A Vintage Friendship Card and 450 Quick Dry Adhesive

I am so thrilled to join Helmar this month as their guest designer. I love their products and can not wait to show them off! I have been a fan for a LONG time and their 450 Quick Dry Adhesive was perfect for making my project. The Helmar website includes the wonderful instructions below on using all of their adhesives …they could not make it any guessing!
