I have seen the circle cut off the side of the mat idea and wanted to give it a try myself. I love it! I will be trying this again in the future.
Also I had a couple questions about how I make my matching envelopes for square cards. So I created a page of directions with photos showing to make them.
I uploaded a PDF version HERE (the title along the side doesn't show up in the preview but it is there if you download it... go figure) I have also uploaded it to my Flickr photostream as a JPEG if you would like to download it from there instead. Hope this is helpful and answers the questions. Thanks for stopping by today!
