  2. From the Scan and Cut add the cloud image, duplicate six times. Resize two to 22 by 33 mm, resize two to 20 by 29 mm and resize two to 16 by 24 mm and cut out of white card. Delete all but three of the clouds, resize one to 53 by 78 mm, one to 36 by 52 mm and one to 36 by 54 mm. Add the words ‘Mr and Mrs’ using font FO-A003 and resize to 13 by 56 mm and centralise vertically on to the largest cloud. Using the same font add the wedding date and centralise vertically on to the middle sized cloud and finally add the words ‘Love is in the air’ and centralise vertically on to the smallest cloud. Then save to your Scan and Cut memory.

    Helen’s helpful hint: Always make sure to ungroup the images when you save the clouds and words to your Scan and Cut, or they will not be editable later.

  3. Delete the clouds and draw the words on to the white card, then open up the saved image and this time delete the writing and cut out the clouds. Using the daubers, edge all the clouds with the blue ink. Then stick the three clouds with the writing on to the acetate.
