To start with, I made you a card.
Wasn't that great fun?! Well, yes, for sure, but a hamster mama has to draw the line or next thing you know, she'll slip on the ones that hit the floor, break a hip, and then where will we be?! Once I splained all that, Hammy smiled and went quietly into my shirt pocket while I spent an hour chasing down all the little schpheres.
- CAS Mix Up: Bokeh, plus stamping, watercoloring, and die-cutting.
- Lost Coast Portal to Creativity: Anything goes.
- TIME OUT: Loving. Sad to say, I have several friends going through health challenges who could use this loving message.
- Several of you were concerned because you like to display the cards you receive, so that was a deal breaker. Although others readily allowed that backless cards could be either clipped for display or leaned against something, so that wasn't a deal-breaker for them.
- I did find out from two friends that there is a die out there for a stand that can be attached to the back of a card front for display, similar to the brace on a picture frame. Unfortunately, I think it would take me just as long to make and attach the brace as it would to slap the card front on a base ~ and the brace would prevent me from being able to write on the back, which is important to me.
- A couple of you like to have more room to write messages than on one side, so the idea wouldn't work for those situations.
- For some of you backless cards don't appeal because you enjoy taking the time to decorate the inside of the card as well as the front.
- Some of you noted that an extra layer would have to be attached to the back of the card fronts when Copics bleed or desktops are messy and stain the back of the front panel.
- Another noted that we wouldn't be able to use our "handmade by" stamps and it would be more difficult to send checks or cash.
- Another mentioned that backless cards should only be sent to fellow card artists because non-card-making friends and family wouldn't understand. I think we all agree with that.
