CardNest – A review of some beautiful cards

I am terrible when it comes to preparing for birthdays and anniversaries. I actually do remember the occasion and then spend my time running around at the last minute panic buying things that can be delivered within 24 hours. I have also been known to Google places that will do the same day delivery. My hubby is even worse. Between the both of us, we have about 12 nieces and nephews in total so you’d think we’d be slightly more organised.

So when CardNest contacted me about sampling their cards and doing a review I was definitely willing.
I received two beautifully presented pack of 3 cards, attractively packaged with a nice varied selection. I got a variety of birthday cards, thinking of you cards and thank you cards as well as stamps!!! So all the stress is taken out of remembering to send a card. All cards are blank which allows you to scribble in your own personalised message. I like the mixture of classic simple graphics and quirky stylish images. I also liked that you get a little information on who has designed the cards each month. Its a lovely and especially nice that they support budding artists in this way.

      Ah thank you! It’s not great having to dash out and grab a card that’s only half decent – for once we’re big fans of hoarding and building up a bit of a stash!

      Thank you Sarah 🙂 The stamps do come in really handy!

    Oh I adore little card and postcards. Because we have pale walls, I use them all over the house to add a bit of colour. I probably should send one or two as well though.

      Haha my mum loves to frame cards and puts them up in the downstairs loo! It’s my mum’s own independent gallery apparently 😉

    I am really organised for birthdays, but I always forget a card! I have been known to stop of at a newsagent on the way to a party to get a card, then write on it in the car.

      Hehe if it makes you feel better, we know someone that’s bought a card in a train station and asked the customer service staff for a pen to write it!

      Thanks for the lovely comment! It’s been so much fun working with different artists because they come up with something so unique! 🙂

    These look so sweet, I think they would encourage you to send a little note to someone just because. I like that you get a little information about the artist too, a lovely idea 🙂

      Thanks Hayley! We love those ‘just because’ moments. Hopefully we can all start writing to each other again and not going on auto-pilot by grabbing our phones! 🙂

      Ah thank you Kim, very nice of you to say! What we love is that subscribers receive different cards each month and you don’t quite know what you’re going to get so it’s a nice surprise! 🙂

      Thanks Izzie! They come in really handy! It’d be really frustrating if we helped out with topping you up with cards but still had to dash out for stamps!
