Gorgeous Greeting Cards with a Touch of Silver.
Like the proverbial magpie I’m a bit of a sucker for shiny things so I was inspired to look towards two of the latest ranges from Peel Cards for my first blog post. ‘A Cut Above’ and ‘Tea & Cake’ have become two best-selling ranges in the Peel repertoire and deserve a closer peek. A short time ago I popped in to the Peel design studio; the directors, Julia and Ed gave me some lovely samples to take away and show you here.
These first four images are from the ‘A Cut Above’ range. As you can see from the bird Birthday card above, the designs feature some gorgeous silver foil that has been specially etched. This works really well to give extra texture to the image, that’s sure to put a smile on any magpie’s face … If birds can smile that is. I also love the use of the bold coloured background on this design.
This gorgeous cake design (to celebrate a wedding) has a wonderful collage style, using different patterns for the cake layers and birds. The range has 17 cards, covering birthdays, blanks & occasions. Below is my favourite of all the designs. A graphic, floral print that is bang on trend for this season and as a blank card it can be used for any occasion.
Each of the cards feature a double fold, with cut out elements on the front to give a contemporary 3D effect. This range is perfect for those of you thinking the world has been looking a bit flat after all those 3D movies.
Below are samples from the beautiful ‘Tea & Cake’ range. This range also uses Peel’s signature ‘etched foil’ this time in delicate swirls to create some gorgeous branches for the birdies. This range has 25 designs for birthdays & occasions; including a recent addition of special age cards for the 18 -80 market. As with all of Peel’s card ranges, Tea & Cake uses a high quality board and on this occasion it is even textured to give an added luxury.
Bird themes are hugely popular at the moment, with some beautiful birdies popping up in homewares, fashion, & jewellery. It’s great to see this trend being utilised in the greetings card world too. Peel supply trade customers nationwide and export to many countries all over the world.
