New Greeting Cards with Soul
This is a really exciting time of year in the world of cards and gifts; the new year brings the first deliveries of lovely new designs into the shops. Today’s post shows off some of those very designs that will be the fresh new highlights in stores and boutiques across the UK. These are four brand new ranges from boutique publisher Soul UK.
The first images are from ‘Soul Casa’ a modern, stylish collection of everyday cards, designed by Soul’s in-house designer, Vikki Aust. The bold illustrations use a bright palette that stands out against the patterned, dove grey background (the pattern even continues inside). Each printed card is made extra special with glossy varnish highlights that really makes the images shine.
‘Soul Château’ is a range with a French twist; the delicate designs are distressed to produce a soft, vintage feel. The collection is made up of 14 die-cut occasion cards designed by Lorna Siviter. The inside text shows through the die-cut shapes to offer a modern 3D effect and a foil finish behind the print provides an eye-catching addition to the style.
‘Soul Mika’ are sleek and stunning; bright colours, combined with florals, texture and pattern to provide a stylish contemporary look. The cards even have a touch of glamour with silver foil and flitter finishes. The 14 everyday designs even have a special surprise on the back of the cards … you’ll have to raid the shops to check out what it is!
The final new range from Soul is ‘Curly Girl’ twenty cards crafted into quirky images with humorous yet sentimental text … perfect girlie designs. Using layered collages of retro prints and textured papers the designs are a pretty range with a modern feel. Each card features hand printed and carefully cut text to spell out the endearing messages. The work of Curly Girl Design in the USA, Soul has brought the designs here to publish for the UK market.
All of the new cards retail between £1.99 – £2.25, for more information pop along to the Soul UK website.
