About LooksInviting

Sales 3,406
On Etsy since 2015

Welcome to Looks Inviting.

Having made wedding invitations for many years, which is where the shop name "Looks Inviting" came from, I have now turned my creativity to other stationery items. I design a range of fun and stylish cards which are all handmade to order. These provide a unique way of sending someone a special message or the boxed sets of embossed note cards make a thoughtful and practical gift. The cards are all made using eco-friendly 100% recycled quality cardstock.

Sometimes you want to send something a little more special that just card, and that is where the idea for my wish bracelets came from. These charming handmade bracelets, which come in a wide range of styles and occasions, make an affordable and thoughtful gift. The idea behind a wish bracelet is that you make a wish and put the bracelet on your wrist, and eventually when the cord wears out and breaks, your wish is released and will come true - so they say!

I have also discovered book folding and I was instantly hooked. I started producing my own designs and selling the finished books in a local craft outlet in my home town of Market Deeping on the Cambridgeshire/Lincolnshire border in the UK. Initially the patterns were created by hand, but then my husband helped me out by developing some software which does most of the work and produces very clear and professional patterns. So now I can move into the world of digital downloads and sell my unique designs to others for them to enjoy. This means that I get to make one of each design so that you can see exactly what the finished design will look like, which is a perfect excuse for spending my evenings folding books (a perfect activity for Winter in front of a log fire!). These finished books are also listed for sale, but don't miss out, there is only one of each design!

Frequently asked questions
When will I receive my order?

I aim to despatch all greeting card and note card orders within 1 working day.

Finished book art is despatched the next working day.

Tracking numbers are only supplied if the customer has purchased the "Tracked and Signed" option during checkout. Standard mailing options from the UK do NOT have a tracking number.

Orders are are posted via Royal Mail using 1st class post. Delivery times cannot be guaranteed but should be approximately:
1-2 working days for UK
3-5 working days for Europe
5-8 working days for USA, Canada
7-10 working days for Australia, New Zealand

Note: From experience I have found that orders to the USA sometimes take longer than these estimates, so please consider that when ordering. Thank you

Do you ship worldwide?

Yes, of course. Most items are available to ship worldwide. Shipping costs are automatically calculated as you add items to your basket.

Do you use recycled card?

Yes. I use a premium white recycled cardstock (270 gsm / 110 lb / 380 mic)

Packaging

All cards are packaged in a sealed cellophane bag for protection.

Items are shipped from the UK using Royal Mail first class post, in a board backed envelope, bubble mailer or cardboard box, depending on the quantity ordered.

Gft Wrapping

Packs of note cards make lovely presents and so I offer a full gift wrapping service which you can select when ordering. Orders will be beautifully wrapped in a simple block colour wrapping paper and supplied with an embossed gift tag for you to write.

Orders can be delivered directly to your recipient. This is a great way for shoppers outside the UK to have presents delivered to family and friends in the UK without the extra cost of overseas shipping and custom taxes.

Does Sharron really hand make each item?

Yes she does!

Every turn of the embossing handle, snip of the scissors, and handmade die cut is completed by Sharron herself.

Marked as a Gift & Gift Messages

"Marked As Gift" Definition:
"Marked as gift" means the packing slip will print without price info, like a gift receipt. You may request this if you are having me ship directly to the gift recipient OR if you wish to enclose this when you gift the item yourself.

Gift Message Option:
You may add a message for your gift recipients that will be printed on a small gift card IF you check the "marked as gift" box.
