On Saturday I attended a great Stampin' Up workshop organised by the lovely Jill.   We received a stamp set with four small ink pads and a very comprehensive set of instructions for no less than eleven projects ranging from small boxes to cards, all using the same stamp set.  This is a good way of getting to know various ways in which stamps can be used to good effect and I came away with lots of ideas.  I managed to get most of the projects done on the day but this is one of them which I decided to finish at home having thought I'd like to emboss the top layer of white.  There are two layers of white card and a 'gap' is cut into one of the layers and the flowers are stamped onto the bottom layer filling the 'gap'.  Another flower and some leaves were stamped and fussy cut to add once the card was assembled.  Sentiment was stamped before embossing the top layer.  I expect you will be seeing some of the other projects at some point so watch this space!

The original idea for this 'split' card apparently came from Old Stables Crafts where I imagine you can find how it was made.  I'm certainly aiming to check out this link when I have some time to spare.
