Step 1: I print out 2 pics of the jpeg file I want to use the same size. Always check the file description when you buy a file to be sure that it comes with a printable file. Some files do not come with a printable file. Always save all the other files as well because you never know when you will get a new cutter and need a different type of file for a new machine! :)
Step 2: Cut out one of the pics. Sometimes the pics have a lot of intricate cuts like the first page, so I just cut around the outside and leave some of the white show. Other times they are a lot simpler to cut out such as pic two. However, I always seem to need my xacto/craft/hobby knife to get in to the tight spots!
Step 3: Cut out the pieces from the second pic that you want to attach to the first one you cut out with pop dots. Select as many or as few as you want. It's all about what you like. There is no right or wrong in scrapbooking and card making! After you get them cut out, if you choose to, add all your little white gel pen or black acid free pen marks on the pieces where you want them. It's easier to do them now than to do them once they are sitting on a pop dot! :) Also you can add any gems, googley eyes, etc to them as well.
Step 5: Attach the pieces to the top of the same piece on first pic you cut out with pop dots. They will add dimension to your project. I used black pen a lot of places I would normally use white so that the lines showed up. This is also a more intricate pic, but it doesn't have to be. I could have just pop dotted the planter, heart flowers, bees, heart antenneas, and the arm and hand. It still would have been cute with only a few things popped up!
Step 6: Mail the card to someone to give them a smile!
Here are a couple made with the simpler pic. The pink one has just 7 things popped up, and the green one doesn't have any popped up. I have a slight addiction to bling! lol I hope this tutorial helps!
