This is a very special card that I made for a special someone. The woman receiving it underwent a double mastectomy. We all know, this is a a traumatic experience for anyone and also a time when any degree of gentleness that can be bestowed upon the recipient is absolutely important.
Gentleness is the sentiment I wanted to convey with this beautiful card and envelope, and as it was requested, a little humor as well. Laughter is the best medicine of course!
I began with a brassiere that I designed and selected a soft pink pattern for. To make it even more delicate, I added several layers of antique lace, tulle, and texture throughout with soft embossed papers. For a very feminine touch, the corsage included pretty flowers and a feather. It was important to me that it still keep the message that she is beautiful.
The shaped card does open, and there is a secret message inside just for her that reads: "I'm here to support you". This was customized just for this…
