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

Life's a bitch! And then you die...

So you might as well craft as much as you can!

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!

What a beautiful memorial. I just lost my grandmother and these are a true inspiration.
