#TBT: Mom’s 1993 card

My mother went through various phases of crafting. She exhibited some addictive/creative behavior!

One of those phases was with handmade cards, using some heavy plastic-like material and a tracing tool to make an impression on the plastic. She then colored the raised portion of the card. The process took time and patience!

She had some name for this, which I have long since forgotten. [UPDATE: Sister Karen tells me it’s tarjeta.  I find very few hits for this word on line, but it appears to be a Brazilian and Argentine craft.]

Mom’s 1993 Christmas card was handmade, and I cherish it.
