Give it a slight Inner Bevel:

Open up Paper 4.
Use your Selection Tool set on Rectangle and section out an area of the green background in the paper.  I chose my area in the upper right hand corner of the paper.  Once you have it sectioned off, Copy.
DO NOT close this paper out or deselect the sectioned area – you’ll need it again in a little while.
