Aloha and welcome to Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop! The theme this month is birthdays!
I’ve made a Split Front Card using a fun set called A Cut Above.
I really enjoyed coloring this guy with my Stampin’ Blends!
See that guy mowing the lawn? He looks exactly like my yard guy, Gus!! I’m in the process of making a batch of cards for him to send out!
Have you ever made a Split Front Card? It’s really very simple!
Split Front Card
- Start with Bumblebee cardstock 11″ x 4 1/4″. Score it at 5 1/2″ & fold it to form card base. Burnish with a bone folder.
- Place the card base on the Paper Trimmer (landscape) on the long side so that the edge is at 2 1/8″. Bring the cutting blade up from the lower edge; stop when the notch on the blade reaches the score line.
- Turn CS 1/4 turn and cut down the center of the card score line, removing the top part of the card.
- For the card inside: Cut Basic White CS 5 1/4″ x 2″. Stamp sentiment then glue to inside bottom of card. Cut DSP 5 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ and glue to top inside of card.
- Card outside: DSP strip 5 1/2″ x 1/2″. Glue onto top of front opening. *Basic White CS 4″ x 2 1/4″. Stamp image & color with Stampin’ Blends. Cut mat 4 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ and glue to back of white piece. Glue bottom of this piece to card front. *You could use any shape for the card front.
