I apologize for the delay in this post this morning. I was having issues with my internet. Everything is good now. Yay!!!
I have been wanting to make a recessed panel card for quite a while now and thought this would be a great time to do it. I was a little intimidated by it, if I am honest. Looking at samples on my computer, I just couldn't figure out how did they get the section with designer paper lower than the rest of the card. So, I went to the first place I go when I am trying to figure something out, Google! Thank goodness for them!
When I watched a video on YouTube on how to do it, I was shocked at how easy it was to make. What had I been waiting for? I am going to share with you just how easy it is to make.
To make this project you are going to need the following products:
Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock #144237
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650
- cut 2 at 3/4" x 5 1/2"
- cut at 2 1/4 x 3 1/4" for the sentiment
Early Espresso Cardstock #119686
- cut at 1" x 5 1/2"
- cut at 2" x 5 1/2"
Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684
- cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"
Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack #144177
- cut at 1 3/4" x 5 1/2"
The first thing you will do is adhere the Wood Texture designer series paper onto the Very Vanilla Thick cardstock base. You are going to come in 3/4" from the left hand side of the card base (where the fold is). You will then take the two skinny strips of Very Vanilla paper and adhere it to the two pieces of Early Espresso cardstock.
Adhere the Early Espresso pieces using Stampin Dimensionals and line them up with the outside edges of your card. You now have the recessed part of your card finished.
Next, stamp your sentiment using the Early Espresso ink and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. The layer behind the sentiment was cut out using Cajun Craze cardstock and the Layering Oval Framelits.
To keep the sentiment level on both sections of the card (part is on the Early Espresso and part of it is on the Wood Texture paper) I used two different types of adhesive. I put snail adhesive on the section that is on the Early Espresso paper and a dimensional on the section that is over the designer series paper. You can see in the picture above what area I am talking about.
I love making easy cards that have a WOW factor to them, and this one definitely has that.
Thank you for stopping in today. I hope you have a terrific weekend!
