Hi paper crafting peeps, welcome to today’s blog post. Today I am show casing how to make panels work for your cards. Panels are a great feature to add to all types of card. I have made 3 types of cards all have different widths and features to feature each panels. Each card panel has been watercoloured with Zig Clean Color Real Brush marks and stamped with the Inspired By Stamping Magnolias stamp set. Each card has also been embellished with clear droplets scattered throughout each card. I have kept the bold sentiments the same on each card. I have used one of my favourite sentiment stamp sets “Just Because”, the script is just so elegant and has a huge array accompanying sentiments.
Card 1 – Acetate card with yellow water coloured panel.
Now playing with acetate can always be tricky and does require some extra thinking to execute a clean and finished card. My biggest tip is to make sure you cover all four sides, front & back of both the top and bottom panels. Make sure all panels are the exact same size and I also found it best to use double sided tape not liquid adhesives to place each panel. The acetate adds a very elegant feel and wow factor to a card that is clean and simple.
Card 2 – Inserted panel with orange coloured panel.
This card I have cut out the panel and have placed liquid glue on the top side of the panel and have come through the back of the card front so the white panels are either side. To accentuate the panel I have added thin black strips of cardstock either side of the panel as I feel this also co-ordinates with the stamped sentiment.
Card 3 – Top panel – Pink
The watercoloured panel has been foam mounted on top of the black card base with an extra piece of pink cardstock peaking through the right had side of the panel only just to added the extra pop of colour to the whole card.
I hope this set inspires you to create panels for your cards. Thanks for stopping by. Hugs Jo
