Have I told you lately, how much I LOVE my Perfect Layers tools???  I use them on any card that has mats. I know a lot of you think it's just easier to use your ruler to measure the size you want and then use your paper trimmer to cut to that size... but I find that no matter how much I love my paper trimmer, it's never exact for the smaller measurements....  and then there is the whole thing about trying to put the top layer on the next layer and making sure everything is straight.

With my Perfect Layers tool, it truly is a perfect layer every time!  And it's so easy!  I cut my top layer to size and then adhere it to a piece of cardstock that is slightly larger than what I want my second layer to be.  I then choose the right measurement on the Perfect Layers tool, catch the top layer on the ridge on the back of the Perfect Layers tool and use my cutting knife along the edge of the ruler to cut the mat layer.  My mat is always straight and the reveal is always even!!

I used my Perfect Layers a few times on this card, creating different sized layers and mats for this fun card....
