how do you say goodbye

Making this card for my friend was the most difficult one to make.  How do you say good-bye?  How do you plan you life from here?  I loved the quote that said  “I didn’t know that grief was described as fear”.  Where do you turn, how do you handle it all?  This man was involved in so many different benevolences.  So many community things.  It’s not a simple death as mine will be.  There is so much complication.  I feel so for her, my friend, who must deal with all these legal things.  I found this card today and wanted to CASE it.  It seemed the perfect one.  And now I am satisfied.

You can’t see the detail in the picture.  The top layer is popped up with the entire back covered with foam tape.  in the square on top of the water colored back ground I cut the same Tattered lace die and glued it down.  then the top tie rests over it inside the frame and is adhered to the front of the card.  it has a lot of dimension.

  1. what a lovely card for such a sad occasion.

  2. There is a lot of dimension and love in your card. There is a lot of life too as your friend lived a full one and those left behind can recall his story and his life. A very wonderful and heartfelt card.

  3. Gorgeous card. Beautiful description.
