Banana Folded Card
Turned My Phone Off For You Folded Card
On the inside of the Banana card: “We’re two of a kind.” I like this card – it has a bit of an Andy Warhol vibe!
The inside of the phone card says, “Turned my phone off for you.” This is one of those cards that I think is really cute, but I can’t think of a situation where I would use it. Maybe that’s how I’ll start deciding which cards to frame instead of mail!
Moon Phases Flat Card
Happy Birthday Flat Card
On the back of the Moon card it says, “I’m over the moon for you.” I’m starting to think the designers at A Beautiful Mess want me giving my husband more cards!
The birthday card is blank, and I love how fun the photo is.
Ring Flat Card
This card says “Congratulations!” on the back, and the diamond is made with silver foil, and the envelope is a fancy silver metallic! My only critique with flat wedding cards is that I would want to use this and include a check/money, and that’s easier to do with a folded card.
You Are The Best and The Mostest To Me Flat Card
Succulents Folded Card
This eye-test card is fun! I like the pop of pink in the card and the envelope too.
The inside of the succulent card reads, “you are one of a kind.” And it’s another fun envelope card!
Thank You Flat Card
Paint Card Postcard
FYI – this Thank You card doesn’t come with an envelope. In the unboxing video, they mention using a hole punch and attaching it to a bottle of wine as an idea!
I believe A Beautiful Mess includes a postcard in every shipment, and I think this paint sample card is so cute. On the flipside it says, “Just Wanted To Say”
Another List Notepad
Word Sticker Sheet
I love when they include notepads and sticker sheets – this is a good month for me! And how can you go wrong when one of the sticker phrases is, “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop” ?
Stand Out Print
Each month they include a larger print meant to be framed or displayed. (I have a few on display right now!). I like the font and bold colors of this one. I’m surprised they don’t sell more prints in their shop – I would probably buy more!
Verdict: I’ve noticed a few readers commenting that this subscription sends a lot of significant other cards, and now I’m starting to see it too. I would like to see more general use cards, with their same creative touch. I do appreciate that they send birthday cards every month, though. And the value is great for cards – and everything is so much more fun than cards I see in stores. (Apologies for using the word “fun” too much in this review).
