Welcome to my blog, The Diamond Dragonfly
This card is my (Vintage Square with 2 buttons), entry into the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown July Blog Hop (with four unique prompts).
What is vintage to me? I see some very beautiful vintage cards yet I wondered how Granny would have made a Christmas card at the Bras Coupe in the 1930’s 35 miles north of Maniwaki by dog sled?
I walked into my bedroom the other day, as late afternoon sun hit the bed and I started to cry. It took me back to the cottage with my Mom napping, curled up with her book, as light filtered in the window through the tree branches. I sleep on that antique bed, hence the flashback.
We were in Maniwaki burying Mom and Dad a few weeks ago and we stopped at my Grandparents home for pictures. My children have been spending this summer at Cedar lake turnabout, so my mind wanders to wonderful memories from the past easily.
I stamped with SU baked brown sugar ink onto a paper bag and used lace pulled off an old slip because this is what Granny would have had on hand. The card would have been made some recycled light weight cardboard. I used card stock, clear buttons and pearls. This card is 5X5. The pearls are placed on the candles and seem lopsided.
