Step 1: Use the 12-inch Trimmer to cut a piece of White Cardstock to measure 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Then, fold in half to create your card base. Or simply use a card base from the Blank Card Kit (that’s what we did!).

Step 2: Cut the 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ navy floral patterned mat from the Gather Together Mat Pack to measure 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. Adhere to the card base.

Step 3: Cut the 4″ x 6″ Gather Together mat with the perforated card and floral cluster pattern to measure 3-1/2″ x 5-1/4″. Adhere on top of the navy floral mat.
