Sympathy for the Loss of a Little One
The grief a mother experiences at the loss of a child - a miscarriage, still birth or young child is beyond words. Artist Elisa Armstrong had experienced a miscarriage a few months before being asked to do this card. Her tenderness, delicacy and hope for new life in Christ is evident in this colorful sketch. It is paired with a bright magenta envelope. The salutation inside was taken from a prayer book for parents of a miscarried child. This card can also be used to remember the birthday of a still born or in other occasions of loss.

Consider the Lilies Thank You Cards

Set of 20 Thank you cards paired with Spring green envelopes.
Symbolizing humility and devotion, lilies are the 30th anniversary flower. As the flowers most often associated with funerals, lilies symbolize that the soul of the departed has received restored innocence after death.
In many paintings and other works of art throughout history, the calla lily has been depicted with the Virgin Mary or Angel of Annunciation. For this reason, it has been associated with holiness, faith and purity.
Additionally, as the cone-line flowers blossom in spring, they have become symbols of youth and rebirth.
