Index card a day No. 4

The goal was to make a quick and easy card.

Easy meant choosing from the list of weekly prompts, I chose Dictionary.

Then I looked through my stash of dusty patterned paper for something that kind of looked like I could have made it myself, a short-cut if you will. Easy-peasy.

But, this short-cut wasn't very quick, it ended up taking a bit longer than I thought it would. Unlike paint, glue takes awhile dry. I always seem to forget that. Of course, working on it in between dinner and such didn't help, as that kind of stretches out the time a bit.

Things I learned while making this card:

  • It takes time for glue to dry.
  • Stamp pads will dry out and do not last forever....or even 15-years apparently.

  6. Love the ICAD. Giggled with your commentary ... guess there are just no shortcuts! And I agree ... what's this with stamp pads drying out???!!!!!!!

  7. Lol, yes I forget how long it takes glue to dry. I get so impatient sometimes! Your card looks fab! x
