Feels Like Frost DSP Split Card
Updated: Nov 30, 2020
I adore Feels Like Frost designer series paper! It features photographic images on one side and silver and white patterns on the other. If you want quick yet gorgeous cards, make sure to use this DSP - and it is particularly striking when paired with the split card technique that is sweeping the papermaking world. The video tutorial is on YouTube here.
Aren't they amazing? And easier than they look. Below are the directions. Please watch my video on my YouTube channel - this is one of those cards that it is easier to see than to read.
Ingredients: Feels Like Frost DSP; coordinating DSP for the mat; whisper white cardstock for the card base (or whatever color you wish); Forever Greenery ribbons; a sentiment; a scrap piece of whisper white; a coordinating scrap of colored DSP; adhesive (I like liquid glue for this), Stampin' Dimensionals, and mini glue dots.; trimmer; paper snips.
Directions: cut a piece of whisper white cardstock in half horizontally, and score and fold in half horizontally again to create a 5 1/2"x 4 1/4" card base. Cut a piece of coordinating cardstock to to 5 1/4" x 4". Cut two pieces of Feels Like Frost DSP to 5"x3 1/2" (you need this to be a little narrower to be able to spread the pieces apart). Holding the two pieces of DSP together, with the outsides both facing out (so that the silver back sides are facing each other). Place the two pieces together into the trimmer, making sure that they are squared up. Place the top of the two DSP pieces along the edge of the trimmer, so that the top is close to the blade. You can place it so that the top right side is where the cut begins (like the two top right cards) or on the top edge towards the right side (like the other three cards). Angle the card slightly and cut. You will cut off a section from the right of the DSP. Put the DSP back into the trimmer and cut a second piece where the top is close to the first cut but it angles less sharply and the bottom is wider than the top. You now have enough pieces for two cards. Exchange the two middle pieces with each other. You now have, from left to right, front of DSP, back of other DSP, front of DSP. Glue the DSP to the coordinating cardstock. I like to glue the left side first, then the right side, then the middle. Stamp the sentiment on the scrap of whisper white cardstock, then adhere to the scrap of coordinating colored cardstock and cut, punch, or die cut it out. Adhere sentiment to the card using stampin' dimensionals, and add the ribbon with a glue dot.
