The Joy of Giving a Personal Handmade Greeting Card

Posted by: Jewelry by Kat

Have you ever been sick only to get the mail and there it is. A get well card. And not just any get well card. It's a beautiful handmade get well card.  Feeling better?  Probably a little; it comes from the warmth and joy of opening the card.

Snowflake Angel Handmade Card.It really means alot when someone sends you a card, made by hand, in the mail because they were thinking of you, wishing you well or they want to thank you for being you.

We all have busy lives, so in this day and age, it's easier and faster to write a quick email or send an ecard rather than personally handwriting something.  I'm thankful for handmade greeting cards sold at shops like Fairy Cardmaker.

The handmade card is more meaningful to the recipient and just as attractive as any store bought card.  They are unique, one of a kind, not mass produced, cold and impersonal. 

Take Fairy Cardmaker's love handmade card, it is sure to win over someone and melt their heart.  This card is a treasure to be kept forever; what better way to show that someone really cares about you than to show off your beautiful handmade card on your mantle, buffet or bookcase along with your other array of treasures and collectables.

Gift giving is an important part of life and a hand crafted greeting card is a gift.  Every handmade card is a work of art.  When you send one of these cards, you are sending an emotional piece of yourself.  What better way to tell someone you care.  Especially around the holidays.  Receiving a handmade greeting card is like receiving a present.  What a treat it would be to receive the xmas angel card.

When you look at the detail in these two cards, you can see the love they were made with.  Hand made cards are more personal and extra special when you handwrite something in the card.  That is why the Fairy Cardmaker leaves them blank inside.  Because these cards are more personal, we tend to hang on to them longer.  Especially for our children.   There are certain things we keep for our children and in that keepsake box will be hand crafted cards. How cool would it be when looking through that keepsake box, as an adult, to find this masculine birthday card from Aunt Lisa!

When sending a handmade greeting card, you are telling the recipient that you care.  You took time to make it or you took time to find just the right one. And during this time your thoughts are on the recipient. 

Handmade Card - For You, by Fairy Cardmaker.  How often have you thought of someone because of distance or hard times? A lot? Have you sent a thinking of you card so they know that you arethinking of them?

There are benifits to giving hand crafted greeting cards.  You are making someone happy- which makes you happy and it is fun.  These feelings are beneficial to our well being.  These good benefits will keep our handmade greeting card makers around.  I am glad we have these creative and talented people, who with love and care, create cards for us to share with friends and family.  Handmade greeting cards bring alot of joy to the maker, the giver and the receiver. 

What could be better?

I usually don't buy handmade cards or any paper cards at all, because its so easy to send electronic cards now days, but now thinking about it, I see a value of giving someone a real card that they could touch and put on their desk. I hope card-making as a craft will survive the digital age.
Btw, Fairy Cardmaker, I think your cards are very unique and beautiful. :)

Kat, I love the idea that sending a greeting card is like sending an emotional part of you. I think that I will approach the dreaded Christmas card writing session this year with a whole new outlook! Good food for thought for sure!
