May I offer….
A One of a Kind Ornament, Gift Card or Greeting Card
AGE: Holiday Collection 2017
ITEM: Starting with 2 pieces of cardstock (modern), 1 white and 1 gold, I added a piece of paper lace (Victorian, C.1880), some white rayon ribbon (C.1950), a pair of Gold Dresden Stars (C.1950), some cut-out birds (modern) and then, as the main focal point, a portion of an old Die Cut (Victorian, C.1880). The die cut features a Blue Bird guarding her nest, the one she built inside an old show. The sentiment to the top left of the card is JOY and I stamped the back of the card in black ink with BEST CHRISTMAS WISHES. The balance of the back of the card can hold a personal handwritten sentiment.
Although it is not easily seen, there is a poem on the bird piece which reads:
Although I Cannot Speak a Word,
I'll Take a Message Like a Bird,
Well Off You Go! Find Out My Friend,
And Wish Him Christmas Joys No End!
With Best Wishes!
The card was Printed in Bavaria by Ernest Nister, London
SIZE: Not including the white ribbon hangar, the card section alone measures 3-7/8" x 5-7/8".
USE: Christmas Card, Christmas Decoration, Gift Card, Wall Ornament
FINAL COMMENTS: Each individual piece of the card was hand glued so that no ripples would occur. Of course, if the hangar is not desired, just clip it off. While I do not have a white envelope to hold the card, the piece will be shipped in a crystal clear holder. Why pay a lot of money for a card that is going to be tossed away, when you can spend a bit of cash on one that will last (perhaps) another 100 years!
ONE OF A KIND!
