I bought this last year after taking some Christmas card making classes so I could create my own cards. I now use it frequently in my scrapbooking. I love the way it can make something flat seem like it has shape and form. Depending on how much you use, it dries fairly quickly, though its best to let it sit for a while before putting it in a page protector, etc. Of course, the more you use the longer it will take to dry. You can create some wonderful effects with this stuff.
