218: As for me.  Psalm 3

I scribed this card in celebration of the requiem of my Aunt - a Poor Clare Nun.  This reading is used every week by anyone who prays the Divine office.  It is the regular scripture for Compline after Evening Prayer II for Sunday. I like to print this design on ribbed 330gsm white card which lends it an extra, almost shimmering, dimension.  With 135gsm luxury white envelopes.

407: They will see God.  Revelations 22:4

This was originally scribed to adorn the walls of the hermitage of a fellow solitary. In return I was sent an enormous monastic rosary, which is perfect for sleepless night vigils  -  it doesn’t get lost amongst the bed covers!  This design also makes an excellent greeting card for those who are suffering from poor health, or even a condolence card for the recently bereaved.  It is left blank so that you can adapt it to your own purposes.  Printed and hand finished on heavy textured card with a 120gsm laid envelope.  Lovely.

250: We are citizens of heaven.  Philippians  3:20

Originally designed for an ordinand to the diaconate, this verse from the New Testament has also proved very popular both as a birthday card and as a "with sympathy" card - Send it to any guy who might deserve the accolade!  Hand finished on heavy weight textured white card (300gsm) with a luxury wove white envelope (120gsm).  Standard size has proved especially suitable for a gentle line of sympathy.  Presentation size - for presentation at an ordination, significant birthday, retirement - or for any other significant occasion.
