Looking for unique cards?
Tired of standing in front of the overpoweringly generic card display at the store?
So was I. About two years ago I discovered greeting cards on Etsy! Gorgeous cards! Funny cards! Sweet cards! Cards for any occasion! I was stunned by the variety.
And I'd much rather search for the perfect card from the comfort of my home with coffee tumbler in hand and give my money to a local artist.
A Paper Affaire is one of my favorite shops because Holly constantly adds new cards. Sometimes I visit her shop just to see what's new. She makes all of the cards herself with stamps and ribbons and other whimsical embellishments.
Plus, she clearly cares about delivering quality service. Every time I've ordered with her, she places the cards in a cellophane wrapper to minimize movement inside the sturdier cardboard photo envelope. Nothing has ever gotten bent with her thorough packaging!
