For this card I have used from the pack -

Background - For this I have used the "shaving Foam" technique that you can read all about on our FREE download Mica Ideas Sheet below.. How to Dome - Take your card blank.. Cut the Love Birds die in to the front of the card. As this is a die that will stay attached to your card stock, trim down the spine of the card blank and across to the base of the love birds die cut, then trim in from the other side of the card to the base of the love birds die cut... This way the top portion of the card front will fall away and reveal just the die cut, attached to a thin bar along the base of your card (approx 1.5" high) Now measure the height of this bar just to check it is 1.5" Then dome your card front and see how shallow or deep you wish for your dome to be.
For instance let's say you want the dome to be 5" wide, cut a piece of card 1.5" x 6" Score down each side at 0.5" and attach to the inside of your card to create a dome.
To attach the panel add glue to the two scored areas, and apply one side to the edge of your card blank and the other side to the edge against the spine (still attaching it to the main front panel, don't be tempted to cross the spine and stick it to the insert side of the card).
