My clean and simple card from yesterday was made with pink construction paper instead of quality cardstock, which I realized when I saw the waffled edge of the card this morning. Sigh, I had some older construction paper and cardstock pulled to donate to the school and mixed the two up.
So if you are new to card making here’s a tip, dental floss will slide between two pieces of paper bonded with adhesive ( a tape runner like snail adhesive for example) very well, usually without harm to either piece. Here you can see the insert removed from the construction paper cleanly. This is also a handy trick if an embellishment needs to be moved on your design.
The dental floss will help pull decorative paper glued to the construction paper, but it will not be a clean break. So I needed to lay the paper to be saved face down and pull the pink construction paper away shredding it as it was removed.
However, the decorative paper which was the face of the card was fine and the cards are now reassembled and ready to cheer someone’s day. Hope you never need this tip but if you do remember no one is perfect.

Thanks for sharing another tip. I probably would have just thrown out the card thinking it couldn’t be saved. You are obviously skilled at your craft and confident in yourself. Thanks again for sharing.
