Split Panel Rainbow Cards with Channin

Hello friends!! It's Channin here with a couple of colorful split panel cards to share!! The split panel technique a fun and unique technique which the MISTI is an absolutely essential tool because your two stamped panels must be identical except for color variances. 

To create these cards I first positioned all the letters I needed for "celebrate" over the center line of a white slimline panel (3 5/8" x 8 1/2"). Because "e" is repeated multiple times I used place holder letters, letters that are about the same shape and size as the "e" (o, c), in place of the e. 

Once I had the letters positioned, I then picked them up with my MISTI and then removed the "e". I removed the "e'' so I could easily ink up the "C" because I want to ink each letter in a different color. 

I stamped the "C" on my first panel in my light pink (Ballet Slipper) and then I stamped the "C" on my second panel in my dark pink (Sparkling Rose). 

Next, I repositioned my "e" on my MISTI, removed the "C" and "l", and then stamped the "e" in a light red on my first panel and a darker red on my second. 

I will basically repeat this process till I have all my letters stamped and end up with a light rainbowed celebrate and a darker rainbowed celebrate. 

Now that my panels are stamped I then used my paper trimmer to cut my panels in half which is at 1 13/16" for the slimline panel. Next, adhered one of the light celebrate halves with one of the dark celebrate halves onto another slimline panel. I then trimmed the panel down and adhered it onto a gray slimline card base (7 1/4" x 8 1/2", scored at 3 5/8").

I then stamped and white heat embossed a couple sub sentiments with the Simply Sentiments - Hello Stamp set onto gray cardstock. I then trimmed the sentiments down and then adhered them to my card front with foam adhesive. 

And that's it! I hope you enjoyed my cards! Thank you so much for stopping by!
