Have you ever wanted to decorate the inside of your card, but weren’t sure how? A recessed background is a great way to decorate both the inside and outside together. A few of your favorite dies is all you need to create the beautiful flowers in this recessed background.
Place the die that you have chosen to create the recessed area on the front and place the entire card, making sure that it is open so only the front is die cut, onto the plate of your machine and run it through to cut.
Place two coinciding sized dies from the set you chose to use in the above step onto a piece of cardstock and run it through your machine to create a frame. Use a glue pen to attach it to the front of the card.
Work from the front of the card through the opening and begin by gluing the stem inside the opening using the glue pen. Continue to work building the flowers using the hearts. Be sure to add some single hearts to represent individual flowers.
This card is perfect for any theme and any occasion. The recessed background technique makes it a quick and easy way to decorate the inside and outside of the card. The simple flowers are not only easy to make they add a touch of elegance to the card design when you need just the right look.
