    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Tinytoes4 asks: "I love the look of the acetate card but often wonder what glue is the best, because it will be seen from the inside. Do you recommend double sided tape?"
    A: I feel like I get the best hold with double sided tape... when I make acetate cards I usually make the Acetate Tent Card so the back is concealed inside the tent. For regular folded cards, I adhere an identical die cut to the inside of the acetate panel so the tape is hidden.
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Bessie has an idea for the Accordion Style Card Holder: "What a great idea. You really designed this beautifully. I like the decorative edging. I think I'll make the inserts permanent by taping to the accordion fold! A wonderful gift idea! "
