This cushioned, self-healing mat is perfect for creating your pages. The grid allows you to place different elements from a given pattern with precision. The reverse side is cushioned for stamping and protects your work surface as you apply conchos or nail heads, or use a piercing tool. (13" × 13" mat features a 12" × 12" grid.). I love using this every day when stamping. I place my desk pad paper on top of the Versa Mat and then stamp. The extra cushion provides for nice crisp clean stamp images!
