Papercut Stationery

Now these are the kind of cards you’d hang on to.

I am such an admirer of papercut work for the sheer amount of loving attention and time it takes to create. It’s the kind of thing I wish I spent my free time doing– cutting clever crafty cards to send to loved ones– but I’ve had to accept that I never will, and instead I’m glad to find artists like Ashley Pahl who make pretty things like this and sell them to ADD people like me!

PS – Bunting is already one of the best things ever, how freaking cute is it in miniature on a notecard??



yes to all

it’s all right in front of you.

I love these retro-inspired “just because” cards by Dani Press.  Dani takes all the photos herself and turns them into these sweet and original cards.

Check out more here– it’s fun to look around at the different ones because she gives a little background on each photo and where/why it was taken, which makes them feel even more special.


 This is awesome.  Just discovered a sister blog to Letters of Note (check it out if you don’t know it– it publishes scans of original historically significant letters) called Letterheady, which publishes the letterhead of famous figures and companies.  Could browse their archives for… a while.

Stationery + Snark >> “Mean Cards”

Mean Cards combines snark, humor, a little meanness, but still a little sentiment in their playful cards…

You must know you’re really good friends with someone if they give you a card like this… it at least means they know you well enough to know you won’t take it the wrong way.

Mean Cards here.  They also deliver iPhone cards, making it even easier to deliver some snark.
