I keep a stash of cards that I pick up when I see something that appeals to me. Then when I need to send a quick invitation, a small reminder, or a thank you i just go to my stash and pick out one I am willing to part with. Even if you aren't traveling most card shops have a post card area. Some are real works of art.
To mark an occasion, or just in appreciation for a small favor done, I often put some of my cards into a set and I have an instant gift. They frame well to make a special gift. I always appreciate something handmade. Means more when someone took time to make something for me. I don't have a problem with technology and often save time with my cell phone and IPad, but every now and then, I revert to a kinder, softer time and mail out one of my postcards.
I took the macro shots of some of my favorite roses, grown by me, and put them into postcard format. The cards are standard 6" x 4". The front of the card is high gloss 11 mil card stock. The backside is matte so your message can be clearly written. It has a lined area for the address, stamp and a message area. There are 5 floral postcards in this set.
Start your collection of postcards today or stock pile for the quick gift that is needed and there is little time available to shop. You never know when a little message from you to someone special can make their day.
