Masculine Sympathy Card


More lovely weather again today in Ontario and the end is not in sight yet. I don’t think this is our Indian Summer….such an odd name for a few nice days in the fall after a cold spell….although its usually warm days after the first frost which we haven’t had yet so who knows what will happen later on. Hubby wonders about things like this; I pretty much just enjoy each day regardless of anything else.



Unfortunately we all need sympathy cards from time to time and this time I made one that would be suitable to be sent to a male. Sometimes if a man lives alone and has a family member pass away, its hard to fine a suitable card for him. 







I used the Memory Box window frame and die cut it from an old greeting card. The picture behind it came from another recycled note card. Yes, I’m both thrifty and I like to keep as much out of the recycle/garbage that I can. There is always a piece of thin plastic behind the window to look like glass. I just use plastic sleeves that embellishments come in….yup, another thrifty thing.

The background paper is from the stash; twine was wrapped around it and then it was mounted on a Kraft card base. I took two real feathers and one die cut feather; glued them together and then tied them with a piece of twine. Then I tied a bow through a wine coloured button and glued it over top. It’s hard to see the button unless you enlarge the photo by double clicking on it. The sentiment is a peel off.



That’s all for a lovely Wednesday, September 13, 2017



Cheers

Violet
