When I found this old Valentines card it really struck me about how much I've learned - most of the time learned the hard way - about adhesives.
For this card I tried to mimic something I saw in a Card Creations magazine. I took craft wire and twisted it into hearts. But then I couldn't figure out how to get the hearts on the card. So I took hot glue and glued them in the center. Now you can imagine how ugly that looked so I covered up the glue with Stickles. Hindsight 20-20 I probably should have sewn it on the card. (Not even sure if tiny glue dots would have worked. . . .did they even have those back then?)
If you double-click on the picture you can get a closer view of the mess I made. Also notice another oldie-but-goodie stash item - the mulberry paper. Since I still have the card in my stash you can tell I was too embarassed to send it. It's kind of a nice reminder of how much I've learned so maybe it will stay in my stash just for that reason.
I've got one more embarassing one coming up . . . so stay tuned!
