This card was for my dh's boss. His mother had been ill for a number of years. He and his wife would make several trips to visit with her. I met her about 35 years ago. She lived in NJ in a large old home that has many of its original doors, knobs and wavy glass. It's a shame that so many young people don't want to preserve some of the things from the past. Of course, things weren't as energy efficient as they are now, but there sure were some lovely items. I've got to work on my craft/sewing room soon, and I think it would be wonderful to have some old doors to make desks or tables out of.
The card is similar to what I saw another member do. I've always thought the sanding of white core paper was a nice affect, so this is my first attempt at it. I wanted to use more masculine colors and I think these were just right. I didn't want to put any "bling" on the card, but it needed something else, so I cut out three buttons from some embossed cardstock. The card was finished off with a few very crooked lines around the card. (I know, you're not supposed to expose your mistakes, but I know these jump out off the card.) Lol.
