The June Happy Mail came with a 10″ x 8″ print perfect for framing. It also announces the theme and color scheme for this month’s box. Everything in the box is in bright, summery hues.
In addition to cards, this month’s Happy Mail came with a gel pen, peach-color circle stickers, and a plastic macaron. The pen is very cute and loaded with ink in 5 different colors so the ink color will change as you use it. It is not the best gel pen, you’ll get skips if you write too quickly, but it is still adorable. The circle stickers are great for sealing up envelopes and add an extra pop of color.
Here’s another look at the macaron. It is mint green and made of plastic. I thought it might have lip gloss inside but it’s empty. Secret tiny storage!
You Did It! Card
This small flat card has a mint green diamond print and comes in a bright yellow, square flap envelope.
On the reverse, it says “You did it!” I like this as any anytime congrats card for a job, life, or thing done well.
Pink Palm Trees Card
This pink flat card has a tropical touch with three palm trees.
The back of the card reads “wish you were here” in a sweet hand-written style font.
Being Apart Card
As someone who is 2 weeks sugar-sober, I get it. I love this gender neutral approach to a “miss you” card. It comes with a blue square flat envelope that suits the yellow print on the card so well!
Legit Cake Card
I like this photo print flat card a lot, though I don’t know who I’d send it to or for what. It would look really cute taped up on my wall above my desk, I’m all for keeping cute cards as decor. It comes with a bright blue envelope with a self-adhesive strip.
No Regrets Card
This flat card has a photo of neatly arranged erasers and reads “No Regrets.” Very cute! It comes with a white envelope with a square flap.
For Ever and Ever Card
I love the brush stroke design on this flat card. This would make a good anniversary card or anytime card for a friend, spouse, or girlfriend/boyfriend. The peachy-coral envelope is perfect.
Love Floral Card
This flat square card is feminine and beautifully designed. I love the roses paired with a bold white sans-serif font. It comes with a pink square flap envelope.
Bike Basket Card
This is my least favorite of the cards but it is still very sweet. It reminds me of a few years ago when everything had a bike printed on it. It comes with a light green envelope with a square flap.
Heart Eyes Engagement Card
I think the illustration on this folded card is adorable. I like the black, white, and red print and am into the gray envelope it comes with.
The inside reads “Congrats On Your Engagement!”
Verdict: This was my first A Beautiful Mess Happy Mail and I was totally charmed by it. I love the bright and cheerful designs and feel very set with all the cards. The pen, macaron, and stickers were a nice touch and I even liked the shipping envelope everything came in. There was a nice mix of flat and folded cards and nearly all the envelopes were colorful. I’ve heard there can be too many significant other cards in Happy Mail but I think this month’s mix leaned more toward general affection, applicable to friends as well as significant others.
