So, I made these for my family members to remember my grandmother using some playing cards found at the thrift store.  I still have about 25 left to make and I know they're probably not technically ATCs since they won't be traded, but I figured this was the best place for them.  I know I could kick it up a notch by adding ribbon, stitching, glitter, etc but I kind of like the simplicity and am not sure if I want to take away from that.  What do you think?





I'll update my blog with new cards as I finish them!

These are beautiful. They don't need anything else. Such a lovely keepsake for everyone who was touched by your grandmother.
Gives me inspiration to create something similar for my family who have lost both Marshie and Grandpa

I, too, think they don't need any more decorations... they're already very beautiful! <3
How did you transfer the images and text to the card?

I used the packing tape transfer method -

Print pics using a printer with toner, press packing tape over image, soak in warm water for 5 minutes and rub the paper off the back.  This leaves you with a translucent image that's usually still sticky!
