Spanner Panel Card – Hand-Penned

If you love florals then don’t miss the new Hand-Penned Bundle (stamp set + coordinating dies). To make it even easier, the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper makes coordination a breeze!

An interesting feature of this card is how the front panel opens. I created a “bridge” using a piece of Window Sheet (acetate) that allows you to view the greeting from the front of the card.

Lift the center panel and the inside of the card is revealed. This hidden layer is perfect for additional stamped messages or a handwritten note.

Spanner Panel Card – Sailing Home

The Sailing Home stamp set and coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies has been a beloved combination for several years. These products were carried over from previous catalogs and while they are no longer sold as a Bundle they are worthy of their independent purchases. Nautical or masculine cards are easily created with this combination of products.

I used a very simple color palette for this card which can easily be adapted to birthdays, sympathy and get well cards. The new Beauty of the Earth Designer Papers have the perfect sky/water pattern and are versatile enough for any outdoorsy theme.

The Smooth Sailing Dies include additional pieces not featured in the stamp set. Choose the ship’s wheel, rope, compass dials, labels or even the seaweed dies to create a large array of scenes.
