Matting & Layering

Matting and Layering serve as essential tools in any cardmaker's toolkit. They elevate the art of crafting by introducing a structured and visually appealing dimension to handmade cards. These techniques involve the strategic placement of differently sized and often contrasting layers of paper or cardstock to create borders and frames around elements on a card. Matting adds a defined edge, while layering introduces depth and texture, transforming a simple design into a visually engaging masterpiece.
