Tuesday Tip....

Have you ever had a card where you have used dimensionals to "pop up" your focal image to give it dimension, but are then faced with the problem of where to put the greeting?  

Well here is a very easy solution. 

Make a "flag strip" from cardstock and stamp your greeting in the center. 

Grab your simply scored and score on either side of the greeting( make sure it is at least as wide as your focal image) and then about 1/4 inches to either side.  

Fold on the score lines and use your square punch to "flag" both ends. 

Now your greeting is high enough to go OVER your focal image that has been pop dotted.
