    Q: nanamouse says: "I would like to make a dome card but am not sure how."
    A: A quick search showed several card designs with a slightly bowed front - this is done by creating a front panel just slightly wider than the base, and adhering it only at the sides. Check out the Bendi Frame Card tutorial for step-by-step instructions!
