Front: Before I ever carried the pain, I carried you. And in my heart, I carry you still – Rachel Whalen

About our Greeting Cards:
All greeting cards on Adrian’s Elephant were created using templates and elements found in Canva.com and are completely free to download and print for personal purposes. Read more about Canva’s use policies here.
Cards are sized to print on standard 8.5″ x 11″ paper, and are also compatible with greeting card templates such as those produced by Avery or many other vendors of office supplies. If your template is smaller than 8.5″ x 11″, you will need to scale the design to fit. You can also print via many online services or through a local print shop.
Customize this card:
All cards are also customizable via Canva. Some cards may require a Canva subscription for premium elements; click on the individual template for details. (If you don’t have a subscription and only want a single design, please contact me. I will create it for you.)
Support the creation of these & future projects:
Adrian’s Elephant and Sea Glass Parenting will never charge for customizable digital products downloaded directly from this site. (We do charge a nominal fee for downloads from our Etsy shop). If you are moved to support our efforts, we accept tips via Ko-Fi.
