This morning I feel like a very heavy weight has been lifted off of my shoulders!
On Monday night I FINALLY finished the crazy task of duplexing all of the New Year's cards I've been working on. Normally I would use a spray adhesive and the task would go fairly quickly, but I wanted to avoid all those fumes. My trial run using PVA didn't work out very well; so much of the glue was absorbed by the cotton letterpress paper that the paper curled like crazy. I only have so many cookbooks to stack on top of them to get them to dry flat... In the end, I used double-sided tape on all four sides of the card and another strip down the middle. It worked like a charm, but oh my gosh did it take forever. It also took a lot of double-sided tape!
Yesterday morning I trimmed the cards to their final size. All 240 of the suckers.
Each card is a paired with a recycled kraft paper envelope.
Last night I packed them up to be shipped today. Wow, what a relief to have this project done. Everything else has been on hold to make sure I could finish this before the baby comes!
Now I just have one more editing project left, which I hope to finish today, and then I can get back to cleaning, nesting, baking, and playing with tiny baby clothes! :)
