Diagonal Split Panel Valentine’s Day Card (and another CAS design)
This 5×7 Valentine’s Day card is similar to the diagonal split panel cards I posted previously and features the gorgeous patterned paper called “Moonstruck” by American Crafts (#320318) along with a greeting from the Hampton Art (SC0744) stamp (and die) set.
Diagonal split panel cards are quick and easy to make and can be adapted to any holiday or occasion by simply choosing different patterned paper, an appropriate greeting, and as many (or few) embellishments as desired.
Here is a video tutorial on how to do this technique, although as I mentioned in my previous post, I changed mine up a bit by matting my finished panel and changing the angle/measurements of my cuts. I’ve also seen variations where the solid panels are popped up with foam tape and where the center portion is hand-stamped.
This next card seemed too simple to get its own post – lol!
I whipped up a few of these “Clean and Simple” cards for my kids who think it kind of silly that I make and send them Valentine’s Day cards at all but who enjoy the “little something” I put inside – lol!
This A2 sized CAS card features the heart stamp from the Hero Arts “Stamp Your Story – Brush” set along with a greeting from the “Sealed With a Kiss” set from Paper Pretties (both no longer available). The texture stamp behind the heart was unmarked and was stamped off to keep it subtle.
Gina K Designs Soft Stone ink and Edible Eggplant card stock was used (not black as it appears in the photo!!) along with Blackberry Bliss ink from Stampin’ Up.
Thanks for checking out my card projects!

Love the card, great technique!
I have to say the CAS is the best.
These are lovely! I love the split design that is something I have been meaning to try. I think that some people would feel a bit sad if we stopped sending the cards, even if they think they are silly!
I think it’s the holiday itself that my kids think is a bit silly. They know better than to say my cards are silly – LOL!!!!!!!
