I’ve been seeing some cards made with the Split Card technique recently and I think it’s pretty cool, so I tried it out! This technique works best with large, graphic stamps that you can layer up to create two cards at once.
Start with a piece of cardstock measuring 8 x 5.25″. Make light pencil marks on the cardstock at 4″ so you can see where the centre is. For this card I used Good Morning Magnolia and the coordinating Magnolia Memory dies, so I cut myself two masks with the large magnolia die before beginning to stamp.
Stamp your images down the centre of your cardstock, using the masks as necessary as you go so that you can create overlapping images. (For more on masking, see video here.)
Continue stamping to fill the centre of your cardstock, from top to bottom.
Colour your images if desired. Then, cut your cardstock down the centre at 4″.
Now you have two beautiful cardfronts (size 4 x 5.25″). Add a sentiment and finish your cards as desired.
Here are some more cards I made with the same technique. It was fun to play with different stamps and sentiments, and I especially enjoyed using one card front to create a vertical and one to create a horizontal card.
