Splitting the Splits

11th Anniversary Day 10: February
Release Day 5 + Stripes Challenge  

Hi there, quick post for me today. 
My heart is heavy and goes out to all the shooting victims.

 I used the beautiful sketch below for the inspiration of my card this morning.

CAS(E) this Sketch #258

I took the Split: Best Wishes Die and split it down the middle to fit across my card, 
then stamped the sentiment ( Pen & Ink) on a strip of Watercolor cardstock. 
All stamps and dies are from Papertrey Ink . I colored 
in the image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens.

Thank you for the visit. 
Keeping all those involved in todays shooting in my prayers!


  1. Marybeth I just love those Splits - ordered and they are still NBUS! A beautiful design, and execution - absolutely lovely!
    I must add my thoughts and prayers to those poor people - think anything will be done about gun control? Highly doubtful...

  2. Awesome card, Marybeth! Love the texture of this paper! And that is such a perfect sentiment for just about anyone!! I need to make cards with that sentiment! Heart Hugs friend and Happy Heart Day!

  3. Absolutely beautiful it! 😊

  4. Gorgeous card Marybeth :-) the die cut leaves and berries design is so pretty and I love the simple striped background and sentiment, the whole design is stunning!

    Another tragedy, absolutely heartbreaking :-(

  6. This is stunning, Marybeth. Love this stamp set, and I should pull mine out and use it more! Those stripes really accent that split, and the colors are gorgeous. It's always a treat to stop by your blog and see what you've created! This is one sweet card!! Bev

  12. Wow! This is a stunning card, Marybeth! I remember, we both loved this PTI stamp, but I've never thought of using it for this type of layout. And I really love your muted neutral striped background. - Sweet Kobylkin
