Handwritten cards are taking on the runway, literally! I’m excited to announce a fashionistas’ dream — Designer Leyla Rose has partnered with Papyrus (my obsession — Does anyone else spend hours in this store?) for the ultimate collaboration. We’re talkin’ cards with a fashionable flair, and snail-mail twist!
Leyla Rose x Papyrus is channeling my inner-fashion-gal and I can’t wait to share the love with close friends/family. From ball-gown dresses, to vibrant colors, chic gift-wrap (see above) and decorative designs; it’s a guaranteed ‘bravo’ and I’m so excited to be part of something so wonderful and fab!
It’s no secret that everyone loves receiving cards in the mail — it’s the most genuine, organic way to send a love-note. In a digital age where cards are indeed becoming obsolete, it’s important to keep the significance alive than ever before! (Step away from the Gmail).
5 REASONS TO SEND CARDS AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE
- It’s like sending love and hugs: You know that feeling when you receive an unexpected letter in the mail? It’s the best feeling ever! A virtual ‘hug’ and ‘kiss’ that takes you somewhere warm.
- Letters are keepsakes: If you’re anything like me, you keep the letters/cards that you receive. I always like taking a trip down memory lane when I read them (sometimes, years later).
- You can get creative: Just like the Leyla Rose x Papyrus collaboration — There are many opportunities to go crazy, and have a little fun. Treat your envelope/card as a blank canvas, and add some unique flair. Watercolor paint on an envelope is a fun DIY hack! It also adds a lot of color for another ‘wow’ factor upon receiving!
- You’ll probably get a letter back: Perhaps this will spark an exchange?! Does anyone remember pen pals? Those were the good old days! Bring those back with some of your friends!
- You’ll stand out: When everyone else is writing a simple ‘Happy Birthday’ on a Facebook wall, you’ll stand-out with a physical note! It not only makes them feel really special, and loved — it’s a fun way to celebrate your special day.
