Shimmery Floral Illustration Card

This card is so dreamy! It reminds me of elementary school folders with its colorful, doodle-like designs and iridescent shimmer. It’s hard to see in the photos, but the fading blue and magenta background of this card has a subtle twinkle to it, almost like illuminator makeup does. It’s super fine and eye-catching. This card is perfect for late-summer birthdays.

Letterpress Floral Doodle Card in Fuchsia

Though it comes with an envelope, this card is more like a postcard than a typical greeting card. It doesn’t fold (it’s flat like a postcard), but there’s nothing on the second side, so you can use both for your note. The design is cute and has an ever-so-slight texture to it, due to the letterpress process. I could see giving this card as a best wishes greeting to a kiddo heading into the new school year.

Sweet Strawberry Birthday Card

I love the bright, juicy red of this card and its envelope! The “sweet” pun does lean into saccharine territory, but the whole minimalist, almost retro design is so charming that I couldn’t care less. I know quite a few folks with end-of-summer birthdays, so I’m happy to have this adorable greeting card in my collection!

Hanging Planter Notecard

This card is flat and one-sided like the fuchsia letterpress design from earlier, but it has a Pennie Post logo on the second side. Call it a fad, but I’ve been loving the plant trend that’s been going strong for the past few months, so I’m digging this darling card.

Verdict: Pennie Post has such darling designs each month! They definitely err on the cutesy side, but I know plenty of folks who would love receiving cards like these. The subscription costs $11.63 each month, which makes each of the four items valued at under $3.oo a piece. Considering the fact that cards by small makers go for at least $4.00 if not more at the store, I’d say this subscription is definitely worth it!
