Simple, Special Note Cards

I've always loved paper. Cards, small notebooks and journals, writing pads. And I especially love paper that is special, delicate, and sweet. The other day I was about to write a card and really did not want to use the very normal pack of cards I had in my desk drawer. They were relatively cute and blank inside (I never buy cards with sayings in them--I like to write my own!) but so basic.

So I went online to the Paper Source, the amazing store where I purchased all of the paper and supplies for our wedding invitations, which I made almost entirely myself (I will be blogging about this very soon). I went to the sale section and found these lovely blush-colored card stock cards. They are really simple and delicate and perfect for writing a note to a friend or relative. And, I know it's not too polite to talk about prices, but a 25-pack of these cards only cost me $2.38

Once I found these I began looking for some envelopes to go with them. These "paper bag" envelopes were not in the sale section, but I splurged and got them anyway (the Paper Source prices are actually quite reasonable, even the non-sale items). I love the rustic look and feel of these. They really are like brown paper bags, or old-fashioned brown wrapping paper. 

These cards and envelopes are simple and special--just my style! 

p.s. I will send one blush card and one paper bag envelope (blank, for you to use!) to one lucky commenter. Just leave a comment and I will draw a random winner by the end of the week!


  1. I love note cards, I think they are a great way to say thank you. I still send hand written notes from time to time, but perhaps I'm slightly old school.
