More photo mats - put the words outside (no "burping" required)

If you liked the "seasons" photo mats you may have already gone on and tried putting words on the outside like this. I just thought I'd post some examples, particularly for those who are new to the Cricut Design Studio software.

You can change the words (for example to "Mum" or "Pop") , change the fonts, change the shapes - do whatever you want and you won't need to "burp" these after you weld since the items are outside the frame. The vertical ones fit on a baby bug mat but the horizontal ones are a bit too big for the small mat - you could just weld your word to the short side of the photo mat to keep it on the 6 x 12 mat size.

NOTE: If you don't understand "burping," check out the helpful information in the Cricut Lovers Guide to Design Studio linked in "Some Favorite Places" in the right side column.

Add hearts, stars, flowers - whatever you like - these mats are sized to be perfect "overlays" for standard 4 x 6 photos.

Here are the links:
