Yesterday the sun shone ... well it didn't rain ( that's for sure!) and we went to a wedding! I could show pictures of the bride and groom ( my stepson Dan and his new wife Jodie), but the photos are not brilliant.. everyone seemed to move when I clicked the camera!! lol but I did make a card.. no surprises there then?
I wanted to make something that wasn't the norm, but was still pretty, and bought some rub-ons. yes rub-ons! not peel-offs! I think I would have been better buying peel-offs, as these particular rub-ons didn't work!! You would think it was simple... cut them out lay them in said order on the card, rub them off with said enclosed stick! I am old aficionado at using rub-ons. I used to use Letraset in all it's glory for years, so have the right tools, and I tried those, but nothing. I rubbed hard and and I even dented the card trying to get the rub-on's onto the card! Was it the paper I used? Was it the tool? I even re-read the instructions! me who never reads instructions! nah! nothing! de nada!They did come off the backing in a fashion but left behind some of the colour and letters!! The card was a disaster! So an hour before we are due to leave, (I do tend to leave things to the last minute) I had to compromise and use a couple of toppers and the lovely stickers by the girls' paperie!! I did manage to get 2 or 3 of the rub-ons off onto a new card, but was extremely disappointed. Needless to say I won't be buying Papermania rub-ons again! btw in case you wondered I didn't buy the toppers, they came in a box of goodies I bought from a friend a while ago.. and have proved extremely useful!
Lesson learnt stamp it!! lol
Have a great day!
