Today I finally used up almost the entire stash making blank art card bases. This is actually what I'd been saving all the paper for. However, I like to be able to put together many cards at once, and it's time consuming that way, so it's not very often I get a day like today to be able to do it.
After a few hours of spray-glueing, measuring, and trimming, I've got a nice stack of art card "canvases", ready to fill with...who knows?
LOTS of trimming!
Some are still a little too thin; they'll need at least one more layer of stiff paper glued on. I will also glue a layer of scrap magazine paper (from the previously mentioned paper horde) to the backs: it makes a nice, subtly patterned surface for signing and dating.
