  10. Ink around the edges of your piece. Take your cardstock that is 8.5 x 5.5 and fold. This will be your card base. Glue your stamped panel onto the card. The reason I do the stamping on a separate panel is because the mist tends to cause the cardstock to curl, and by using a separate base you can bed the piece back into shape when gluing it onto the base.
