Tips for Making Card Layers

Do you ever get stumped on how to layer your cards? I found this perfect graphic on Pinterest for you (I looked at so many and now I am not sure who to give credit to..). These measurements are for your standard A2 card (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″).

This graphic shows how to reduce each smaller matting by 1/4″. Of course, you can always add a bit of design interest by adjusting only 1/8″ . Some layers are more appealing with a narrower edge. It really is up to you and what you prefer.

I cut my sample mats out using up some of my scrap paper and keep them in one of Stampin’ Up’s medium clear envelopes.

Watch my YouTube video to see how well this works:

I hope you found this tip helpful. Happy crafting!! Colleen
