DIY: Framing Greetings Cards.

Anyone else obsessed with buying pretty cards and framing them? Nope, just me then.. I drive the hubby mad with picking up blank cards to add to my picture wall in my dressing room. These pretty little numbers are from Mango Salute* an online card ordering service, with a little twist. All of the cards are 'arty' which makes them just that little more special. I know that greetings cards aren't designed to be framed, but these were just too pretty to hide away until I needed them. 

I picked a selection of designs from different artists, all with unique styles. I love anything with dachshunds on, hence the princess pooch card. I'm also a big fan of initials being used in designs and I just thought this cute floral K design was too lovely to pass up. 

There a huge range of different designs on the website, it's certainly worth a look if you're looking for something a little different to Moon Pig - plus you get 30% your first order if you sign up to the newsletter.

I think it's fair to say I will be continuing to by cards to frame - they're just too pretty.

P.S. Just in case anyone was wondering all the frames are from Wilkinsons for £2-3 each

  5. Love the look of these. I'd definitely purchase some if I had a beauty room come office but with 2 kids I have no space for anymore pictures. Frames are really nice, Wilkinson's have great frames x

  7. This is such a good idea and I love the cards you've chosen for this post :) I had Paperchase postcards all over my wall at uni as they were cheap and brightened things up but never thought to frame them! xx
