About the Design

comments from Erin:

On December 10 of last year, my 30-year-old best friend was taken from her husband and two small children after battling breast cancer for about 18 months. I started thinking a lot about the kind of holiday card I wished existed for her family and the countless other families who experience heartbreaking losses each year. I know these families often feel their loved ones near during the holidays and hope this card allows them to express that faith and hope in an otherwise dark time.

This is a really wonderful idea, Erin! It's so tasteful and would be so nice for families who have had a loss.

I love the simple design. I think it works for all the colors. But, I chose B, just because it gives it a little more of a holiday feel with the green.

I'm torn on this because I feel like the color would correspond to the nature of the card ( which would be great for additional colorways). In the end I chose green!

This is beautiful! Thank you for remembering those who lost loved ones during the year. I personally know how hard it is when the holidays come around and families are reminded of who isn't with them. I think the design works well with all of the colors you chose! An additional colorway you might want to consider, if you haven't already, is blue. Families may want a color to correspond to the gender of a child who passed away. Beautiful work Erin!

Simply lovely (and heartbreaking at the same time), Erin. I chose B, but all the colors work well.

beautifully done, erin :) i kind of wish the watercolor background was a soft color but i don't think it's necessary.

Not a deal breaker but with a card like this, I think most people would want the year included.
