Designer Tip: If you click on the clip art or the text in the online designer a red outline will appear with 8 circle around the perimeter. You can re-size the clip art or text by selecting one of the 8 circles on the red line and moving your mouse. If you click "Ctrl" and drag the image it will keep its proportions. The icon that looks like a piece of paper will copy your clip art or text. You can also move the image to the front or to the back by clicking on the up arrow or down arrow. The red circle will revert the clip art back to the original. The trash can will delete the image.
