It’s time for another Case The Creator card!
This time we are creating a Recessed Panel Card.
The recessed DSP (designer series paper) on the front is a full size piece so when you open to the inside the back of the DSP is the top of the card and quite nice- just be warned to not use directional papers that might be upside down on the inside!
There are many different versions with different placement of the recessed panel. I chose the dimensions used by France Martin of www.frenchiestamps.com. To access her video click on the pdf file not the screen shot of the dimensions – the video won’t work from the screen shot.

Screen Shot of Directions
. That’s really cool and I like the picture of the fall card on the directions but what did you use?
That would be helpful, Sal, wouldn’t it?
The Christmas card I made uses the Painted Christmas Paper DSP for the recessed panel. This DSP carried over from last year to the new fall mini catalog, so check your stash, you may have it already!
The base is Evening Evergreen and the mat is Basic White. The greetings on the front are from the Hope & Peace stamp set and dry embossed with White Embossing Powder. The inside greeting is from the same set and stamped with Evening Evergreen Ink.
The holly berries, stamped in real red, and leaves, stamped in garden green, are from Merriest Moments stamp set and Merriest Frames Dies, another carryover from last year that is one of my all time favorite sets. The pine boughs are from Christmas Banner Dies cut from Garden Green cardstock.
Very helpful! Did anyone participate in the challenge.
Indeed they did, Sal! Ann used the Sweet Candy Canes stamp set with Candy Canes Dies and the oh- so- cool Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper. Her card is just beautiful and the green mat and mistletoe bough are perfect with the candy canes! Such a great job!
Do you see what I mean with the back of the DSP panel? A lovely look!
Jo’s card has a recessed panel of many colored candies! She used a punch to cut out even more candies to embellish her card and added glittery snowflakes! So very fun!
Sharon used the smiley moose from our All Bundled Up stamp set! She turned the panel the other way which looks great. I love how the moose scarf is colored to match the DSP! We don’t have a die to cut out the moose so she fussy cut him and then added an oval of gold behind him. Beautiful work!
What’s up at the home office? Surely something is happening!
Yes, Sal, we have ovals back! They are designer ovals as well that will dress up any card. Check out this video from Leana and Holly of the home office:
Did you hear what I heard? The stamp and dies have the same name!
Yes, finally! We have been begging the home office to make life easier on us by naming the dies the same as the stamp set! Hurrah!!
Be warned! The Framed Florets bundle will be available in the Mini Catalog that starts in January but the other products are available only through January 4, 2023. The designer paper can be used year round and is luscious!

. Let’s see…. 50 days left until Christmas and less than that to get those cards mailed.
AAAAHHHHHH……. I better run!
