Last year when we first started shopping for a holiday card, it was a little overwhelming with all the choices. At the same time, it was really enjoyable because there were so many beautiful cards to look at. The Elegant Holiday Surprise card was the one that stood out for me, but I was unsure I wanted to send a black card. After thinking about it for a few days, a memory came to me of seeing my grandmother’s album from the early 1900’s, containing black holiday cards handwritten in silver. I realized that styles do return! This helped me to be brave and go for it! We ordered the Christmas card which included our personalization imprinted inside the card and I also used a gold gel pen to write personal messages.
When our recipients received the Christmas cards, the response was amazing! One person said, “Wow, it’s the most stunning card I’ve ever seen!” Another said, “Wow, gorgeous card! Where did you get it?” Several times during the year, people commented how thoughtful our card was! We obviously made a lasting impression!
For me, the most unexpected wow factor is that the cards and envelopes are thoughtfully made from recycled materials! This year we are excited to shop for holiday cards! We anticipate that they will once again be enjoyed, remembered, and saved!
