Split Negative Christmas Cards

Continuing on with the Christmas theme, here's a way of creating two cards at the same time which are the same, but different.  The technique here is called Split Negative, and you need two colours of embossing powder to match 2 colours of card stock.


The Christmas Tree stamp from the Snow Swirled stamp set has been stamped twice with Versamark ink, on Whisper White and Always Artichoke card stock.  The image on the white card was embossed with green embossing powder, and the image on the green card was embossed with white embossing powder.  Then each image was cut in half and swapped so that you get half green on white and half white on green.  The same technique has been used for the greeting, which was then punched with the Large Decorative Label punch.



The card also uses some retired Christmas paper that coordinates well with the Cherry Cobbler red card base.  A bit of Whisper White taffeta ribbon finishes off the card.
