I just came across this free downloadable Halloween card from Inside a Black Apple, and it got me thinking. Many of us send Christmas cards sharing family photos, and in grade school we all exchanged Valentine's cards. And, of course, birthday cards are a given. But sending cards for other holidays is really uncommon. This particular card is so adorable though, I wonder, why not send cards to your family and friends on every holiday? A greeting card certainly won't break the bank, although I'm unhappy with the rise in stamp costs these days. And, your message needn't be long; it's the thought that counts. Tell me: do you send holiday cards outside of Christmas and Valentine's Day? Do you receive them? I bet one of you has a thoughtful old auntie who sends them.
How cool is this: a greeting card that not only does the normal job of carrying a message, but also pops up and doubles as an origami ornament! The Winter Card, $9.90, was inspired by the Chinese "Magic Flower" paper toy, and comes in lots of different bright colors and patterns. It's perfect for a unique way to tell your best friend happy birthday, your mom thank you, or just to write a quick note to a coworker!
We know it's hard to do more than email these days but we appreciate the hand written letter. We also love cards. We believe in sending birthday, anniversary, holiday, get well - you name it - we send it. However sometimes it's nice to find a unique card that is guaranteed to make someone laugh. The kind of card they remember for years. Here are a few of our favorites but check out Bald Guy Greetings to see more.
