The base is the usual 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4". The center stamped mat is 3" x 4 1/2". Using temporary adhesive, attach it to the base and stamp your image all over. There will be a slight gap in the stamping around the mat. Then lift the mat off, cut a solid mat at 3 1/4"x 4 3/4" and attach to the back of the stamped mat. Attach this to the base card and the gaps disappear. Then decorate as desired.
SU products used:
Cardstock: So Saffron, Cajun Craze, Whisper White
Inks: Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, and Early Espresso
Stamp Sets: Field Flowers (122760) and Papillon Potpourri (123757)
Apothecary Accents Framelits (127003)
For the sentiment, I cut the mat from the same framelit and cut the piece in to fourths. I then attached it to the back of the sentiment. ( If you look close, you will see small gaps, but they do not take away from the matting.)
Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!!!
