1909 Postcard, Art Card

I found a treasure in my husband's late grandparent's house. A box of vintage postcards. Many were from 1906 up to 1940's. (One was dated in the very late 1800's, how cool). One I framed untouched. This one I decided to have some fun with. I love how they are embossed so I left it unprotected. With past projects I would use cut page protectors or mylar. I added the 4 shells on the banner to compliment the theme of the card. Then I used a matte to attach it to an old bookcover that also belonged to his grandmother. My next project with these postcards will be to frame a few with the memo side showing. Maybe using transarencies so each side can be viewed and protected. (Still thinking about that one).
