Here To Help
Topic: Collage

I needed a card as an encouragement for someone going through some tough times. My immediate thought was the phrase 'hold it together' and I had a flash of all the things we use to do just that.

So I layered a patterned cardstock on the front of a base card and went to town embellishing it with fasteners of all sorts. I included: stitching, binder clip, bobby pin, knotted ribbon, clothes pin, paper clip, padlock, brad, button, hair clip, safety pin, bandaid, staples, washi tape  and velcro!

I used different sets of letter stickers to spell out: "when you know where to look"


Then the message continues on the inside: "you'll find the way to hold it together"

You can see in this view where the velcro was used - to hold the card closed.

I used more knotted ribbon, stapled on, to hold a charm of praying hands.

The white block is just where I covered the personal message I added to the bottom of the card.
