Split Negative

Well, I haven't had much time for stamping or scrapbooking lately, but I wanted to share a card that I did in the past with you.

This is the split negative technique. It's really easy to do. You emboss on colored cardstock with white ink and on white cardstock with your choice of color. This can be using either colored embossing powder or colored SU Craft ink and clear embossing powder. Once the embossing has been done both images need to be cut in exactly the same spot. In this instance, the tree was cut on the diagonal. You could also cut perpendicular or paralell through the middle of the tree. When you have the two parts, line them up so they match - use double sided tape on the back to keep them together - mount on a matching piece of cardstock and finish your card as desired.

It's that easy! Hope you enjoy this technique.
