For one year of my professional career, greeting cards were my life. Working at CardsDirect.com, every time I got a card I quickly flipped it over to see the manufacturer hoping that someone had thought to buy from CardsDirect. This holiday season, we got a lot of cards, but for a change we just enjoyed them for the message they brought and the memories shared. The friends, families and colleagues we have in our lives are amazing – we are truly blessed. From all the cards received, I have picked out two – both hand made – that I wanted to share with all.
The first is from our dear friend, amazing designer, and inspirational personality – Liz Wain. For those who do not know Liz, I had the pleasure of working with her about 4 years ago where we cultivated an enduring friendship. Liz Wain Designs (mostly top of bed, linens, and some furniture) gathered quite a following in the late 90’s – early 00’s and could be found at Neiman Marcus, Barney’s and more. We have some Liz Wain originals in bedding for our kids. Now, we have a Liz Wain original greeting card – a business she needs to get into!! Made out of recycled, corrugated cardboard and adorned with a hand cut piece of denim symbolizing peace, it is simple and sophisticated – and now treasured.
