15 Beautiful Cards for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day Cards

At Flamingo Paperie we have a very flexible range of greetings cards. So whilst we may not have a range with lots of cards labelled with Mother’s Day or Mothering Sunday we do have a lot of beautiful alternatives!

All our Flamingo Paperie cards are blank inside so you can write your own message rather than having a verse which may not be appropriate. In this first selection we have two that say ‘With Love’, one ‘Sending Love to Brighten your Day’ and two floral options. There is also space on the jar of the second floral card to write a name to personalise it, or you can write ‘Mum’!

Excellent Value

A fabulous selection to start with and these are all Flamingo Paperie cards from our January brochure. All our cards are £2.40 each or £1.90 each when you buy 10 or more assorted cards.

How about our gorgeous range of floral cards? Here are two examples. Or our scenic cards, including this gorgeous beach scene. We also have more ‘With Love’ cards plus the beautiful blue heart with gold foiled birds.

We have a number of camper vans in the range this year, including the gorgeous one shown which is embossed and says ‘Special Delivery’ which would accompany a gift of flowers perfectly! There are some for all the gin lovers ‘Let the Good Time Be Gin’ and the pink gin and prosecco card. If you are looking for something different then how about the budgies or dogs?!

There we go, 15 beautiful cards for Mother’s Day by Flamingo Paperie without me even thinking too hard! Why not explore the large selection of floral and scenic cards too!

12 Valentine’s Day Cards 2022

If you are looking for a different sort of Valentine’s Day card this year then look no further than the lovely range of cards by Flamingo Paperie. There are no cheesy rhymes in these cards! They are all blank inside for you to write your own more personal message.

All of Flamingo Paperie’s cards are designed and printed in the UK, supporting the UK printing industry. They are printed on chlorine free board using vegetable based inks, with paper from responsible sources regulated by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). If there is glitter on the card it is environmentally friendly (bio flitter), made from a vegetable derivative and biodegradable in marine and waste water.

There is lots to love about this beautiful range of cards! The great thing here too is that many are not just for Valentine’s, they are really flexible. You could use some of them for Mother’s Day for example, or for a birthday or to send some love to a friend to let them know you are thinking about them.

If you prefer to contact me to see which ones I have in my stock, contact me. I can send the cards out quite quickly if they are in my stock!

So which one are you going to choose? Next up in my blog I will have some Mother’s Day suggestions! See you then!

I Got it Wrong!

2020 really showed me a lot about my greetings card business with Flamingo Paperie. Looking back on 2020 it also showed me not to make any assumptions! I have been running teresa4cards for 10 years. During this time I was very focused on getting to events, markets and fairs and getting out and about with my cards. I had combined this with online selling too but the events were my main focus.

Here are some of the myths I had ‘made-up’ about my business over the years which were destroyed in 2020!

  1. Sales are rubbish in January, people don’t spend much. Wrong! I had some fantastic orders from my mailing list last January and did great sales at an event I did too.
  2. It’s not worth doing events before Easter. Wrong! I had an amazing set of events in February which generated more sales than most of the months the year before. Contacts from those events continued to buy cards all the way through 2020 and they shared my brochures with their friends too!
  3. No events = No Sales. Wrong! When lockdown came in March this was my assumption. Happily it was very wrong! My mailing list were very keen to buy and people were contacting me from events the previous year, where they had picked up and kept my details. Orders were continuing to come in, even though I was doing very little promotion as I had no words. When first lockdown started I was frozen in my business for about two months!
  4. Online Selling Won’t Keep Me Busy Enough. Wrong! The continuous trickle of orders coming in encouraged me to start to promote my cards consistently again. I had the busiest Christmas season in my business that I have ever had! This time without leaving my home and standing all day at Christmas events!
  5. I can’t sponsor people into my business, I am no good at it and I won’t know how to help them. Wrong! I sponsored my first new person into my team for two years in August and then it snowballed! I added 6 more by the end of the year and I LOVE helping them!!

2020 ended up being my busiest year ever in my business and I am very grateful for everyone that supported me. I am going to try to not make assumptions from now on! This year I will get back to events when they are running again, because I love doing them but I am going to be more selective.

The packs of 8 Christmas cards are priced at £3, £4 or £4.50 depending on the size of the cards.

My favourites again this year are the advent calendar cards. Both the sheep one and the reindeer one have been very popular with my customers. All of the advent calendar cards are only £3 each and they post as a normal letter, so they are a great special card to send to friends and family further afield. Just remember to send them early so they can be enjoyed for the whole of December!

I am having my busiest Christmas season ever, even with all my events being cancelled for this year. Whether November will beat November last year though, will be interesting to see!
