Today I am going to share a great new card company and a contest. Cards Direct recently sent me a generous gift card to use myself and a $50 Gift Card to give a way here on my blog. I have not placed my order yet, but it is on my "to do" list for today. Cards Direct carries lovely photo cards (at a competitive rate), but they also carry a line of high end cards and invitations. All of their cards are beautiful. Today I am working on a baby shower invitation. The designs are all so breathtaking that it was hard to choose. The paper and envelope choices are vast and translate into haute couture cards and stationery.
The baby shower I am helping with is for a dear friend. Every baby is a miracle, but this baby has been long awaited and has been her mommy's greatest wish for many years. I can think of no greater use for fine stationery than an event like this one. Her nursery theme features a giraffe. When I thought about the giraffe theme, I never imagined that I would find cool invites that had anything to do with the nursery theme. Giraffes can be cool thanks to Cards Direct. Look at this beauty.
Check out the complete baby shower invite line here. My plan is to upgrade to one of their mega special paper stocks (felt I think) and tie it all together with mother of pearl lines velum envelopes.
Cards Direct offers personal use and business use cards as well. They offer value packs of general use cards as well as personalized event/holiday themed greetings. Their "Thank You" cards are immaculate and would truly help convey how touched you are by a gift or gesture that was bestowed upon you.
With the holiday season around the corner, Cards Direct is offering some of their most popular designs at discount prices based on purchase size. The Cards Direct site is very helpful and simple to navigate. I love the "custom option" box that pops up with each card. It allowed me to see all of the options available with each design and displayed detailed pricing information. There is no need to bounce in and out of a shopping cart to figure out the pricing details. That is a very helpful feature and I have not seen anything quite like it on any other card making web site. It is very customer friendly.
Cards Direct has a variety of Christmas and Holiday cards. They also offer custom Photo Cards for any and every occasion. Their line of Birth Announcements makes me want to rent some one's uterus- just so I can order some. Is it tacky to send out beautiful birth announcements for your Four year old with an apology to explain that the first set simply did not do your child justice? Which Birth Announcement would you choose?
I think this one is my personal favorite:
