Sentiment Splits Day Two

Hi there! Welcome to day two of the March Papertrey Ink countdown.  

Today my newest addition to my Stamping Simply line up, the Sentiment Splits collection, is officially being introduced on the Papertrey Ink blog.  Be sure to get all the detail there!  Also, Laura Bassen is focusing on Sentiment Splits too!  I shared a couple project yesterday, featuring these new products of mine.  Today I bring you a couple more...
Yesterday I shared the Sentiment Splits: Angle Vertical die with you here. Today I bring you the Sentiment Splits: Curve Vertical die.  The obvious focus of this die and its coordinating sentiments is the curve.  There are two panel sizes that can be die cut using this die, the largest size allows you to cover the entire card front.
I die cut my panels from a sheet of Watercolor Wonder paper pad.  Once the panels were attached to the Smokey Shadow card base I heat embossed a coordinating sentiment.  
Here I've used the same Sentiment Splits: Curve Vertical die, but applied it to a horizontal layout.  This card design utilizes the smaller die cut panels, which were cut from pattern vellum.
I layered the vellum over stamped butterflies and nestled a coordinating sentiment into the open curve. Embellished the card with a few buttons, which also helped hide my adhesive to hold the vellum in place.  I also folded the top portion of the vellum over the edge of the card and adhered the excess to the back side. 

Well, that concludes today's look at Sentiment Splits. Just remember... all that you have seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning March 15th.  Don't forget to stop by Nichole Heady's and Laura Bassen's blogs for more Sentiment Splits details and ideas.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
