Cancer Encouragement Cards





Cancer Encouragement Cards

Have you struggled to find right card for a loved one or friend who has Cancer?

Traditional "Get Well cards" don't seem to send the right message especially if they're about to start months of treatment.

What's needed is a card that offers hope and encouragement to sustain them through the dark days.


A card to let them know that you're there for them with a positive message.

It's a long journey from Cancer diagnosis, to treatment, to surgery and being in remission.

Your simple act of sending a card(s) creates a reminder that they're valued and not alone on this difficult journey.

The majority of the cancer encouragement cards are based around the Awareness Ribbon - an international symbol that is used to increase awareness of different medical conditions and disabilities.

Different colours and patterns represent different causes.

Most people recognise that a pink ribbon represents Breast Cancer...but did you know that each of the different Cancers have their own individual colour?

With Faith All Things are Possible

Cancer encouragement card for all cancers

The first card is a clean and simple card to represent all cancers.  It was created with the "Ribbon of Courage" stamp set from Stampin Up!  

An oval was die cut from the purple card layer and glued onto the card base.

Stamp the ribbon and sentiment onto the white centre of the oval.

Die cut the flower and leaves from silver card.  Attach this to the front of the card with a glass embellishment to complete the card.


Sending Love and Hugs to You

Cancer encouragement card for prostate cancer

This Cancer encouragement card uses a craft coloured card base. The top layer is cut from a sheet of patterned wood grain paper.

Cut co-ordinating light blue patterned paper into strips and glue to the patterned paper

Stamp sentiment.

Add an awareness ribbon die cut in matching blue card.  Mount onto front of card with foam pads.

Add a small punched heart as the final embellishment.


Sending Hope

A pretty cancer encouragement card created with patterned paper and a Hope die from Altenew using the Inlaid die cutting technique.


This pretty card was created with beautiful patterned paper and a large Hope die both from Altenew.

The die cut "Hope" from the patterned paper was replaced with a "Hope" cut from white card using the Inlaid die cutting technique.

The intricate frame was die cut from Doily Lace die from Mama Elephant.

To add a bit more interest I added a small rectangle frame inside the the intricate frame.


Keep Going

A Cancer encouragement card created with the ink smooshing technique.

The final card uses my favourite technique - Ink Smooshing!

The awareness ribbon was stamped randomly onto Bristol paper with Versamark embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Using tumbled glass, salty ocean and shaded lilac distress oxide inks I ink smooshed the embossed card.

A "Keep Going" stamp from Altenew was stamped onto a strip of vellum and added across the die cut ink smooshed image.

It was then mounted onto a scalloped frame and a card base.

The final touch was the addition of a die cut heart next to the sentiment.
