Handmade Encouragement Card, for Travel or a Move, Customized Maps

Details

This handmade greeting card is encouraging to someone who is leaving because of a move, travel or other journey. Based on the specific maps of their beginning point, it also includes maps of their destination location so it is geared specifically for your loved one. The main greeting on the front is "God Bless you on your Journey..." and has a small, single, quilled, red paper rose as an accent near these words, complete with tiny green paper leaves. The rose ties in perfectly with the butterflies within this card. Two butterflies grace the front, and one is on the back. Flying on their journey, with black dashed lines reflecting this, these butterflies are made of actual maps, which are closeups of the starting point and destination. Tiny three-dimensional rivets mark the exact cities. Two layers for each butterfly is used, with the bottom layer made of quality cream colored paper, and all the wings are three-dimensional. A soft green quality scrap-booking paper is the base, which helps to create borders for the card's front, back and greeting. Matching cream paper is used for the inside greeting, which can be personalized as well. This inside greeting on the top portion of the card includes the Bible verse Deuteronomy 31:8, "The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." A few red, blue and gold stars in different sizes are used as accents, and the edging of the paper itself is scalloped. The inside greeting on the bottom portion of the card "We will be thinking of you and praying for you during your time at " ", and wherever the Lord may lead you!", but it can be customized as well, with your loved one's name as well as destination, wherever that may be. The scalloped edge of this portion of the inside paper also has tiny heart punch-outs, making the edge look a little lacy and allowing the soft green paper to show through.

The back of this card, along with the single "butterfly map" and the base map also has the final greeting of "Handmade with love", accented by a small three-dimensional red heart. This greeting, as well as the main one on the front, are both placed upon layers of ovals, with scalloped edging to tie into the scalloping in the center of the card.

This card comes with a regular invitation-sized blue or green envelope, which is fine for hand delivery of the card. If, however, the card will be mailed, a handmade three-dimensional envelope in your choice of color can be provided at a small additional charge. The three-dimensional envelope would be made out of card stock, and resembles a small, rectangular box, perfect for protecting the quilled rose and three-dimensional parts of the card during transport. To send this in the mail it will cost more postage than a regular letter.

Would you like the inside greeting personalized? I can do that. Just let me know what you would like it to say or the name of who this is for! Also, this greeting card could be custom made to include any greeting you wish, both on the front and in the center so it would be perfect whether it is actually to send to someone who is moving, traveling or going on a long journey. Just let me know your preferences in order to make it perfect for your situation. Contact me by clicking on the blue button near the bottom of the page that says "Contact this Seller" so we can discuss it via email.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

The Idea for this card was inspired from a card that was pinned on Pinterest from Purple Paw Crafts. I loved the idea and just expanded upon it and tailored it for a young woman we know who has headed off for boot camp and the Navy.

More Info

The Bible is the best source for inspiration and encouragement for anything life hands us, and the Lord has promised that His Word will not return void. (So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. - Isaiah 55:11) When making my cards, I do pray for the intended recipient, and if you feel free to share that information with me about your loved one, I will do the same for them.

Policies

Thank you for choosing All The Wright Stuff! My aim is to provide customers with exceptional value and customer service. Please let me know how I am doing :)

Payment:
I accept PayPal and most recently, PayPal Express, at this time. PayPal Express is very handy, fast and with fewer steps involved which is great for all concerned. And, even if you do not want or have a PayPal account you can still use PayPal to pay via credit card. If you are having trouble making a payment, please contact me. If payment has not been received within 72 hours the item(s) will be re-listed unless other arrangements have been made.

Shipping:
I ship first class within 1-3 business days from receipt of payment, unless it is a custom order. Your purchase will be packed with the utmost of care and I do try to recycle and reuse as much as I can. The item(s) will be shipped via USPS within the United States or to Canada, unless you contact me with your preferred shipping provider.

If you are in another country, and would like to purchase an item, or items, from my shop, contact me, and I will calculate postage for you. If you are willing to pay the postage I calculate, I will add shipping to your country on the item(s) you wish to purchase. Most recently I have shipped to the United Kingdom. The package arrived in nine days, just to give you an idea of timing.

Custom Orders:
If there is an item you see in my shop that you would like in another color, etc, contact me. I welcome custom orders. If I can make what you want with supplies I have on hand, I will not require a deposit. I will e-mail you pictures of the item(s) when it is done, and will list it if you like it. It will be shipped after you pay.

I love creating new items as well, so feel free to contact me with your request. If I will have to purchase supplies to make what you want, then I will need a deposit for the cost of supplies. You will pay the rest of the agreed amount once the item is completed, you have approved the pictures, and I have posted it. If for some reason beyond my control I am unable to finish your order, any deposit you have made will certainly be refunded.

Custom orders ship within 7-14 business days, depending upon how much time is involved in making it. A different color of similar items I have in stock takes much less time than an original design. If the item is large, heavy or bulky I may need to send it Parcel Post. I will calculate the postage for you before shipping it. If you are willing to pay the postage I calculate, I will add shipping to the item(s). Do you need something right away? Contact me to discuss putting priority on your order and shipping it via a quicker method.

Refunds and Exchanges:
Please contact me if you need to return an item. If we agree that an item needs to be returned, I accept returns within 15 days from receipt as long as the item is unused and in it's original condition. Your refund will be in the amount of the purchase price, and this does not include shipping cost. The original sale price, minus shipping, will be credited. All sales are final on special orders.

Please feel free to contact me if there is any problem with your order and I will try to make it right. I desire that you, the customer, be completely satisfied with your purchase. You can contact me about any questions you may have.

It's a pleasure serving you. Happy customers make me happy!

Thank you so much, and stop in again soon.

This handmade wooden spatula is all that I had hoped for. It's both lovely and functional. The grain is beautiful and the unique labor intensive sanding process makes for a satiny smooth surface. I like the extra touch of the leather hanging loop. I just used it for the first to saute garlic and olive oil and the design fits beautifully in my hand. Thank you for a special product, exceptional customer service, careful packaging and fast shipping.

Wendy, I LOVE the earrings. Can't wait to wear them. Thanks so much!

SleepyCatDesigns

It's been a pleasuring working with you as a buyer and fellow artisan. Thanks for the great interaction and smooth transaction!

I cannot recommend Wendy and her family highly enough! Wendy's tatted items look beautiful in the photos, but my earrings that came which she custom made to my size requirement are just gorgeous! I will enjoy wearing this lightweight and lovely design over and over, I'm sure. Just exquisite work and quality!

My wooden spatula made by David, Wendy's 13-year-old son, is fantastic! It has a thicker handle than some of my spatulas and that makes it so much easier to hold and grip with my stiff arthritic hand...what a blessing! And the quality is top-notch as well. Obviously is quite committed to providing quality designs, just like his mother.

My many communications with Wendy regarding my order prior to purchase and then throughout purchase and receipt were exceptionally pleasant! It is obvious the Wright Family are interested in taking good care of their customers, as well as providing beautifully crafted items of the highest quality. I could not be happier and hope to order more "stuff" from the Wrights in the future!
