"Ever mind the rule of three -
Three times what thou givest returns to thee,
this lesson well, thou must learn -
Thee only gets what thou dost earn."
It's a common theme, no matter the culture or religion you follow. Whether it's "treat others as you wish to be treated" or lessons of charity and kindness.
When I saw these cards, I immediately fell in love with them. The rule of three is a tenant that I was taught at a very young age and one that has influenced my life through the years from childhood onward.
As my years as a mentor, this was an important lesson I worked with parents to teach to their children as well and it has been one of the most rewarding lessons I've shared with those I've been fortunate to have helped along their own individual paths.
The shop where I found these wonderful cards is CraftyPagan Designs on Etsy. It's a shop filled with wonderful handmade tags, cards and other hand-stamped artwork and designs by Rowena. Some are themed to the pagan path such as the cards pictured above in this post, but that's by far not the only theme offered.
Rowena's CraftyPagan Designs is filled with different themes from Alice in Wonderland to The Wizard of Oz and more. They offer gift tags and cards as well as stationary, wedding and anniversary announcements, luxury greeting cards, holiday themes and even some canvases and altered art!
I love the aged paper look that many of their items have to them as well. It's unique and different as well as positively eye-catching.
