Donna here with the Pick of the Week for The House That Stamps Built. I am going to show you how to make a Recessed Panel Card – a great way to use up some of that patterned paper stash!

1) Gather your supplies: An A-2 card, a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of white card stock, a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of patterned paper, stamps of your choice, I used Repeat Impressions: 1210-K, Tumbling Hearts and 1207-J, Floral LOVE and basic supplies.

2) Glue patterned paper to front of A-2 card. Mark a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of white cardstock in pencil 1 1/4″ to the left of the bottom right corner, and 2 1/2″ above the bottom right corner. Trim from the top left corner to these marks, then erase the marks. Discard the center piece.

3) Glue the patterned paper to the front of your A2 card front. Attach your white diagonal pieces with foam tape or as I did with a second layer of paper attached – I felt my card needed more color so I cut a layer of red and attached it to my white and got the dimension I needed.

4) Embellish as desired. I stamped the red with 1210-K, Tumbling Hearts with Versamark ink for just a faint image, and 1207-J, Floral LOVE in red for my saying. The balloons are cut out with a heart die by Nellie. You can also do a rectangle, curved edge or any shape your imagination can come up with to inset your patterned paper!
