Prompted by a very good question from Sandra at the weekend, today's post is about Matting Basics.
Matting Basics dies are from the Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® Card Creator range.
They are designed to be used alone or to coordinate with the more fancy designs in each size range.
So...how useful are they?
In my opinion...very! You can layer cardstock, patterned paper, images, photos
each time ensuring you have the perfect proportions with embossed edging.
Here I've used A-2 Matting Basics A to cut/emboss red striped paper and matted onto
Because I know they are sets from the Card Creator range I am guaranteed the proportions are perfect.
Spellbinders have come up with a useful way to remember too.....
C - Create, A - Assemble, R - Refine, D- Done!
Also how about combining Matting Basics dies to create an aperture as featured on this card?
A useful option.
I hope that explains the wonders of Matting Basics.
Have a lovely week - is Easter really just around the corner...!
Take care friends.
