A Birthday Card Fit for a Queen

This Week’s Picks

♥ Paula and Waffle’s new book and literary inspired cards (making their debut at NSS this year) are awesome!

♥ If you’re a fan of paper quilling, then you must check this out. Incredible.

♥ And if you’re a fan of vintage ephemera, head right on over and have a look at this.

♥ I LOVE that interactive and dimensional cards are becoming more popular, and these “make a wish” birthday cards by Design Is Yay for A Subtle Revelry (free downloads included) are so cute!

Sweet packaging for a sweet kitchen staple.

♥ Omigosh, these wooden spools! And the trim is pretty darn cute, too.

There is something so evocative and sophisticated about scented stationery, and these beautiful botanical scented cards from Clap Clap Design are the perfect blend of botanical illustration, scented sachet, and lightly perfumed love letter.

Each card includes a specially created fragrance chip that can be tucked into a purse, a notebook, or luggage to create a scent experience that will accompany you throughout the day. Scents include grapefruit, pine, rose,sandalwood, hinoki, fig, geranium, and bamboo, all of which sound absolutely wonderful.
