This small panel molding is an excellent choice for use as a wall frame (also called a shadow box).
I used this one for the inside of a three-piece overmantel treatment, but I’ve also used it for ceiling treatments to enhance a crown molding.
As far as I can tell from historic installations of similar moldings, the flat side is usually pointed towards the inside of the wall frame.
However, I don’t believe that is a rule to write in stone, so orient the details how you see fit.
