Description

-------------------------
5 vintage fortune cards
1 1/4 " sq.
32 mm sq.
-------------------------

Aren't these cards wonderful?

Back in the day, department stores often had large scales you could step on, insert a nickel and get your weight and a fortune. Well, it's 2017 and you can still get a fortune. In fact, you can get 5 of them!

These original cards are printed on heavy cardboard and look great in almost any mixed media project - collage, visual journals, greeting cards, shadow boxes, ATCs, altered books, what-have-you. If you're into altered books, showcase a card through a window cut into the preceding 5 or 6 pages. Looks great.

For the holiday season I make the Christmas crackers and always include one of these fortune cards.

Several years ago, when RubyDog's Art House was a bricks and mortar store, I hosted an altered jigsaw puzzle collaboration. The sample in the 3rd image is from that project. Clo Laurencelle did this piece as a bit of a spoof on me. The cards read: " Your ideas at times are rather large. Sometimes you undertake more than you can accomplish. ....you are apt to get excited and make things lively." Pretty accurate observation from one of my customers!

If you order more than one packet I will make sure you do not receive any duplicate fortunes.

I ship via the most economical option available with Canada Post. Canada Post is incredibly reliable, but can be slow. Although not common, It can take up to 2 weeks for a parcel to reach a U.S. destination and 4 to 8 weeks for an International address.

If you are in a rush to receive your goodies and are willing to pay the extra cost, I'm happy to send your parcel via a quicker option. If you prefer faster shipping, just let me know and I'll investigate the cost for you.
