Instant corrugated paper!
Since this is for a photo mat, lets give it just a hint
of an edge
to Image | canvas size. We are going to increase
the size of the canvas just a bit so that we can add
an edge to give our mat a sense of realism.
Go to Effects | 3DEffects
| Drop Shadow. Choose a small shadow that is not
too dramatic. Remember this is about the size of cardstock,
so the shadow should be slight. Use the settings in
this screenshot or play around with your own.
Now you can make corrugated mats, tags, etc with no 3rd party
