Hello there lovely Buttoneers! This post is coming to you a little later than I wanted it to but hey ho! We are here, sat together with our cup of tea now so it is all okay in the end isn’t it!? It’s been a funny old start to the month really. Can you believe we are in the last week in January already!? Can we not just borrow a time turner and start over? I wasn’t ready!!
Does anyone else feel like this? I had so many plans and changes for you January, but you whisked my legs from under me and now I am sat on the floor wondering where the hell the month has gone.
Maybe I just have a huge dollop of the Januarys on my cereal each morning – Darn I thought that was yoghurt!
Don’t fear though. I am okay – I am just trying to find my footing a bit and as Eliston Button turned 2 a couple of weeks ago (Did you catch that Birthday discount code!?) I am figuring out what I want to get from this little bloggity blog and where I want to explore next. I am gathering up the creative goodness and laying it all out on the table. So bear with me, I will get there.
I will pop in here and there when I have adventures to share or crafty makes for you to indulge but, for a while take on a bit more of a casual blog posting schedule to lessen the pressure and make more time to make, create and explore all of the handmade possibilities. This will hopefully in turn loosen up the ol’ creativity mojo and imagination a bit more without the dementors shouting at me!
Quality over quantity, that’s what we’ll call it! Hurrah!
Anyhoo, I am popping in today to share and show of my new handmade babies – A new hand stamped card – just in time for Valentine’s Day! *cue the lights dimming, the romantic piano medley, and the flicker of candles…*
Now, I know some of you like a simple, minimalist design…a sleek, straight-to-the-point message and a bit punch of colour on a crisp white background – This my lovelies, is for you…
Love is on the cards! The lovely little creative fairies have filled these cards with handmade goodness just for you to send to your loved ones, your partner, your friends or even your family!
Each white card is individually hand stamped with a circular stamp with the message ‘I Love You’ around the inside circle. Three little hearts are in the centre of the circle and two larger hearts hug the outer edge to create a line of love across the middle.
A hand-carved arrow stamp with chevron detail is then stamped at an angle from the bottom left corner pointing towards the ‘I Love You’ stamp, drawing your eye up the arrow to the message in the top right corner in this simplistic, eye-catching design.
The images are hand stamped in a red premium pigment ink to ensure vibrancy and a consistent print each time. I always use acid free ink for peace of mind that your card will last and can be kept with confidence as a lasting memory.
Each folded white card is 6″x6″ square and is 250gsm and comes with a square white 100gsm envelope. Both are very good quality and have a matt finish to them.
The inside of the card is left blank for you to get creative and write your own message – Go on – get mushy!
Each card will be packaged in clear, sealed cellophane and posted to you wrapped in tissue in a boarded envelope to ensure it gets to you in the best condition. Each one also is subtly stamped and hand lettered with the Eliston Button logo on the reverse of the card at the bottom.
These cards also love to be framed so if you don’t have anyone you want to send them too or you just want to keep one for yourself, pop it in a frame and voilà! Beautiful hand stamped wall art! Hooray!
All of the love can be found in the Eliston Button Etsy Shop 🙂
PLEASE NOTE: The embroidered felt rose brooch in the photograph is not included, but can be purchased separately here in my Etsy Shop! Hooray!
So, what do you think? I am really chuffed with how they have turned out. Who would be your Valentine? Would you send them to a lover or a friend? Maybe you would just want to tell your family you love them? Do you do anything to celebrate Valentine’s Day? I would love to hear all about it!
