TIP  The card stock we have used for this section is thick enough to be used on its own. If your chosen cardstock is thinner you may need to glue two sheets together to add more strength. 

2.Use a circle punch to make a half circle tab shape at the top of your card design.

3.Cut your Dovecraft 5x7 card blank in half, layer a piece of plain paper from your First Edition Storyteller pad onto this. Use the circle punch to create another half circle tab at the top of this sheet.

4.Using the other section of the Dovecraft card blank, cut a 15.7cm x 9.5cm strip and layer a piece of Story teller paper design to this piece, ensuring it is not a highly patterned design.

TIP  Use a contrasting colour to the other backing section to add interest.

5.Add Dovecraft Perma Fix tape to the back of the 2cm horizontal  strip on your card design. Adhere the 15.7cm x 9.5cm strip to the back of this strip, making sure the paper is adhered to the centre of the strip.
