I've been cards with my friend Michele aka I Card Everyone again, and this time our challenge was still to use the split four technique, but also to incorporate cover plates and to use my set Layered Citrus.
I started by building my split four sheet using the solid images from the set. The leaves and stalks were made using the rind and peel stamps (I stretched the rind slightly to make it straighter).
On the next one I chose the other words from the Happy Birthday set in colours that matched the flowers on this section, then centred the panel on matching card.
Time to use the cover plates - this first one is Wonky Stitched Grid Texture Cover Plate. I used a crease mat so that it got a quilted effect rather than a cut effect. It actually feels as 'quilty' as it looks!
In order to get second-generation images, I stamped off first on spare card. By thinking about how I was stamping off, I ended up with panels that I'll be able to use to make even more cards - win, win!
I hope this helps you to look at some of your stamps in a different way, to see how you can stretch your supplies.
