Sail Away Sympathy Card

Sending Loving thoughts for a sea-loving spirit.

Stamping a sympathy card with sailboats and palm trees.

After a decade of creating cards, I’ve learned a valuable and time-saving lesson.

I usually stamp cards and use them within a few months. But when I don’t have an occasion to use the card I am creating in the near future, I wait before adding a sentiment. This allows flexibility for the card’s occasion when it is needed last minute.

Unintentionally, today’s card patiently waited for a handful of years in my card box until it was time to be given to the perfect recipient! I could have used this card many other times since its creation …  for a Birthday, Father’s Day, Thank You, etc. But instead, I would either pick a different previously made card or stamp something new. 

Sadly, this week I was in need of a Sympathy card. This card’s design was the perfect choice for sending our loving prayers for someone who loved the sea and sailing. I couldn’t have stamped a more perfect card that reminded me of this kind soul! So glad I had saved this card and after adding the sentiment, was all ready to send!
