Altered Rolodex Card


I recently signed up for a Rolodex Card Challenge through an online art group I belong to and this is the card I came up with! It was a little challenging because the size is only 2 1/4" x 4" and the cards are really flimsy but I managed to find a couple of small stamps that would fit my Texas theme and I glued 3 cards together to make them sturdy enough for trading. Thanks for stopping by my nest!

Take Care - Robin

Cute! I'm just glad to know that altered rolos are alive and well. (See my last post) I'd love to swap sometime.

Luv the idea of altering a Rolodex card. How cool is that? Living in San Antonio and seeing what you did with this Alamo image is even cooler!

This is really cool! I was just decorating a rolodex card a few days ago. They definitely need shoring up by gluing more cards together. Good tip!!

I love how your rolodex cards turned out. That star button adds the perfect touch.
