When you give or receive a greeting card that was created by a person, it shows that special care was involved in selecting the card.
One of the reasons I enjoy creating cards is the ability to personalize both the text and the features of the card.
For example, I recently created a card for a couple who moved into a house near the ocean in San Francisco. The view from their balcony includes house boats and sail boats in the marina. They also have two cats that share their home. The elements I included in the card were: a house, cats, and a sailboat. I doubt you will find a ‘Congratulations on your New Home’ card with these three elements included in the greeting card aisle of your favorite store!
Creating handmade cards is enjoyable for me, but even more so for the simple reason that someone will be receiving a card that was designed just for them. Many people still give cards for special occasions today, and some send cards just to let someone know they are thought of by a friend who cares.
As long as there is someone that needs a card, I will continue to create them. I hope you continue to give cards to the people in your life.
