The theme of this box is “Valentine’s Day”. I can’t wait to see what the designs are!

Happy Valentine’s Day Letterpress Greeting Card with Heart Liner – Value $5.95

I love the letterpress cards that come in this box. They’re made of slightly thicker card—the design is pressed slightly into the card so that you can feel how it’s recessed just so.

The card has a landscape orientation, but it opens sideways like a portrait-style card would. It’s so elegant and simple. And I love the heart pattern inside the envelope.

Wishing You the Happiest Valentine’s Day Vintage Banner Card – Value $4.00

This blank-inside card has an austere, vintage feel. It reminds me of the banners you see on old circus posters from the early 1900s. Something about how the message is phrased makes it feel more formal—I might not give it to my sweetheart, but it’ll be great for a friend!

Vintage Girl Valentine’s Love Card – Value $4.00

More vintage vibes! This card is very old-timey—it’s charming, though not quite my style. I like that these cards are all blank inside so that you can customize the message for your loved one.

Chalkboard Die Cut Valentine Greeting Card – Value $5.00

What a cute concept for a card! Between the cutout shape and the chalkboard-inspired design, this card is really sweet.

The card doesn’t fold at all, but it’s blank on the back. I like that there is space on the front to list your recipient’s name so that you can fill the back with your message.

Puppy Love Valentine’s Card – Value $4.00

I know a few dog lovers who’d adore getting this card. Look at the silly faces on these Dalmatians! I like the conversation-heart-inspired sayings in the background.

Bee Mine Mini Heart Note White Cotton with Glassine Sleeve – Value $2.25

This card comes with a tiny envelope that’s slightly transparent, but still matte. It’s kind of like parchment paper.

This one-sided card has a letterpress style design (so it presses into the card) that’s bright pink. The pun is playful and sweet. This would be a great card for a niece, nephew, or other little Valentine on your list!

Valentine’s Stickers – Value $1.00?

I would totally use these pastel hearts to seal envelopes, punctuate a Valentines greeting, or just stick on my sweetheart’s shirt!

Verdict: The cards inside this month’s Idea Chíc Stationery Box were really cute and beautifully made. Even though the designs in this box were a bit too vintage/classic for my taste, I think it’s a great box (not all months are this vintagey, but they definitely have a more traditional style). This $19.95 box had around $26.00 of items inside, so it’s definitely worth it for stationery lovers!

Do you think you’ll subscribe to Idea Chíc this year?

  1. That “Bee Mine” card is so cute!

    Except for the Banner Card and the Vintage card; I thought the cards were all really well done and offered something different.

    I think the Vintage card would have been amazing if there wasn’t a white background (making it look more like a true vintage card). The Banner card was too much unnecessary stuff along side that beautiful letterpress card. Maybe if it went more in that banner font direction and was a little vintage circusy…
