Two Cards from One Panel

Hey, there! I'm all about getting more bang for your time when it comes to making cards! Today's technique will get you 2 cards super quickly! One original card - and a bonus card! And I'm using the cutest stamps and dies from Pink & Main

Look how cute those little bears from the Perfect Couple stamp set are! I love them!

Let's start with the card I had originally planned to make! I grabbed a bunch of different Distress Inks and the Herringbone stencil from Pink & Main and blended on my ink - lightest at the top and darkest at the bottom.

I stamped and colored the little bears in the hot air balloon from the Perfect Couple stamp set and die cut them out with the coordinating dies. I could have just glued the image onto the card like I usually would, but I wanted this to be a see through card just to add a bit of interest. So I used the coordinating die again to die cut right through the front of the card. Then I glued the die cut to the inside of the card.

Now you can see those cute bears from the front and they are inside as well! I stamped a sentiment and heart from the Perfect Couple stamp set and glued the banner onto the right side of my card.

But you better believe I wasn't going to let the piece I die cut from the front of my first card go to waste! Never! So I grabbed the same stamp from the Perfect Couple stamp set and lined it up on top of the die cut. And the best part - No coloring necessary!

I used some foam tape to pop up the die cut and stamped a coordinating sentiment right below it. I decided to use the GORGEOUS new Rose Gold Glossy Dots to accent the card! And boom! Two cards just like that!
