Hello stampers and happy Monday to you! Today I am sharing a split front card with you created by Bianca Rebel. Bianca is a Dutch demonstrator who lives in the beautiful city of Dordrecht. I am just as excited to show you her card as I am to share some information about her city.
Bianca’s Split Front Card
I really have no idea if I am giving the proper name to this type of card, but it seems logical to me. When you see the video that I did showing how I do this card, I think you will agree that it is actually quite simple. The split front card is a great way to showcase your patterned paper. Let’s take a look!
Here is a close up so you can see how nice the layers look. I am very impressed with how perfectly straight Bianca stamped her sentiment. This paper was part of the Saleabration Coordination products last year and I believe it was called Painted Seasons, but I could very well be wrong.
My Version of the Split Front Card
I thought it would be nice to see this style of card with current products. The paper is called World of Good and the saying comes from Here’s A Card.
The best way to learn how to make this card is to watch my video. There is always a bit of chit chat since it is my Facebook live video, but you can fast forward to the parts you like!
Dordrecht, the Netherlands
Now I get to tell you a little bit about the city of Dordrecht. Bianca was so very helpful as to give me some information too. Bianca tells me that the door to her apartment building is right beside this amazing poffertje place. A poffertje is kind of like a mini pancake that is puffed up and hollow inside similar to a sweet pita but then resembling a crêpe. They are really delicious. I want to tell you more about Dordrecht, but I have an “afspraak” to meet my cousin Robert in a half hour, so I will edit my post later to add this information. That way I can cross at least one thing off my list of things to do!! I hope you have a super day and thank you to Bianca for this great card.
I’m back! Here is a great website that tells a fun story about Dordrecht. Just get past the first paragraph where there seems to be a technological issue. Here are a few photos as well that I found. I really want to go back and do a walking tour of this great city which is celebrating its 800th birthday this year. Here is just one picture that you might enjoy!
