I am a card person and love to send snail mail! I needed a couple of cards recently and just couldn't find what I wanted at any retail store. So I turned to Etsy and came across two great stores that I wanted to share with you.
The first set of cards were for Valentine's Day. These were from the Etsy store Papered With Love. Stephanie makes beautiful cards! She also has a blog where she features her cards as well. Here are the two cards I ordered (the top one is "thank you" from Stephanie):
The second store I visited was RBowen. Rene has some beautiful cards already up for Easter. I bought three cards from her, but she sent me a fourth one free! I love them all and can't wait to send them out over the next couple of months. Here are the three cards I bought plus the extra one:
For the first time this year our school is hosting a "100 Days to Graduation" celebration luncheon for our senior class (yes, there are only 22)! I wanted to send them an invitation rather than spreading it by word of mouth. I knew that I wanted something that had their cap and gown photo on it, so I turned to Etsy to find a digital invitation design. I loved the simplicity of the items I saw in Natty Sue Designs shop. I ordered the design, made payment and sent an e-mail with the specifics for the invitation to Natalie. In less than 24 hours, I had the proof back and she even sent two lay-outs for me to choose from. I sent the high resolution file to our local printer and had the completed invitations back in less than 24 hours. Amazing... Thank you Natalie! She has everything from bridal shower invitations to Christmas cards. Here is the invitation we sent to our seniors for the luncheon:
