No I am not speaking a foreign language!! I have just discovered the delights of Safmat which is "An acid free, self-adhesive, transparent film for use with your desktop printer. Safmat film is virtually invisible when applied, so only your printed text or image can be seen!" This is ideal for printing text on and then you can place it where ever you like.
and Letraline tape -
"Fed up with getting into a tangle with glue and strips of coloured tape?
With Letraset’s Letraline, crisp sharp edges are no longer a problem. Letraline Flex-a-Tape is great for creating consistent controlled curves as well as perfectly straight, matt coloured lines " This is far easier to control than peel off strips!!
Both fantastic aids to card making and available from Letraset - the clever people who make those fab Promarkers - try some!!!
Hope you have a great day!
