A Scor-Pal and Viva Las Vegas Stamps Recessed Window Card

Hi, Toni here! It's my turn to share a Scor-Pal and Viva Las Vegas Stamps project. We will have a week long showing of some crafty goodness by both the Scor-Pal design team and the Viva Las Vegas creative team. I received some really fabulous stamp set with so many great images and sentiments.  I chose to show off this great image with a recessed window card.
For this project, you will need:
  • Ruler
  • Craft Knife
  • Stamps
  • Inks
  • Embellishments
  • 4 1/4" x 8 3/4" piece of card stock
  • Two 4" x 4" pieces of card stock
  • Two 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" pieces of card stock
  • Two 3" x 3" pieces of card stock
  • 2 7/8" x 2 7/8" piece of card stock
Place the 4 1/4" by 8 3/4" piece of card stock in your Scor-Pal.  The 8 3/4" piece will be against the top fence of the Scor-Pal.  Score at 4 1/4" and 4 1/2" marks.
Place a 3 1/4" by 3 1/4" piece of card stock where you want your recessed window.  Trace around the piece of card stock and remove it.
Place a 3" by 3" piece of card stock inside of the previously traced square.  Trace around the piece of card stock and remove it.
Insert your Scor-Mat in your Scor-Pal and place your card stock on top of it.  With a ruler and a craft knife make a cut from one corner to the opposite corner.  Repeat with the remaining two corners. 
Score on the traced lines on each of the four sides.  The traced lines are 1/8" apart, so the scoring was completed with a Scor-Buddy
Turn your card stock over and crease the outside scores away from the center of the square. 
Next, crease the inside scores toward the center of the square.  This creates a negative "X" shape and is the base of the recessed window.
Crease the scores made in the very first step to create the spine of the card.  The two scores make room for the recessed window and allow the card to lie flat.
With card open and recessed window on top, line the inside of the window with Scor-Tape
Remove backing from Scor-Tape and place a 3 1/4" by 3 1/4" piece of card stock into the recessed opening.
Stamp the Viva La Vegas Marilyn Monroe image in black and red on a 2 7/8" by 2 1/8" piece of card stock.  Overstamp the whole image with Versamark ink and emboss with clear embossing powder to create a sheen.  Mat the Marilyn image on a piece of 3" by 3" piece of card stock.  Adhere focal image into the recessed window.
Finish inside of card by covering the back of the recessed window with a 4" by 4" piece of card stock.  Cover the inside of the card with another 4" by 4" piece of card stock and stamp a Marilyn Monroe quote from the same Viva Las Vegas Stamps set. 
Finish the outside of the card with a rhinestone frame.
Here is a view from the side to better show the recessed window in which Marilyn is framed.
Thanks for joining me today!
