Default Cutting mat for a card need help please

Good Morning Ladies

I am still new at this please forgive me. I feel so stupid! I cut a card Black card stock 5x7 no problem I want to cut a White (mat) this way the Black shows what measurement would it be on my Fiskars paper cutter (Purple and Silver). Every time I cut the white mat it is off. I know it is me. Please help me.

Thanks.

I would do 4 3/4 X 6 3/4. that is a tricky one if your cutter doesn't have the 3/4 mark!

The white portion measurements would be 4 3/4 and 6 3/4. With these you would have 1/8" of black showing on all four sides. HTH

All you need to do is take the same amount off each side.

1/4" gives a very fine boarder.

1/2" gives a small stripe.

3/4" give a deeper border.

1" is quiet a nice thick outline.



5 by 7
4 3/4 by 6 3/4
4 1/2 by 6 1/2
4 1/4 by 6 1/4

5 1/2 by 7

5 by 6 1/2
4 3/4 by 6 1/4
4 1/2 by 5
