    You make it look so fun and easy to do. I love using leftovers to save instead of waste. Great hello card! I like the layering for stability idea vs foam 3d dots all the time. Thanks for sharing this with us.

    Brilliant! I’m a foam dotter and yes, you’re right – it’s tedious and aggravating, lol – this is ingenious! Your cards are so colorful and FUN! Love them both :) TSMFS!
