Great Greeting Cards for All Ages and Occasions

As a young child, I always loved the holidays and couldn't wait to make place cards for our dining table. Even though it was just for my family, it still brought me great joy.

The years went by, life happened and the crafty me got lost in the abyss. After my Navy years, there was a time when my children were growing up, I did get into crafts for a short while, but mostly sewing and cloth products.

It wasn't until 2011, that my passion for doing crafts came back into my life. While I was on vacation in Maine, my best friend and I attended a scrapbooking class. It was a lot of fun. However, upon returning from vacation, I had to return to work. After about a month, I really started thinking about how much I really loved making cards and began by making some Halloween, Birthday and Thanksgiving cards for the family. At Christmas time, I was in full swing, making over 45 cards! I was really hooked then. I quit my job, bought some craft supplies and machines and just took off.
Mind you, all of this was accomplished at my kitchen table!

In February of 2012, I opened up my Etsy Shop, Bethies Cards. I really love making cards and am constantly trying new ideas and broadening my categories for cards. I currently have cards for kids birthdays, animal cards, birthdays and holidays. I really enjoy the cards for the kids. They are so much fun to make!

It's now 7 years since I first opened my shop.

I am a Gulf War Veteran and very proud of that. I served in the US Navy and was stationed over in Saudi Arabia in 1991 attached to a Fleet Hospital Unit during the first Gulf War.

So, with all of that said, thank you for visiting my shop. I hope you enjoy looking around and if you have any questions about anything, please feel free to ask.

Thank you for stopping in and please come again!

I want to make sure your cards make it to you in the best condition possible, so I ship my cards in a bubble envelope with a piece of cardboard to keep it from being bent, which means it goes USPS 1st class package rate.

I get the order together and into the mail the next business day. The cards are mailed from Alabama.
