Eddie & Charlie

A wonderful family welcomed triplet boys a month ago, much earlier than expected at only 24 weeks! This week they shared the devastating news that 2 of the boys had peacefully taken their last breath and grew wings. I was shattered when I heard their sad news so I went about making a keepsake for them. This shadow box card is what I ended up making. I know its not much but at least they will know that we are thinking of them.

Card ingredients include:

Papers: Kaiser Craft 'Pitter Patter' paper pack, white shimmer cardstock, blue glitter cardstock.
Dies: Spellbinders Grand Circle, Memory Box Precious Cloud, Maryanne Creatables Feet, Lala Land Folding Banner, DV 'A Little Mint' Alpha.
Other: Gathered Twigs Distress ink, ribbon, sailboat charm, brads, rhinestones.

I'm playing along with:

  4. Heartbreaking news, but your heartfelt and thoughtful project will certainly convey loving thoughts. This is creative and tasteful and I hope you found peace in making it, and I hope the family is finding joy in the third baby amidst their sorrow. Thank you for sharing this at SOS. Personally, art is therapeutic and i love seeing the ways fellow crafters share their gifts during trying times.
