I have a couple of friends that I go to antique shops, thrift stores and garage sales with, looking for whatever catches our eye. Sometimes clothes, sometimes stuff for the kitchen, sometimes just odd and ends, like books, cards, photos, records, jewelry- you get the picture. Found this card at an antique store, some old cards are very cool and the artwork on this particular one was intricate. It was torn, so I made two cards out of it. I used the actual card as the outside part and the inside is lined with a recycled shopping bag, I just put them together with a glue stick. The ribbon on the first one was on the original card, way cool!
