These handmade cards from Good Paper aren’t just punny and cute – which, by the way, they totally are. They’re also for a great cause. Good Paper believes that cards can change lives, and they employ women who have escaped human trafficking, giving them a safe work environment and a secure source of income.

Good Paper Handmade Holiday Cards (detail)

I love the texture and dimension of these wonderful cards, which feature layered pieces of paper that are glued down on the card to create each festive design. All of Good Paper’s cards are hand-cut and hand-assembled by their cardmakers, so when you actually hold the card in your hand, you can see the different paper pieces and the dimension that they create. In other words, these are not your typical flat-printed cards.

The paper used for the card front is also handmade (pulped and pressed) by Good Paper’s cardmakers. In the close-up of the Peas on Earth card above, you can see the texture and fibers of the paper. And the best part is the back of each card is signed by its maker, connecting you to each unique woman who crafted it.

Good Paper’s handmade, boxed holiday cards are available at Whole Foods stores nationwide, so be sure to stop by and check them out!
