FOR THE LOVE OF PAPER
My love affair with paper began very young. It started with school supplies and then slowly grew into planners and then to invitations and thank you cards. Since I can remember, I could get lost picking out journals and scouring the aisles for the most beautiful greeting cards. In fact, I think one of my favorite parts of wedding planning was designing and assembling the invitation. [I wrapped an olive tree leaf around each invite with thin gold thread…it was quite the process and I had to enlist the help of my husband and maid of honor to get it done! But I digress…😌]
THANK YOU CARDS
My daughter’s baby naming is coming up and I was just starting to search for thank you cards when Basic Invite reached out about their baby shower card line. [You can see their beautiful custom, unique and modern baby shower cards.] I decided to check them out and found these beautiful “Thank You” cards. I liked them because of their subtle elegance and the fact that I could customize the colors [there are over 180 and you can change each element on the card]. I ended up going with these and selected a soft peach hue for the roses and plum for the berries. I’ve been on such a peach kick lately 😌…maybe because I’m ready for Spring. Who knows?! The website allows you to preview the card immediately, which is very helpful. You can also order a sample of cards before committing to a large order, which I love. [As a “late majority” buyer, as they say in marketing, I need to make sure I love a product before committing!]
BASIC INVITE FEATURES
Another feature that stood out to me about Basic Invite is that their envelopes are all “Peel and Seal.” Normally I’m drowning in an assembly line of envelopes as I use a sponge moistener to seal them up. These cards caught me by surprise when I went to close them! I averted the messy sealing process and the headache of wondering if I used too much water or if it leaked onto the card. If you’re a card lover like me, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about! [#FirstWorldProblems, but still…] I added a washi tape to the back of the envelope to give it some more color! My tape was old but you can get tons of different ones on Amazon, like this one here.
I’m so excited to use these for my daughter’s Baby Naming celebration! The cards came out beautifully. Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code 15FF51 [and today’s the last day to use it!]. Next time I think I’m going to try out the foil lettering…oh the things that get me excited!
Are y’all paper lovers too?? Let me know and we can nerd out together – ha!
