First, with your card closed, slip in a piece of lightweight or see-through paper or other material. I used the backing that comes with our CTMH My Acrylix stamp sets. Line it up with the top or bottom edge of the card window to cover the part you will NOT be writing on. In the example below, I want to put a word at the top, so I line it up like this:
When you open the card, hold this sheet in place as a guide. I now know how far down I can safely write and not infringe on the window opening. Whew!
I did the same thing when writing at the bottom of the window, just lining it up with the bottom of the window instead. Hope this tip saves you from revealing a bit too much too soon. Now I have to tell my sister not to read my blog before IT reveals too much, too soon! ;) Later, gators!
OH! Before I forget, I am entering a contest to win a Cricut Expression so here is a pic of me in my scrapbook room in the midst of crafty CHAOS!!!! *sigh*
