This week my colour choice has been nice, bright colours.
The split card technique lends itself to these bright colours.
Have you tried the Split Card Technique before?
I was inspired for this card by the recent post by Gail Ellis.
I used Berry Burst for this technique -but you can use any bright colour.
The best way to successfully do this technique unfortunately makes use of the now retired Stamparatus.
You will need to heat emboss the stamp of your choice in white on the Berry Burst cardstock.
Then repeat the exact same design using the matching ink on Basic White cardstock.
Cut both pieces the exact same size -mine was cut at 1½”.
Gail suggested then cutting the same size piece of white cardstock as the pieces you stamped.
You can then mix the cut pieces and glue them onto the base.
This way you know they will fit perfectly.
I am going to be teaching this technique at my card class later this month -if you’re reading this locally, consider joining us!
In my excitement to try out this technique, I completely forgot to matte this design.
But I still think it’s pretty striking and you can decide to matte it or leave it the way I’ve done it here.
Have a closer look at how the other card looks when glued together:
You can have so much fun using this technique.
You don’t have to stick with embossing powders and inks either.
I might decide to try two different embossing powders next time.
The options are endless!!
What do you think of the Split Card technique?
And your thoughts on Berry Burst as a colour?
