About LooksInviting

Sales 8,233
On Etsy since 2015

Welcome to my happy place 🙂

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 quality materials.

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 local 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!).

I have 2 Etsy shops

1. LooksInviting (https://www.etsy.com/shop/looksinviting) for greeting cards, stationery and wish bracelets (digital book folding patterns are currently being transferred to shop #2)

2. LooksInvitingDigital (https://www.etsy.com/shop/looksinvitingdigital) for book folding patterns

Thank you for your interest. I hope you'll enjoy visiting each of my shops.

Frequently asked questions

When will I receive my order?

I aim to despatch all handmade items within 1-2 working day.

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

Orders are are posted via Royal Mail. Upgrade options are available at the checkout. Delivery times cannot be guaranteed but under normal circumstances should be approximately:
1-3 working days for UK
3-14 working days for Europe
5-14 working days for USA, Canada
7-18 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 this 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 recycled 300 gsm cardstock across the entire range of cards and wish bracelets.

Eco Friendly Packaging

Items are shipped from the UK using Royal Mail.

Most of the packaging items used (envelopes, bags and boxes) are made from recycled materials. As supplies of plastic packaging run out, these are all being replaced with an eco-friendly equivalent as part of my commitment to reduce the use of plastic.

Does Sharron really hand make each item?

Yes she does!

Every turn of the embossing handle, hand tied bracelet, snip of the scissors, and handmade die cut is completed by me.
