Designed by Vanessa as a twenty-something battling breast cancer, this greeting card is intended for anyone dealing with any type of cancer, giving them a free pass to “pull the cancer card.”
Included as a gift inside the card is a detachable, business-card-sized “cancer card” that can be kept in a wallet and pulled out any time chemo brain strikes or the line at the grocery store is just too long.
Card front is dark blue and features a colorful typographic design incorporating the words:
not getting your way
waiting in line
stuck in traffic
Inner top text reads:
don’t stress out, just pull the cancer card:
At bottom is the removable card with the text “I have cancer,” and the text printed beneath it reads:
I HAVE CANCER
do what I want or leave me alone
A portion of this card’s proceeds is donated to the Wood Hudson Cancer Research Laboratory in Newport, Kentucky.
Both the 3.5” x 5” note card and the 2″ x 3.5″ “cancer card” are professionally printed in the USA on smooth white card stock. (Inside panel of note card can easily be written on with pen.) Back of card has the Blustery Day Design logo, along with information regarding the donation. Cancer card is on a thicker stock and has a smooth glossy finish as well as rounded corners.
(Note that a previous version of this card folded on the left side; the current version has the fold at the top.)
A blank envelope in color that matches text on card’s front (may be red-orange like in pictures here, or another matching bright color such as green, purple or orange) with embossed back flap is included with the card.
The card and envelope come packaged in a cellophane sleeve that is compostable, biodegradable and recyclable, made from plants and containing at least 60% post-industrial recycled material.
