Take Heart Greeting Cards

These greeting cards celebrate the art of encouragement with micropoetry and images from original watercolors. Each card is:

~ 5” x 7” (ideal for giving & framing)
~ Printed in Oregon, USA on 100 lb cardstock
~ Hand embossed in the lower, right-hand corner with my æ signature
~ Accompanied by a translucent, vellum envelope
~ Blank inside

Bonus: I donate 10% of the Take Heart profits to The Studio at Living Opportunities, a wonderful Oregon organization offering people with intellectual and developmental disabilities a place to create. The staff and artists take heart every day. I’m thrilled to give to them.

Retail: Want to order cards for yourself? I can accommodate retail orders as sets of 10 (one of each card design + 10 envelopes in a single cello bag) for $25 + $5 s/h to US addresses. To order, contact me.

Wholesale: Have a shop and want to carry the cards? Here is the catalog. Contact me, and I’ll send you the wholesale order form.
