Hi there, hope you are having a great Saturday!
I am going to continue with the cardstock theme today. For a professional elegant finish to your cards it is VERY important that you layer your cards. You would stamp your image onto card and then stick it onto another layer of card that is slightly larger and continue until you are happy with the look. The layers frame your image just like mount board does in a picture frame. This layering can be called matting or mounting.
