Hello! Today I have this recessed panel card to share with you. I used products from the Forever Greenery suite to put this card together and had a lot of fun doing it.
Shopping by suite is an easy way to ensure you have craft supplies that coordinate and look fab together. Stampin’ Up! have given each suite its own product number to make ordering super easy. Or, if you only want bits and pieces, you can still use the individual product numbers to order only what you want. Check out the current suites here.
To make this project you will need:
- Whisper White Thick cardstock – 29.8cm x 10.5cm
- Whisper White cardstock – 14.9cm x 10.5cm
- Pretty Peacock cardstock
- Pear Pizzazz cardstock
- Champagne Foil Sheet
Score the Whisper White card base at 14.9cm along the long edge. Fold on this score line, using your bone folder.
Use your paper trimmer to cut the Whisper White layer on an angle. TIP: Make the first cut away from the top left corner, allowing plenty of space for a layer of coloured cardstock to be adhered. Repeat this for the second angled cut.
Use the two Whisper White pieces to trace a line on the Whisper White Thick cardstock base. This will show you where to stamp the leaf images.
Emboss the two Whisper White pieces using the Greenery Embossing Folders. Adhere a strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock to the inside edge of the two Whisper White panels using Seal or Tear & Tape. Trim these to the edge of the Whisper White panels using Paper Snips. Place aside for now.
Stamp three of the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set. TIP: I chose two of the big leaves, and one of the small leaves. Randomly stamp the leaves to fill in the space between the pencil lines. Colours to use are Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green, and Pretty Peacock – use one colour per leaf stamp. TIP: Don’t forget to add some stamping to the inside of the card.
Stamp one extra of each leaf image onto a scrap piece of Whisper White. Die cut these using the Forever Flourishing Dies.
Die cut four of the small sprigs in Champagne Foil, and two of the non-leaf filler thing (my scientific term :P) in Pretty Peacock. ‘
Adhere the embossed Whisper White pieces to the card front using Seal or Tear & Tape.
Adhere the die cut leaves and fillers using Glue Dots. TIP: Adhere one of the die cut leaves using Stampin’ Dimensionals to break up the layers.
Punch a scrap piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the Everyday Label Punch. Stamp the sentiment ‘To A Friend…’ in Pretty Peacock onto the punched piece, to the right hand side. Feed the punched piece back into the punch to trim it closer to the sentiment. TIP: Watch my YouTube tutorial for how to do this if you are uncertain.
Adhere the sentiment on top of the die cut pieces using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Tie a bow using Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and adhere it below the sentiment using Glue Dots.
Happy crafting x
