribbon together around this layer.
The Cajun Craze mat layer is embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. The base is Thick Whisper White Card Stock measuring 4 1/4 x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and folded in half.
I love how these cards turned out! If you are looking for a quick technique for mass producing, try this 2-For-1 layout – you can just use stamps and inks – no need to Emboss Resist if time is an issue.
Here’s a look at the second card:
Here’s a video showing how the cards were made:
I hope you’ll give this technique a try!
