Stamping with the STARS #312: Recessed Panel Card Inspiration
April 06, 2019
The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts312. This week we're having fun with Recessed Panel cards!
I've seen Recessed Panel cards around for years, but have never made one. If you search for them, you'll find samples of horizontal, vertical and diagonal versions. I chose the diagonal version, as I like the visual interest. I got out the Needlepoint Nook Suite of products and started to play!
DOstamping Needlepoint Recessed card supplies:
- Whisper White Thick (11" x 4-1/4" card base)
- Whisper White (5-1/2" x 4-1/4" and scrap for punch)
- Old Olive (5-1/2" x 4-1/4")
- Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper (3" x 6")
- Rich Razzleberry (scrap for punch)
How'd She DO That? Recessed Panel Instructions:
- On folded card base, adhere Designer Series Paper at a diagonal. Align it at the bottom right corner, then align the opposite corner with the left edge of the card - see above. (You could use a full panel of Designer Series Paper. However, if you want your DSP to go farther, use a 3" x 6" piece.)
- Cut both white and olive 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" panels at the same time.
- Near the top left side, make a mark at 3/4" & 1-1/8". On the right side, make a mark at 3" down from the top.
- For top "half" - start at 3/4" mark on the left edge and cut diagonally over to 3" mark on the right edge. Trim off 1/8" from top edge of white panel.
- For bottom "half" - start at 1-1/8" mark on the left edge and cut diagonally down to the bottom right corner of the panels. Trim off 1/8" from bottom edge of white panel.
- Adhere white and olive panels together
- Optional: before adhering cut panels to card, add texture.
- Adhere panels to card with Stampin' Dimensionals
- Decorate as desired
Take a Closer Look:
- Look at all of the fun "stitching" on the lower panel and the greeting label. I was giddy to discover how fabulous it looks. Both are from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies.
- The Pretty Label Punch is perfect to cut the greeting label.
- The finishing touch is the Needlepoint Nook Mini Buttons and Old Olive Linen Thread.
Not sure why I waited so long to make a Recessed Panel card, it was fun to make. Whether you make your panel vertical, horizontal or diagonal (like mine), I'm sure you'll have fun too! Give it a try.
