My second recess card

It’s the wedding today so I have to show you the wedding card. It is my second ever recess card, made for the wedding couple to match all the other stationery, of course. I wish I’d had enough of the swirly Bridesmaid paper to add a border to this card but I didn’t, so settled on a panel inside instead.

What’s a recess card? It’s a card where the outer border sits above the inner panel. I have to confess that it’s something I didn’t think I’d be able to achieve, even after seeing Kelly’s wonderful demonstration at a recent team meeting. And I’m beginning to wish I’d made something different for the wedding, after Alison reminded me that I said I’d eat my hat if I managed to make a recess card!

The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that this is my second recess card. You'll just have to wait for the first... and the instructions.
