I made this card with create a critter pg. 68 at 3.5 inches. My card base is 6.5 x 5. The black mat was 1/4 inch smaller and the same with the yellow mat. The black border was cut at 1 1/2 x 6 and the yellow border at 1 x 6. I put ribbon on the border and added buttons. I stamped the sentiment with a stamp from Michael's.
