MAN I'm loving life this week! Nothing pressing on the calendar just chipping away at little things I want to get done in and amongst being Suzie homemaker - cooking, cleaning, baking. Add to that the beautiful winter we've had (I'm back to walking Koda in shoes … with no socks!) and the healthy living I'm into these days and I'm feeling ga-RATE!
Another thing on my "to-do" list was to post a tutorial for my Split Negative I created for my Technique Class last month. Ack! I just realized I didn't even post the CARD here yet! Well! Let's rectify THAT right now!! Here is the card ...
Isn't it great?? I LOVE how it turned out! So striking. The other thing I love is that it can be used for so many different occasions! Wedding, Birthday, Sympathy … virtually any occasion. My kind of card! It's certainly not a quick card. Easy … but not quick. Here's a photo tutorial for you.
Before anything else I started by punching out two roses from the Rose Garden Thinlet set. One in white and one in black.
I grabbed a standard Whisper White base and cut two mats - one in black and one in white - both measure 2" x 5 1/4". I used a post-it-note simply to hold the two mats together. This step is certainly not necessary. I just stuck them together with the note, turned the "now-one" mat over just so I could then take my punched out rose and see exactly where I would like it to be placed.
In the picture below I'm just showing you what I mean … When the two pieces are stud together I could lay the rose down on top of the mats to make sure it would fit.
