Moglea Extraordinary Love Card – Value $5.50

This is probably my favorite card in the box. It is printed on extra extra thick stock with neon drips and gold foil stamping. It comes with a pointed flap envelope. I loved looking through the Moglea site, I think I’ve found a new favorite stationery source. Beautiful stuff.

Jasmine Jones for Studio Calico in Best Uncle Ever and Best Aunt Ever

These flat cards have such a cheerful design. I’m not quite sure how many people send their aunts and uncles cards but I thought they were cute. The cards are blank on the back save for branding and come with white square flap envelopes.

Lifelovepaper for Studio Calico in You’re a Diamond, Dear. They Can’t Break You.

This would be such a nice card to send to a friend who is going through a tough time. It is blank inside which means lots of room to handwrite encouraging words. It comes with a blue square flap envelope.

Studio Calico Phrases Stamp

The June box included a stamp with a variety of phrases like “Happy Birthday!” and “Thinking of You.” It is a nice addition the box and would be great for handmade cards. It does not come with an ink pad. The first few stamps came out nice but as I continued to use it, I found ink liked to cling to the low blank areas on each stamp surface.

Verdict: This is a great little box! Such a good variety and I love that there were 2 non-card items in the box. I have a thing for paper goods and was especially impressed by the inclusion of the Moglea card – it is a favorite item for sure. This box makes it easy to always have a card on hand for the right moment, everyone loves getting snail mail and you can’t put a value on a hand-written note!

  1. They send beautiful items. If this were a little less expensive I would subscribe. I love cards and stationary and just don’t use them occasionally, and it would be nice to have a supply in the house.
