4 Stickers – Value $0.80?
Last month’s box took care of all of the lovey-dovey Valentine’s cards you’d need for this month, so this box is built around the theme of “Thoughtful”.
I couldn’t find these exact items online, so I linked to something similar in the Idea Chíc shop. I really like the clean, fresh design of these stickers. They’re great for sealing envelopes, or just sticking on a pal’s shirt when they need a pick-me-up!
Lavender Letterpress Notecard – Value $2.99
This subscription often features these one-sided, flat notecards, and I just love them. They’re made of thicker card, which has a light texture to it, almost like watercolor paper would. The lavender design (which is, aptly, printed in lavender ink) presses just so into the card, meaning there’s a bit of a textural element to appreciate, too.
The Idea Chíc logo appears on the back of all of these cards.
Sympathy Wreath Card – Value $4.00
As much as I’d love to never have the occasion to send a sympathy card, things happen now and then. How nice it’ll be in that unfortunate moment to have this beautiful, unique card to warm someone’s day. I love the smooth finish and the bright, pretty colors. It’s blank inside, as are all of these cards, so I can write whatever note seems fitting, I hate having to work around the corny or impersonal notes that come in so many store-bought cards.
I Wheelie Miss You Card – Value $4.00
How fun is this long, lean card? I think it’d be so great to send to a bicycle-loving, out-of-town pal. The green of the bike is springy and fresh, and like the other cards, it’s also blank inside.
I Thought of You Today Letterpress Card – Value $5.00
Going on coffee dates is the official pastime of my friends and I. This blank-inside card will be great for connecting with far-flung coffee-drinking pals. I especially like how the steam rising from the mug is printed in white, creating a design surprise you’ll likely feel before you see.
Thanks a Bunch Card – Value $4.00
This card will be great for the gardeners and other veggie lovers in my life. I like how elegantly the coloring is done on the vegetables. There’s an artfulness to it that keeps it looking too cartoony.
Verdict: I enjoyed the springtime vibe and playful sentiments of this Idea Chíc Stationery Box! There were lots of handy cards in here that I’ll be able to use this month and beyond. This $19.95 box had around $21.00 of items inside, so the value is right on the money. I find that this box is great for unconventional, charming designs with palpable handmade appeal.
