Announcement   The Card Kiosk is your one-stop shop for unique, handmade greeting cards made with expert attention to detail. Save time with easy ordering and delivery right to your door.

As you browse, you'll find beautiful handcrafted cards for a number of life events such as love/wedding cards, seasonal and holiday cards, birthday cards for her, birthday cards for him, birthday cards for kids, congratulations cards, baby cards, graduation cards, sympathy cards and card sets. We also carry friendship and hello cards, thank you cards and teacher cards.

When it comes to making my creations, I love to use multiple layers, dimensional embellishments and texture. These are not flat, one-dimensional cards. Every card is unique and one-of-a-kind, not mass produced. On occasion I do create multiples of a design, but not often. I like to let the products I use, and my creativity, guide the outcome of each card rather than create cookie cutter versions of the same design.

Each greeting card comes with a complimentary envelope and is wrapped in a clear, resealable cellophane bag to protect it and keep it clean during shipping. The inside of most cards is blank, allowing you to write your own greeting or sentiment. If there is a sentiment inside, it is mentioned in the listing.

All of my paper creations are ready to ship within 1 business day and are ready to use as soon as they arrive at your door.

So come on in, take a look around, and enjoy. Thank you for choosing The Card Kiosk for your greeting card needs! Happy shopping!

About

Paper Crafting is My Passion!

Hi there! My name is Lisa and I have been addicted to paper crafting since 2001. Why did I get started in 2001, you ask? I received an empty 12" x 12" scrapbooking album (one of the "standard" sizes in this hobby) as a gift when my now teen daughter was born. After staring at it for six months, I decided it was time to figure out what all of the hoopla about scrapbooking was all about. It took only one class at a local scrapbooking store and I was hooked! Scrapbooking quickly led to card making and other types of paper projects. After a few years, opportunities in the paper crafting world started opening up to me and before I knew it, I was getting paid to do what I love. I was designing for magazines, product manufacturers and online crafting stores.

Let me tell you a little bit about my style. I love to mix bits and pieces to create embellishment clusters on my projects and it's a rare project that doesn't feature some kind of stitching, whether it be by hand or machine. Layering is also part of my "signature" style so you'll notice a lot of texture and dimension in my work. I don't create flat, one dimensional cards (but we're not talking super bulky either). I love to use dimensional embellishments. That's why I chose the tagline, "Taking cards to a new dimension", for my shop.

While scrapbooking and card making are my passion, I also enjoy making altered projects (holiday packaging, decorative clothespins, etc.) When I'm not creating new cards for my shop or chauffeuring my daughter around to school, piano lessons or dance class, I can be found puttering in my garden, reading a book for my two person book club, cooking up a new recipe or taking photos that will later be committed to paper for all time.

I am currently a design team member and the challenge coordinator for Paper Issues (paperissues.com), an online scrapbooking store and regularly have my projects featured in online magazines, eBooks and on craft-related blogs.

You can see my creations on my personal blog, Remember the Good Times: http://lisarukinswift.com, plus you can follow me on Instagram: @thecardkiosk and on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thecardkiosk/. I love to meet new friends and interact with other crafters, buyers and sellers!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my work. I'd love to hear from you. :)

Frequently asked questions

Processing and Shipping Time

All items are in stock and available for shipment. Shipping turnaround time averages one (1) business day.

Domestic orders weighing 16 ounces or less are shipped via United States Postal Service First Class Mail. Orders exceeding 16 ounces are shipped USPS Priority Mail. If you would like expedited shipping on any order (Priority Mail or Express Mail), please contact me BEFORE checking out and I will add a shipping upgrade listing to your order.

Once a package leaves the United States, unfortunately I am not able to provide tracking information or a scheduled delivery date.

Custom Orders

The majority of my items are one-of-a-kind. I may not have the materials on hand (or available) to make duplicates, therefore I do not accept custom orders.

Disclaimer

It is very common to experience color differences between computer monitors. Although I make every effort to present "true color" in the photos I take, colors, brightness, contrast and color tint can vary widely depending on individual monitor settings and adjustments. You may see an item differently (lighter/darker, more/less saturated, etc.) than I do on my monitor and the color may not appear as an exact representation. If you have any concerns about color, brightness, texture, etc. please don't hesitate to contact me before making your purchase.
