Instructions too brief and too few illustrations - I just don't quite get it. I understand everything up to and including step 3, and I understand the images at the bottom of the photos, but not how they relate to the top of the images nor instructions 4 & 5. I'd LOVE to understand the rest of the card!! Tnx..
