Birthday Card for Alzheimer's Dad with lots of Texture
This was a special Birthday card I made for my dad who is an Alzheimer's patient. He loves to touch (and take apart) cards, so I tried to use as much texture as I could. I used some retired textured Bermuda Bay (turquoise) paper for the sky and some Certainly Celery striped DSP for the grass. I used some retired Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon for the dirt (lots of texture here!) and a retired metal star brad (these are really heavy!). I attached the sentiment with two antique silver brads to look like nails (my dad loved woodworking). And of course, I included his favorite of all things, a running dog (from the D is for Dog stamp set), stamped in More Mustard, to look like a yellow lab. I think he liked it.
