The bevel will enhance your work by adding depth. The English bevel and the French bevel differ in the angle of the cut in the chosen card stock: oblique, at 45°, or straight, at 90°.
- The 45° bevel (English), suits most documents. You may make it separately, then decorate it with various materials (colored paper, golden Kraft paper...), or make it directly on the edge of the mat.
- The straight bevel, at 90°, adds a contemporary note. You can stack several, with smaller or larger setbacks, like stair steps.
