Oh, she just added
Happy 75th Birthday!
not too fussy is she! LOL
he loves gardening so I thought I'd do a scatch and sniff with From the Garden maybe
then it will have texture and smell!
any other ideas would be greatly appreciated this is really a challenge for me!

Let me know and if you need something else, I will be glad to search some more.

Oh, and this explains how to do the numbers:

Do you have the swiss dots embossing folder for the cuttlebug? Maybe you could hand make the dots with a stylus??????

HTH!

Do you have a library service near you that provides services for blind patrons or a school that teaches blind students? They might be able to help you.

I know its not happy birthday in braille but texture and contrast in textures is probably the best way to go with the card as well.

Why not just write the greeting in braille by using a paper piercer?

if you can get it typed out in Braille you could reverse print it and then using a paper piercer make the bumps from the reverse of the cardstock.

Maybe you could print the Braille message onto vellum so that you can turn it over and use that as a guide for your card.

heres what i did, i found the braille alphabet online, printed it out, traced/copied the message on the card with a pen, and then used crystal effects to create raised bumps. It worked! My blind friend got the card in the mail and loved it!

You might already have finished your card but here is another idea...use the Big Bite...here is a link to a card my son made and when he did it I thought he could someday make a braille card...

http://www.stampinkub.com/blog/ scroll down to June 13th to see the correct card.

I do have tiny rhinestones.
No ideas are too late, I am in the midst of moving so my stuff is packed untill the week of the 14th.
SO when the time comes to unpack I will have to really bust my butt to get this done! LOL

Thank you for the links...off to check them out!

if your local school has a student who is visually impaired, there is probably someone with the equipment to 'type' in Braille. I taught in a rural school and we had a person who did this full time for a blind student. I'm sure any such person would be glad to help you out....

also...I think the homemade way with the swiss dots would work IF you were careful in the placement

good luck

If you could bring the braille letter images into Word (or even a graphics program if you use one) and line them up then print in mirror image (just make sure you remember which way is up) you could put this on the back side of the card and use a stylus to "reverse dry emboss" the lettering. The bumps would be on the front side of the card then and they would be straight.

I also like the idea of using crystal effects - trick would be to get all the little dots the same size.

I'll be the first to admit it... I am easily confused!
I went online to look up Happy Birthday in Braile.....none of the images look like they should!
Everything I have found that shows the alphabet...an H is the 3 dots in an L shape..well Happy Birthday printed out starts with a singal dot.
WOW! Not so sure I wanna try this! LOL
I am going to MPLS tomorrow... I am gonna try to pop into a library (bigger than this one near me)

Thank you everyone for hte great ideas...and them links!
I went to the one site and got confused (not a difficult thing for me)
andyow... at the very bottome in timy print it says you can download the font.
I downloaded i, then thought "okay, dork! you write the note and print it, hows is theis man gonna read it!?!?"
Well I am sitttng here looking at the page I printed out.... a bunch of dots . and it hit me...STICK RHINESDTONES ON THAT!
Well It took me a couple of hours but I got them all on there 124 little dots!
my bf comes in and says WOW! oops, they fell off!
ok, if he just picked it up and they fall off what is gonna happen when a blind man rubs it?
so I sprayed adhesive on the back (it should soak through, it does when I don't want it too)
then and hour later I thought...one more coat! I left them over night, I"ll update ya all later with a pic!
Thanks again!

Good luck! I hope they all stick. My suggestion was to call schools in your area, or the library. I also grew up in a small town, and we had a machine (or person) who made our textbooks in braille for a student. You could also go to Hallmark, they have at least one braille card in their general birthday card section. (I work there part-time). Hope the rhinestones work!

I have a Braille writer in hand right now, if you still need it. I knew I had one friend that had one, but they both teach and are out of town for most of July. So I will have it for the next week or so if you want me to write it.

I still can't believe the library wouldn't let me use theirs.

Default Braille Card

I know this is late but I just saw the posting. I am a teacher for the blind. Your card looks perfect. The one dot before the "H" you were talking about is the capital letter sign in braille. (there is a special sign to denote capital letters in braille). Since you already have the braille alphabet, another way to do the letters in braille on the card is to use brads-you wouldn't have the falling off problem that you had with the rhinestones. Although it would take a lot of brads. Another idea would be to use puff paints. when it dries it leaves a nice raised texture. To add a tactile picture, stamp a picture (like a cake or something smallish) and trace it with the puff paint.

Hope this helps and I know your friend will love the card and the effort you put into it!

I was just thinking you could use a paper punch and punch out the circles in the right places.... then either leave it like that or use the punched paper for s stencil. I might have to go play....

I would suggest the paper piercing as the only method to use. You would need to do it backwards (turn paper over as the front after piercing) as the dots need to be raised, not resessed. It would be tedious, but still very doable.

Using the Swiss Dots embossing folder would not work as it would make the dots too far apart for the cell. The dots need to be within the "cell" as described in written Braille explanations. This is very important as there is a particular set distance inbetween the dots within the cell.

Again, the process is doable and is a neat project to undertake. It can be appreciated by the sight impaired person. I would also include in written words how the card was created, describing the method. Yes that explanation would need to be read to the sight impaired person, but the description of the method would most likely be much appreciated.

These are just my thoughts as I have also done cards using ASL graphics.

This is a great thread! My DD is blind and there are a lot of great ideas here. In the future, if anyone needs anything in Braille, pm me.
Also, did you all see the unveiling of the Louis Braille coin commemerating his 200th birthday? It will be released next year and has readable Braille on it!

It is very coool about the coin with braille on it. This country really need to make the paper money different sizes like other countries. That would make it much easier for the blind and visually impaired. I have a student who folds his money different ways for the different bills but always asks for his paper change in one dollar bills so he knows he won't be cheated by a clerk, for instance, giving him a one dollar bill instead of a five. A very clever boy!!

When we lived in Wisconsin, we had a wonderful friend who became blind due to a terrible car accident. I would make cards for him, as well as a wonderful stamp artist who is blind who lives in England, using paper piercing, papers that have a nap to them, ie, suede, velvet, etc. so that they could feel the texture. Also had an idea and didn't actually do it, but to put a tiny music box element in the card. Such a great idea about using braille.

Where do you find the music elements. I would love to use those in a card. Thanks so much for your response - your fabric cards sound lovely.

My grandson is blind. I took the Hadley School for the Blind braille course. I will be glad to braille the message for you. Are you using a regular size card?
