Tips and Techniques - Making a Mat for Your Framelits

Today's Tips and Techniques video show you how to make a mat for your Stampin' Up! framelit dies.  This techniques lends itself nicely to the Apothecary Accents framelits.

I used this technique on a Birthday card.  In fact, the main image is double mounted as I created 2 mats.
