Petal Palette, Thank You Card, Telescope Panel Stamping Technique, 2018 Occasions Catalog

I have not made too many cards using the "Telescope Panel" technique. It's easy enough to do.  I had always wondered how it was done. I had done this technique several years ago and it all made sense.  There is a video that explains the technique here.  I found this card on Pinterest.  I changed the color and I didn't add the bow or the gems because I'm trying to keep the mailing costs down.

I only made one of these.  As I was making it, I thought about making two but then I remembered why I didn't like to do this technique.  It was difficult to see where to color. I struggled with the flowers in a few places but I did manage to get them all the correct colors.  It is much easier if it's done monochromatic.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  My card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.  I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock and a 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock. I used removable tape and centered the smaller piece to the larger piece.  Then I stamped the flower images, crossing over the pieces of card stock.  Once done I removed the smaller piece and cut a 2-3/8" x 3-3/8" piece of Basic Black for a layer. I colored in the images using Blends markers.  

I lined up the smaller image on top of what was left of the image on the larger piece and taped it in place.  Then I taped those layers to the card base and that was it.  Like I said, it was easy enough to do but for me, the coloring was the difficult part.  

I do like how it turned out and it goes in the pile of cards to be sent out soon!!  I need to find easier ones so I can make several of them at a time!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
