Embossed Split Panel Hollyhocks Card
An Embossed Split Panel Hollyhocks Card is an easy creation for an understated yet dramatic effect. It’s created with the Heavenly Hollyhocks stamps from Stampin’ Up and the Quatrefoil Embossing folder.
Last week my best friend told me this blue (Tahitian Tide) was one of her favorites, so of course I sat down and made a card with it!
I love this new In-Color, too, and even made another card with it using the matching glimmer paper!
Simply stamping the flowers on your top panel with a single color can have a dramatic effect. Likewise, I added in a second color to the center of the flowers to also give them some depth.
Adding in the embossing folder adds some understated beauty to the bottom panel of this card. Do you see that detail??

How to make a Embossed Split Panel card:
Cut your cardstock:
- Tahitian Tide: 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, folded at 4 1/4”
- Smoky Slate: 5 3/8” x 4 1/8”
- Basic White: 2 pieces each: 2” x 5 1/4
- On one of the white pieces, stamp the Hollyhocks flowers using Tahitian Tide ink, and the inner dots with Smoky Slate ink.
- Next, stamp the sentiment on the left side with Smoky Slate ink.
TIP: Want to add multiple colors to a stamped image? Use a Stamparatus! You can add color to part of your image and stamp, then add your other colors with repeated stampings.
- Using the other white piece, dry emboss it with the folder.
- Then adhere this and your stamped white piece of cardstock to the Smoky Slate piece for split panels. Wrap your twine around the middle and secure it with a bow.
- Lastly, adhere this split panel piece to your card front.
