When I found out the theme was 'Sparkly Seasons' I knew what I wanted to showcase. This is a card I made a while ago and I love it. It's using a technique called 'Split Negative' stamping. It works best with a stamp that looks good split down the middle. You stamp and emboss the image twice using two different colors (I used silver paper/black embossing and black paper/silver embossing). Once done, split both images down the middle and then place one half of each together to form a new image. So you'll get two focal images. The wooden stamp is from Stampendous called 'Tinsel Tree'.
