Healing Hugs Split Image Technique

I created this card for the #AWLSU057 Casing The Catty Challenge this week, I have used the stamp set Healing Hugs with the Split Image Technique. This is an awesome technique as you are making 2 cards at the same time, it is also a wonderful technique if you need to make a heap of cards at once to post out. I have also used the masking technique as I wanted my flowers to overlap and go under each other. Firstly, you start off with a piece of cardstock that measures 8.5 inches x 5.5 inches and on the long side (8.5 inch side) draw a line from the 4.25 inch mark down the short side. Then on this line you will stamp your images or place your die cuts making sure you go over both sides of the line. When you have finished cut down the 4.25 inch line and you have two card mats all ready to glue to create two cards.

The Challenge



First Start with your piece of cardstock 8.5 inches x 5.5 inches and draw a line down the center at 4.25 inches and stamp on the line and either side of the line, then you cut down that center line.
