Tonic Studios Screen Divider Card


I just received my advance copy of the January 2016 Scrap and Stamp Arts issue and I was delighted to find my article about screen divider cards published in it. The editor of SSA usually tells me what issue an accepted article is going to be published in, but this was unassigned until now. I am sharing my favorite screen divider card from the article today on my blog.  Screen divider cards have four separate panels which allow the card maker to be creative on four separate canvases. Most of the screen divider cards I have created were 12 inches wide x 8 1/2 inches tall and scored at 3, 6 and 9 inches. But on this one I wanted to use a lovely arched border punch by ek success along the top, so I cut it smaller. It is 10 inches wide by 7 3/4 inches tall, and scored at the 2 1/2, 5 and 7 1/2 inch lines. I cut this card out of a floral vintage cardstock and punched the "feet" with half of a label punch from Stampin' Up. All the dies used on this card are from Tonic Studios. I embossed a piece of glitter paper with a Happy Birthday embossing folder from Indentz, then layered it on a black piece. I die cut and attached "Wishes" from Tonic's Everyday Sentiments and add the pearl to dot the "i".

The second and third panels feature two beautiful ladies from Tonic's Silhouette Scenes Bride Set facing each other. The last panel was created with a stencil cut with the Tonic Silhouette Scene Roses panel and Stormy Sky Distress Ink. There is plenty of room on that last panel to write a personal message to the birthday girl.

Here is a picture of this card standing up. It folds nicely to fit in a business size envelope and stands for display of all 4 panels:


I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Scrapy Land (Tonic Studios dies used), and the "include a sentiment" challenge at Creative Knockouts.
