It's In The Cards...

Ever since I can remember, I've always been particular about greeting cards. For example, when I was little, my mom would buy a box of Valentine cards for me to give everyone in class. I would spread all of them on the table and literally decide who was going to get what card. She would laugh, because she didn't think it was THAT serious and it would take me hours to decide who was getting what. Well, I'm pretty much the same today.

To make a long story short, I came across these greeting cards on Etsy during my blogging time off and wanted to share them with you. I thought they were so beautiful! The lady that makes them is Sylvana Borrelli from Australia. She makes cards for weddings, baby showers, and even some cool vintage pieces featuring Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn. She will even personalize your card. How cool is that? There's so much talent in this world.This is NOT a sponsored or paid post, I just admired her work and decided to blog about it.

Cards have really come a long way. How do you buy greeting cards? By the box? Individually? When events come up? What's your style? I try to pick something unique for the person or event.

Have a Great Weekend Everybody! I need to find a hobby! Oh yeah, I blog! Let me rephrase that! I need to find a hobby that PAYS! LOL

  16. Lovely cards! I always a personal touch and vintage touch to my cards, so I either made them or find something more vintage looking. However it think it's sad more people are turning to e-cards. Cause these cards u share are such gems!

  36. Congrats to the winner!

    I have a box of really cute fashion-y cards that are my go-to cards because they are blank so they are great for any occasion. But I do like to go out and buy funny cards at the store as well.

    I really like how these are textured...never seen anything like them before.

  50. Lovely times ten!!! I almost died laughing because I'm a card lover too, I just hate the steep prices. Have you ever bought the box from Costco? Not as couture as the gems you posted but pretty nice. I was on a hiatus myself ... Missed you girl! :)

  51. Hi Kim,

    I love these wedding cards! They reminded me of my cards which I used to make in scrapbooking classes. Geez, ever since I started blogging, I haven't touch any of my scrapbooking stuff.
