Last weekend I got a card out of my stash to post for a birthday and was horrified to find that the double sided tape that I had stuck the insert in with had morphed into a very dark blotchy line along where I had stuck the insert, it was then that panic began to set in. I had just boxed up over 100 Christmas cards to take to the shop that I sell my cards through, I panicked as some of these cards were made during January & February so have sat around for a few months.
I had to then check each and every card and found the same thing had happened to about 80% of the Christmas cards. I have spent all week cutting the fronts off, re-mounting them and printing new inserts and finally today re-bagging the cards.
So the moral of the story is DON'T USE POUNDLAND DOUBLE SIDED TAPE IT'S NOT ACID & LIGNIN FREE.
Hence the reason why I haven't managed to enter any challenges this week, though I hope to return to the challenges next week in between packing to go away in two weeks.
