Top Split Card

I know you’re probably thinking, really Gloria, another Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper card…….well……yes, I love this DSP, and I truly believe you are going to love it too. 

Isn’t this card cool?  It’s super easy to make, and I am going to show you how, just hang with me for a bit.

It closes up and fits in one of our regular envelopes.  Not bulky at all (well, at least the one I made is not, just added some pearls), so you should have no problem adding regular postage.   There is just enough space on the inside to write your message, yet still has a bit of pizzazz with the fun fold.

So as you can see, I cut my Rich Razzleberry Cardstock base just like you would any card, at 8-1/2″ X 5-1/2″, then score at 4-1/4″.  Now the fun begins, I added a piece of the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper on top of the Rich Razzleberry Cardstock “before” I cut the splits on the card.  Once I secured the DSP, I placed my card base in my Stampin’ Trimmer and cut each end of the card at 1-1/4″ on each side.  You will have three piece of cardstock dangling, it’s good, don’t worry, you are doing this correctly.  Next adhere the 3″ X 4-1/4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock to the center panel “before” you glue down the side panels.

Once you have adhered the Whisper White Panel, adhere the 2 cut 1-1/4″ pieces down as shown above.  You will then score the center panel at 2-1/8″, and you have completed the fun fold.  Super easy, right?  Now, add a little something to the front panel to ensure the panel with the crease will stand up when you open the card and pull it back.  Here I used the flower from the Sweet Cake Framelits dies, and leaves.  The sentiment is from the Love What You Do Stamp Set, and finally I added some of the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.  You’re done!

I hope I have inspired you to go create something beautiful, and share it with someone you love (or even just like, wink, wink).
