The crispness of the design speaks for itself (see photo). The card and envelope arrived in great condition and was very well packaged, but above all it was a pleasure doing business with “Looks Inviting”, as Sharron communicated regularly during the ordering and delivery process, so I knew exactly when it was going to arrive and had confidence in the entire process...plus my wife loved it!

About

Handmade Cards and Book Folding - What a weird combination!

Having made wedding invitations for many years, which is where the shop name "Looks Inviting" came from, I have now turned my creativity to everyday greeting cards. 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 made using eco-friendly 100% recycled quality cardstock.

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!

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

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. The items will be beautifully wrapped in premium wrapping paper and hand tied with ribbon. You have the option of including a message which will be sent with the gift.

Orders can then 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.
