Creating the Simplest Most Beautiful Card with Stampin'Up! Split Card Texture Dies

A Beautiful Design Using Stampin'Up! Split Card Dies and Hand-penned Bundle

Today I'll show you how to create A Beautiful Design Using Stampin'Up! Split Card Dies and Hand-Penned Bundle. The new die set, Split Card Textures, contains 2 stunning corner designs cutting through the top layer of cardstock revealing the underlayer...this gives  unlimited combinations & choices to make.

Here's the die set.


Today we're using the 'plaid' style...

The color wash under the die cut is from the gorgeous  Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper. We've been so entranced with the beautiful rose designs in this set that we almost miss the beauty on the 'other' side.  We use this blend of color to select the flower colors. Since our base is white you can select any of the other fantastic blends for more variety.

The die simply sits in the corner of the top layer & after running through the die machine it's a breeze to flip out the waste pieces.

We added a bit more interest by then putting the die cut layer through the Timeworn Type embossing folder--it adding a touch of texture but staying in the background.

I'll give you step by step directions below followed by the supply list.

Stop back Thursday and we'll be using the other die--one of the simplest (and most beautiful) cards you'll ever create!
