sad to say i am down to my last few pieces of holiday hambly, despite stephanie's magnificent job of scouring the midwest for leftovers and my own valiant efforts at hoarding. so i do feel a certain responsibility in terms of making especially nice cards with them, and i'm pretty pleased with this one, as a matter of fact.
here's another question, "doesn't the adhesive show?" yes. it does, a tiny bit, as you can see here:
there are a couple of ways to avoid this: one is to glue ANOTHER panel, the same size as this one, to the outside back of the card. another is to use the special adhesives made for vellum... which actually might still show a tiny bit, but less than regular old tape runner which is what i've used. the third method is to apply the adhesive neatly around the edges, then don't worry about it. this latter course is almost always the one i choose, and you can see i've done so here. life's too short, imo! hopefully the front of the card is sufficiently attractive to make folks not really dwell on the back of it. on the other hand, it seems like the people of the world who are actively looking to find fault really enjoy succeeding... so this can be an extra element of my holiday gift to them. :)
stephanie has also made a brand new card to inspire you, and it's waiting to do so at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥. won't you hop over and enjoy that right now? you'll be glad you did!
