Fence Me In: A Split-Front Card

Split-front cards are trending in paper crafting, and the Sending Smiles bundle makes today’s card a sunny one!

I’d been seeing these pretty cards and knew it was time to jump in, so today I taught you how with a video. Will you try this unique style of a split-front card?

The Sending Smiles stamps and Sending Dies WILL be carrying over to the 2023-2024 catalog in May, but they won’t be bundled together with a discount, as they are now!

Have a ball making your own Fence-Post cards! Here are the supplies you need for this version:

Floating Circle Card

When you have thin strips of Designer Series Paper you don’t want to throw away, just glue them to a window sheet and die cut a “floating circle”! Want to see more? Watch my Facebook Live video from 10/17/22 and see how easy this card was to create!

We stampers love a little shine and shimmer, and that’s just what you’ll get in the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper pack…this angle shows how each double-sided paper has one metallic side and one pretty printed side, and you really can’t bear to let any go to waste:

Pick a small sentiment to stamp on one of your non-metallic strips. Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals are easy to hide behind the strips, and lift your circle off the card to make it look like it’s floating! Add a floral image and you have a simply sensational card.

While this DSP was created to coordinate stunningly with the Splendid Thoughts bundle (see my original card below the supply list), I used the Sending Smiles bundle for my video demonstration – the sentiments in the Sending Smiles stamps fit on the strips perfectly.

This is one to try immediately in your stamp studio!

Sunshine and Songbird Mashup

Often I get stuck on trying to ONLY use the stamps in one stamp set, but this card was inspired by the sensational Rays of Light background stamp and a few extra songbirds I had left over from cards I had made for a swap with my team…it’s a MASHUP of 3 different new products and just makes me smile!

The Opal Rounds embellishments add just the right amount of light-catching sparkle.

Do your part to brighten the world…mail a hand-stamped card just because!
