Today I’m posting both Day 6 & 7 of the 30 Cards in 30 Days Challenge including the Spilt Card Tutorial. I streamed the tutorial for Day 6 last night and wanted you to be able to refer back to the measurements. Card 7 will just an image with an Instagram link as it’s a pretty straightforward card. It’s at the bottom of this post.
30 Cards in 30 Days Challenge – Split Card Tutorial
While I don’t make that many altered cards, this style of Split Card is one of my favorites that I’ve seen. It’s so easy to cut the pieces, it doesn’t confuse me, and the end result is so satisfying to look at. Pair with the retired Oh So Ombre DSP or any other of your favorite DSP to create a stunning card. There are so many variations of split cards, but so far this is the only one I’ve done. I’m thinking that I have a newfound love of fancy cuts though. Perhaps you will see more of them from me in the future. Follow along in my video tutorial streamed live last night on my YouTube Channel and find all the measurements below. Feel free to upload your card all month long in my Facebook Group too!

Split Card Instructions
(All Products linked Below)
Cutting your cardstock:
- All instructions will be based on making one card rather than 2 as shown in the video
- Cut card base in Granny Apple Green. Your top folding card should measure 4-1/4 X 5-1/2
- One piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock to 3-1/4 X 4-1/4 (you will use this later for die-cutting)
- 2 pieces of Rococo Rose to 1-1/4 X 4 and one piece to 5-1/4 X 4 (the larger of these is for the inside of the card)
- Cut the Designer Series Paper of your choice to 1 X 3-3/4
- White cardstock pieces should measure 3-11/16 X 2-1/2 for the card front, and one-piece 5 X 3-3/4 for the inside of your card.
- 1 piece of scrap white cardstock big enough to stamp the largest tulip bulb on.
- Now that you have all your pieces cut it’s time to create your Split Cut card. You can lay your card flat and cut it at the 7″, and the 9-1/2″ marks. Or you can lay it flat and cut a 1-1/2 strip off the bottom and cut it again 1-1/2″ inch below the scored fold line for the card. If you are having trouble see timestamp 20:26 in the tutorial video.
Stamping, punching & Die-Cutting:
- Stamp the large tulip, stem, and 2 leaves on the white cardstock that measures 3-11/16 X 2-1/2
- Repeat the above process on the white piece of cardstock for the inside of your card except for this time, use the small tulip bulb.
- Stamp the large tulip bulb on a scrap piece of cardstock. Then cut this bulb out with your coordinating Tulip Builder Punch.
- With the largest rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies, cut the rectangle out on the Granny Apple Green cardstock that measures 3-1/4 X 4-1/4.
Assembly & Final Touches:
- Layer all your strips from smallest to largest onto the card. If you follow the example card you should have no trouble.
- Using a couple of dimensionals add the single tulip bulb overtop of the tulip on the card front.
- Once your tulip card front is mounted on the Granny Apple Green Cardstock place 3 dimensionals along the top and bottom on the back. Line up the bottom strip and tape it in place with purple tape so it doesn’t move while you place the tulip card front in the center of the card. The card front holds the bottom piece on. If you place it directly in the center of your card it will hide the stamping on the inside.
- Add some ribbon and some gems and voila! You’re all done 💖
