Vertical Divide Valentine Backgrounds + Video

More Valentine cards!  I'm calling the backgrounds on these Vertical Divide.  Meaning that two (or more) vertical sections of the background are completely different.  Fun and easy background ideas for any cards, not just Valentines.  I've got a video below.

Sugar Bowl Girl is adorable, isn't she?  Her background is about two-thirds plaid and one-third hearts.  I love this plaid stencil - I've found myself using it a lot!

Sugar Bowl Girl is all cleaned up and ready for you to download below.

Cute, cute little bears!  Seriously.  (You can see the video on how to make envelopes like the one above HERE.)  This one is a vertical divide because all the action is on the left and the right side is bare.  (I should have put bear there for a pun!)

The little bears were so much fun to color!  

This card almost didn't make the cut as a Vertical Divide.  When I first started it, the card size was wider and looked more like the right side was blank.  So I'm kind of fudging on this one.  We'll just say that the right fourth of the card is blank!

This is my first foray into Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  I need to practice and experiment, but it was fun to try out something new (to me).  

I found it completely necessary to make color swatches of all the pens.  Once you add water, they look totally different.  You can see the color charts I made in the video.

Here's the video:

As I say in the video, there are at least a million and one ways to create a vertical divide background for cards.  Thank you for letting me share my three cards with you!
