Greeting Cards for Every Occasion
To end the week we’ve got some fabulous cards from Velvet Olive. Launched by Kathryn Fletcher in 2004, the company produces greetings cards for the trade and public. Velvet Olive has an extensive selection of cards and were kind enough to send Card & Gift Blog a few samples to show you here.
Kathryn is enthusiastic about finding unusual boards and papers. This passion is evident in all of Velvet Olive’s greetings cards, which use refreshing, high end board choices, making their greetings cards extra special. The ‘Woody’ range (shown above) is a particular treat, using a matt brown foil on a striking wood effect board.
Hobbies and entertainment influence the next ranges. ‘The Classics’ are a fun range of birthday cards inspired by classic movies. Bright colours are combined with a leather effect board, which is then finished with foil. While ‘Pastimes’ is a collection of 10 birthday cards depicting manly pursuits with a vintage twist.
For the girls, Velvet Olive has created a series of elegant ranges. ‘Letters’ is a subtle design, embossed on a high quality, textured board. Each card is finished with a cream crystal pearl .
This beautiful bird house design is part of the ‘Rosealicious’ collection. Printed on a textured board, each card is highlighted with satin gold foil and then hand finished with organza ribbon roses.
With the wedding season approaching, the last design is an elegant Wedding Day card from the ‘Love Birds’ range. A classic typeface and foiled motif, printed on a pearlised board. For an extra special touch designs are finished with miniature diamantes and a satin bow.
Velvet Olive greetings cards retail between £1.95 to £3.50 and can be purchased from their online store. Trade customers will also find full contact details to stock these cards on the official Velvet Olive website.
