The Verdict of the Forest Friends Card Kit
The first thing I have to comment on is the card front bows, this could be due to using wet glue instead of something lighter like a tape runner, but I think it has more to do with it being lightweight cardstock. Understandably when gifts are being created budgets need to be kept to a minimum. My recommendation after making the first card would be to back the frame and the card blank onto a higher GSM cardstock which will help improve the rigidity of the card. When light is shining from behind the card, you can see the Collall but it is still wet at the time of writing, but this may improve as it dries. Having said that when it is displayed in natural light coming from in front of the card, it is not visible at all. For anyone who has been with me for some time, you will know that the whole purpose of trying out all the items that came with magazines was to decide whether they would keep a place in my craft stash which I am trying to organise and where appropriate reduce. By nature of the fact this is a paper-based kit, there is no decision to make because once I have used it, it will all be gone unlike products like embossing folders and dies. If you are new here, you may want to look back at the post about shopping your craft stash
which began this whole process or maybe the Midweek Minimise Craftroom series
where the theory is put into practice.
