Default Challenge: create a greeting card for a new polyamorous relationship!

So B came out about us to her sister. Her sister was happy but mused "I suppose there isn't a Hallmark card for that, is there?"

Well that got me thinking...what would a greeting card for a new poly relationship look like? I'd love to put one together and give it to B, because that's the kind of thing we do. And I am a total sap...so I can do sappy and serious...but I'm looking for slightly silly too which I'm not as good as. I'll share what o eventually come up with. Any ideas?

I can think of cards announcing that you are poly... But a "congratulations on being poly!" card? I'm not sure how to go about that.

Mmh, maybe something about "Making one relationship work is hard enough..." then you turn the page and it says "...I don't know how you do it!" and there is a graph of an intimate network of some sort?

EDIT: if we're creating cards, we should create a whole line
Cards for Valentine's day, both cards intended to more than one person and cards intended to your metamour, or cards meant to be given to someone by more than one person at a time...
Then congratulation cards for plural weddings, announcement cards "our family's getting bigger!" announcing a new partner rather than a kid, and so on.

Looks like a lot of potential, even if they probably wouldn't get much use

"Every relationship fails ... until a few don't!"

"Happy birthday to my husband's girlfriend's wife!"

"To my girlfriend and her husband on their special day ..."

"Roses are red, violets are blue, I love him, and so do you!"

I agree about the last one, mainly because that's one I'd use.

What sort of art/photos would be on the cards? Just groups of people?

People holding hands (and feet where ness), in a cross-circle way that represents all the relationships that are going on. It should end up looking like a weird connected twister.

Songs that could be added to Polycards:

"I wanna hold your hand...hand...hand...hand...hand......."

Or

"I wanna hold your hands........" (The Beatles. polyfied!!)
