Christmas Cards

I recently checked out the Split 4 technique after seeing several people do it.  Here's one of the panels from my first attempt made into a card.  I wasn't that happy with the other panels.
The branches & pinecones are from Hero Arts Happy Holly Days & the sentiment is from a very old HA sampler set used for classes at stamp stores.  The panel was dry embossed, die cut & matted with a textured red scrap.  I added Christmas Red & Stardust Stickles.
I'm entering ABNH & Die Cut Divas.

I did another Split 4 page--this time with images from Uniko's Season of Beauty.  The little dots are from Gina K & PTI.
This is a fun technique & I plan to try again.  Maybe I'll end up with 4 cards, eventually--haha!  I'm entering Time Out.

Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

  3. They look so pretty, Greta. My first attempt didn't go well either. Some panels had more and some not enough. Loll had a great idea to outline the panels so you could see where you are stamping. Hope that helps.

  5. They both look great Greta...remember there is no reason you cannot add some stamping after you cut them apart to make them more to your liking.

  6. The stamping and colours you've used on the first looks so pretty with the dry embossing and the second one is Fabulous. Great idea that CAT suggested too x.

  15. I hope you find a use for the other bits of your panel, otherwise it's not such a time saver! I hope to try it sometime too, but haven't got there yet. This card did turn out very well though. I love the delicate leaves and the embossed background xx
