SheetLoad of UFO Cards (UFO Post #8)

Hello all!  Yes, I am still working diligently on all of my unfinished projects.  This set is a SheetLoad of Cards from the February 2022 sketch.
The patterned papers I used were some that I have received years ago in a paper exchange, so I don't know what brand they are.  I did have a big crafting mishap with these cards.  Last year, I purchased several of these Sticky Thumb adhesive rollers from American Crafts.  I used them to adhere the papers on one another and then these cards sat for months on my desk without being finished.  I am glad I didn't finish them right away, because the adhesive became brittle and cracked apart if the paper moved at all!  The image below is what the papers looked like.  You can see exactly where the adhesive was, but it was hard and detatched from the other paper, even though it was super duper sticky to begin with.  I absolutely DO NOT recommend that adhesive!  I ended up redoing everything with Bearly Art precision tip glue because I knew that would stick with no trouble.
The stamp I used was from the Raisin Boat Flourishing Thoughts stamp set and used Leather ink to stamp it. The finishing touch was a flower die cut.
Here is a look at all the cards I created!  I was able to get 7 cards instead of 6 because of the non-directional print of the paper and used the scraps to get card #7.  If you are interested in seeing all the other UFO posts I have been working on, you can CLICK HERE.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
