Recessed Panel Card

April 22, 2021

Yesterday in my Facebook Live, I showed a couple of versions of the recessed panel card. I have never made one of these angled recessed panel cards before. I really don’t know why because I love that you get “two for one”. Cut one panel of designer series paper and one panel of co-ordinating card and you get two card fronts! Today’s card uses a piece of the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper which was a pre-release from the next Annual Catalogue in the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle. Unfortunately this paper was only available while stocks last and it has sold out. Anyway, I cut the Basic White card and Designer Series Paper using the template I shared yesterday.

I embossed the Basic White card using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. Using the outside panels as a guide, I attached the central panel to Basic White card. I attached strips of Silver Foil card along the inside edges of the outside panels before attaching them to the Basic White card. The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Just Jade card. I stamped “thinking of you” from the Beautiful Moments stamp set onto Basic White card.

I cut out the greetings using one of the circles from the Stitched Shapes Dies (unfortunately sold out). The greeting is attached to a Silver Foil scalloped circle which was cut using the Layering Circles Dies. I attached the greeting to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped the butterfly from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set onto Basic White card using Just Jade ink. I cut out the butterfly using the Brilliant Wings Dies. I curled the wings of the butterfly and attached it to the greeting panel using dimensionals under the wings and glue dots under the body. I cut the co-ordinating detailed butterfly from Silver Foil card using the Brilliant Wings Dies and curled the wings slightly upwards. I attached the Silver Foil butterfly to the stamped butterfly using Tombow Multipurpose Glue under the body and antennae only. To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a narrow strip of the same pattern Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper down the left hand side of Basic White card.

As I said at the beginning of this post, by cutting a co-ordinating piece of card and designer series paper you can create two card fronts and I think they both look pretty, don’t you. If you haven’t given one of these type of cards a try, take a look at my Facebook Live video and use the template to create your own versions.

Bye for now,
