As a two-time ovarian cancer survivor, it is important for me to give back to a cause that is close to my heart (you can read about my latest cancer journey, here). I wanted to create something that gives someone hope, strength, shows support and a sign of thanks.
Design by Occasion took part in the creation of two different custom graphic illustrations. As I was sketching out my ideas for my first card design, I was reminded of my annual walks at the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer. I envisioned crossing the finish line as a winner, a survivor, a fighter who has won the battle! This was the inspiration for my first card. For my second card design, I was inspired by all the caregivers and supporters who have lovingly helped us through it all. A custom graphic illustration of a woman dressed in teal, holding an ovarian cancer ribbon was designed and created as a thank you for their support.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Design by Occasion’s teal cards will go to the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) to support their mission to raise awareness and promote education about ovarian cancer.
Purchase of our custom illustrated teal cards will soon be available in our Etsy shop. The cards are 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” and printed on a white cardstock and embellished with Swarovski Crystals. Both card designs come with a matching hand-lined envelope.
The Design by Occasion teal cards signifies kindness, gratitude and love, with an intention to make those who inspire us be reminded of the “everyday” gift. What better way to show your support and give to your care giver, your team or the survivor who inspired you, by making a purchase of one of our special teal cards.
