Step 1
Step 1
Begin with one sheet of AG1069. Remove the centers from the inside diamonds; this is a total of 8 diamonds to remove. (In the sample, the squares you're removing reveal the bright pink AG1070 paper and are partly hidden under the photo mat.  We have removed only the six outside diamonds.) The easiest way to do this is with a craft knife but it can also be done with scissors. Use the printed design of the diamond to make straight cuts.

Layer the sheet of AG1069 onto a sheet of AG1070. You can see that AG1070 shows up under the center diamonds you removed in Step 1. Remove the centers of the outside diamonds from the AG1069 paper, cutting through both layers of paper; this is a total of 10 diamonds.

Layer the two cut sheets onto a sheet of AG1074. You can see that AG1074 shows up under the outside diamonds.

For photo mats, cut two, 4 1/4" x 6 1/4" pieces of AG1074 and two, 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" pieces of AG1070. Layer the smaller pieces onto the larger ones.

Position these mats on the page as desired. Use a pencil to mark where the corners of the mats intersect with the diagonal lines of AG1069. Remove the mats and use a craft knife or scissors to make slits along the diagonals so you can slip the mats under these lines. Adhere the mats in place, inserting the corners under the diagonal bands.

Cut two, 5" x 8" pieces of AG1074. Adhere these pieces together on their shorter side so that they make a 5" x 14" piece of AG1074. On each of the shorter ends, measure and mark 1 3/4" in from each side. Fold the paper around the body of the card made in Step One, so that the ends meet in the center front of the card.
