It's that time of year.
My sister and I were discussing what to get for my mother for a Christmas gift.
My mother lives in a nice retirement apartment "villa" complex. She enjoys sending notes to people on occasion: get well, especially.
We came up with the idea of buying note cards. But, I thought, with my love of collage, to make her a variety of cards to send. My mom is 87 so I thought some "vintage" prints would be fun to work with, as well as whimsical.
This is the set of cards.
A cute little note card set of robins; made from some tags.
These swallow note cards are also made from tags.
The following are examples of vintage "medicine remedy" or elixir ads that I have bought over the years on eBay auctions. I scanned them onto printable fabric.
This is how I put the together in presentation.
I hope she enjoys sending them to her friends.
I try to keep my pledge to make myself or purchase locally handmade presents and products.
