I created this card for a recent card swap that I participated in and I really like how it turned out.

I was inspired by the rich colors of Autumn, I love when the weather turns a bit cooler and the trees start to show all their beautiful colors.

Some of my favorite elements of this card…

  • the Wood-Grain and Gingham Checkered pattern paper from the Gather Together Designer Series Paper pack
  • I used the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for added interest, I love how it gives the Champagne Foil Paper a little something EXTRA!
  • and the Crumb Cake Ribbon with Satin Edge, it is super soft and very easy to work with!

The front of the card is filled with textures and rich warm autumn colors!

But check out the inside…I adore the large maple leaf!

Inside Sentiment: May this season bring you smiles and love that will last all year long

Here is a closer look at the how the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder gives the Champagne Foil added interest!

Beautiful Promenade Recessed Panel Card

Strong & Beautiful pairs perfectly with Beautiful Promenade.

For all the strong and beautiful people in your life, especially the women.

Stampin' Up! Strong & Beautiful stamp set. For all the strong and beautiful people in your life, especially the women.

Today, I want to share with you the Recessed Panel Technique.

I had never tried this technique when the Stamping with the Stars group decided to create and share this type of card.

Since I didn’t have a clue how to do it, I do what I always do when I need creative inspiration…

I searched Pinterest for “Recessed Panel” and lickity split, up popped tons of inspiration and instructional videos!

I love the fact that this technique is…

  1. Super Easy
  2. Can be used for any occasion
  3. a Great way to use Designer Series Paper

So…

Let’s see what the STARS have created!

Stamping with the Stars #312 - Recessed Panel card #DOswts312 #CrackedPotStamper

 

Some of my favorite things about this card…

  • the sentiment was heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder
  • the color combination of Mossy Meadow and Blushing Bride
  • and of course, the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper in the Recessed Panel

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Promenade Recessed Panel card created by Dawn Thomas #CrackedPotStamper #swts312

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down for complete supply list and links)

  • Stamp Set: Beautiful Promenade and Strong & Beautiful
  • Paper: Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper, Mossy Meadow, Thick Very Vanilla
  • Ink: Blushing Bride, Petal Pink, Mossy Meadow, Versamark
  • Accessories: Rose Metallic Thread, Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems, Copper Emboss Powder
  • Tools: Heat Tool, Big Shot, Beautiful Layers Thinlits, Stampin’ Trimmer
  • Adhesive: SNAIL, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots
  • Technique: Heat Embossing and Recessed Panel
Cardstock Dimensions:
  • Thick Very Vanilla: 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″ (card base)
  • Very Vanilla: (2) 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, scraps for flower & leaves
  • Mossy Meadow: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
  • Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
Instructions:
  1. Adhere Designer Series Paper onto folded card base.
  2. Cut both Very Vanilla and Mossy Meadow (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 Very Vanilla 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 Very Vanilla panel.
  3. Adhere Very Vanilla and Mossy Meadow panels together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (see TIP below), aligned at the top & bottom edges.
  4. Before adhering cut panels to card base, heat emboss & stamp card front and inside panel. Adhere to card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  5. Stamp and die cut flower and leaves. Adhere to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Write a personal note and drop in the mail to brighten someone’s day!
TIP:
Multipurpose Liquid Glue:
  • I like to use Multipurpose Liquid Glue for adhering the layers of this project because it allows me move my layers slightly if needed to make sure they are aligned properly due to it being a liquid and slower to dry than other adhesives.
Heat Emboss
  • Ink image with Versamark ink. Stamp on Very Vanilla Cardstock. Cover with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Remove excess and melt with Heat Tool.
