This one is part of a new series of "dementia friendly" projects I'll be posting on my blog - these cards will be based mostly in images with very few words used. Images are universal and while people may not be able to register written words anymore, images and shapes can still spark something in the mind. I made this one for my Mom who has advanced dementia and doesn't register written words anymore. I'm hoping the 3-D images will also appeal to her and give her something to play with rather than a flat piece of paper. She is the inspiration for this new series.
I used a pocket card from Artfully Sent and combined it with the cupid image from Artiste. Our Heart embossing folder adds a bit of texture and I highlighted the heart cut out with my journaling pen and a bit of Metallic Marker.
I used more of the Gold Metallic Marker on the inside to highlight the 3-D pop up heart (Artfully Sent Cartridge) and more of the Gold Glitter paper for the center heart. I used my Explore to write the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment (Artbooking Cartridge) and then filled it in with our Warm Gray 4 Shinhan Touch Twin Marker. I didn't want a whole lot of extra pieces that could be picked off so writing the sentiments directly onto the card inside works great.
The card base is retire Ivy Lane with some very old Jingle accents (cupid and arrow). Using up a bit of stash as I have some serious over flow in that department.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy my new "dementia friendly" series. If you have any suggestions for what you've found sparks interest for friends or family that are affected by dementia I'd love to hear from you!
