Hello! I am back today with one of the best tricks for creating more than one card at a time… a split card technique.

I am always looking for ways to make better use of the time I have to create cards. This usually means making more than one card at a time! Be sure to watch the video to see how I split a large piece into two cards with borders.

  1. Such beautiful cards! Love all your amazing techniques for creating multiple cards.
    Thanks so much for sharing…

  2. Oh my goodness, Jennifer! You’ve done it again!! This is ingenious and absolutely brilliant! Why didn’t I think of it? LOL Gorgeous cards and another awesome release from Altenew!! You are BLESSING!

  3. Are you growing your canine family or did something happen to Foxy? (We have 3 and adopted two new rescues last summer after years of looking.) Just a bit worried.

  4. Oh sis I love your cards and videos but I have lost my internet😭 is it possible for a picture post like are you stamping in center then cutting or cut then stamp? 🌹❤️

  5. Hi Jennifer, Your cards are beautiful and ingenious. Hope you and your family are staying well. I was wondering if you stopped allowing favorites on your blog? I can’t seem to find the little star icon anymore? Thanks.

  6. Did I miss something. Been trying to add to my favorites but for the life of me I can not find the heart icon I have used before. Have bookmarks replaced favorites? How can I easily see all my past favorites. Love you videos and helpful tips. Your cards are beautiful. Keep up the great job!

  7. I love these beautiful cards, and really like this technique. I want to save this as a favorite, but there isn’t a link to do that. I casked the question how to add to favorites and it says to click on the heart, but there isn’t one. I used to do this all the time in the past. I haven’t been on your website a lot lately, and things have changed. I liked the list of products the way they used to be, with the picture rather than just the name, because you now have to click on it and open it to see what the product is, or which stamp set it is.

  8. Oh goodness, I apologize, my error. I am logged back in and didn’t realize it but the products list is just as it used to be. I don’t know where I was before when I didn’t see it, perhaps it was on You Tube after watching the video. 🙂

  9. Thanks for another great video! Can’t wait to try this tonight. I really needed some inspiration so thank you!

  10. Wow, these are gorgeous! I wasn’t going to get that Lily die, but dang, that’s my favorite, and the colors you’ve used look close to a stargazer lily. Love your cards and ideas!

  11. Great idea for making and sending lots of cards to friends and family that are lonesome. Nice to get a beautiful card in the mail instead of bills and junk mail.

  12. Jennifer, I love your split card technique and beautiful colors that you have used. Do you make your envelopes, I have never tried that but think the cards are beautiful with matching envelopes.

  14. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful ideas and thoughtful approach. Your cards are so lovely!

  15. I love all of your videos, & try to save them all for future reference. However, just recently I can not find the yellow heart (add to your favorites) Icon. I am logged in & on your Blog Posts. The green star doesn’t show up either (so I can find My Favorites) next to the social Icons at the top. Just wondering what I’m doing wrong, or did you change your page? thanks for any help you can give me!

  16. Jennifer I love watching your video’s. I think I spend more time watching your video’s than actually creating cards! I fit reading your blog in between lunch breaks at work, and evenings after the kids go to bed! They are always so inspiring. And I learn so much! I don’t know how you find the time to make all those cards and with a new puppy! This technique I find particularly awesome, as it looks so quick to do by making multiple cards at once. I love the floral boarders they are so pretty!

I love the floral boarders they are so pretty! The layered die with the lily’s was my favourite! Although, I image that would be time consuming putting all those flowers together.

  18. Hi Jennifer!
    These cards are glorious! I absolutely love these vibrant and beautiful cards! The Altenew colored inks look truly wonderful here, too! I will attempt to make cards similar to these later this week. One question please, about how large are your Altenew floral stamps please? I don’t want to go too big or to small and end up with a lot of blank cartoon! I’m so excited to try it! Thank you!

    Also, I visit here late into the night, on my phone. Is there a way to enlarge the font in the comment section in particular? I can not see any of my typed words–so I do not know whether it is packed with typos or not! I apologize if there are some!

  19. You are soo creative! I am amazed every ,time I watch you create. Love what you did with this release, had to go buy the flowers and that mega brush set. It look amazing with your technique. If I win I’ll just get some other wonderful item on my wish list.

  20. Love the card designs. Thanks for another great technique.
    And I am sure I am not the only one: I would love to see your new puppy! 😉

  21. Beautiful cards, love this technique for two-for-one cards and thanks for tips on using MISTI for lots of multiples.

  22. Love these time-saving tricks. There are times where i have to make a large number of cards, but still want them all to loom like they were each made separately. This will do the trick!

  23. Fabulous cards, Jennifer, as always! I love the ones with the black strips – it just takes them up a notch in my opinion.

  24. Gorgeous cards Jennifer and great technique. Sometimes I want to use larger stamps but they don’t always look so nice on a card, to split cards is the answer.
    Thank you so much for sharing, stay safe and have a wonderful day.

  25. You often mention taking your coloring along to a ball game or…
    Do you have certain things you take with you?
    Have you made up some sort of kit?
    I’d love to do something like that.

  26. Wow! Another fantastic technique and a great time saver if you need to make more than one card — something I do regularly. Also a great way to stretch our stamps and dies. I love all the cards you made but the way you used this technique to make the cards using the wreath stamp was mind blowing. Thanks!

  27. LOVED THE SPLIT CARD TECHNIQUE!!!!! JUST BOUGHT 2 OF THE SETS YOU SHOW ABOVE. SO NOW I’VE GOT A FEW SPECTACULAR CARDS TO CASE. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR INSPIRATION. IT’S JUST MY STYLE!!!!!!!

  28. Love your videos Jennifer. You explain everything so perfectly and your cards are always beautiful and modern. Love your work. Thanks for sharing as I am new to crafting.

  29. Thank you so very much for all the work you do to bring us all the video content and teach us such fabulous card making ideas. You have brought me to a new level of card making and I am so very grateful for you.
