I’m going on a rant for a few minutes… because, this is something I’m passionate about. Here goes:
I despise buying cards. Birthday cards, Baby shower cards… Pretty much any kind of card. It’s not that think cards are pointless and a waste of money. Actually, it’s the opposite: I really like to find the PERFECT card. And… cards are almost always WRONG.
Seriously; how many times have you gone to the drug store, & spent an hour trying to find the perfect birthday card? The pictures don’t match your Mom’s style, you can’t find one that says “Mee-Maw” on it, and the POEMS. Oh my WORD, don’t get me started on the overly sentimental, sappy poems. I wouldn’t say something like that in person, so why would I ever ask a friend to slog her way through reading it?
Ok. End rant. 😆
Here’s what I DO like when it comes to sending cards:
- I like simplicity. Nothing overly fancy or fluffy. I really love having a simple quote or wording that just of says it all. Simple, but meaningful enough to tug at the heartstrings.
- I also want plenty of room to write my own note. Okay, it’s usually more like a letter… and I always run out of room. If I’m going to send a card, I want it to be something special between me & the person on the receiving end.
- I like pretty cards! Gorgeous papers, and smooth velvety envelopes (in some other color besides white or pink!) Why can’t cards be simple, AND pretty?
I got frustrated by the lack of cards, & I think I’ve designed the perfect card set.
Introducing: the Minimalist Cards.
It’s a simple 5×7 greeting card. No fold, but a flat piece of textured, thick paper. Each card has a phrase on the front, which can often be used for multiple occasions. The minimalist design leaves PLENTY of room for writing that note (err… I mean book) on the back. The cards comes with matching deep gray envelopes.
The best part: You can purchase the cards individually, or mix and match to create your own perfect set! I have pricing for up to 20 cards… If you’re looking for a large bulk amount, Please Contact Me Here!
*drum roll please*
I also have added minimalist Christmas cards to the shop, too! These cards have simple, traditional Christmas phrases, & there’s plenty of room on the 5×7 card to tape your favorite family photo on the back.
