Magnolia Crate April 2018 Review

ready for warm info card april 2018 magnolia crate

Here's the product list for this month's box. The theme is all about warming things up after a long winter. Think beachy colors and sunny sentiments...

All cards are white and blank inside. I prefer blank-inside cards because I can tailor the message to my recipient and the event.

You're Aging Quite Nicely Birthday Card by Aqua Birch - Retail Value $5.99

This card is so gorgeous! The contrast of the small gold print on the paper makes the pattern feel even more sophisticated. The sentiment is both complimentary and a little bit quirky—just the thing for a good friend or a relative with a cheeky sense of humor.

Thank You Kindly Greeting Card by Idlewild Co. - Retail Value $5.00

This card's sunny, casual color scheme has me swooning. I love the combination of mint, pink, gray, and navy. I like the inky aesthetic of the illustration, too. I'm not in a great habit of sending thank you cards—I usually just opt for a quick email—but the feeling of getting a thank you card in the mail is so sweet, that I feel like I should put this card to work for someone I care about.

Happy Birthday Bonita Birthday Card by Idlewild Co. - Retail Value $5.00

Here's another design by Idlewild Co.! I kind of wish the spacing was a little different, so that "Bonita" didn't have to get broken up, but the rest of the card's rosy, flamingo-centric design is so cute that I don't mind too much. The turquoise water, peachy sky, yellow sun, and pink flamingo have me dreaming of warm summer days. What a great card for a summer birthday or someone who just loves a good beach vacay!

I Forgot To Get You A Gift Greeting Card by Lux & Trip - Retail Value $4.50 (Found here for $3.82)

This card isn't overtly summery, but I do love the pastel colors. (That rust shade really pops off the page.) This lighthearted card is a nice placeholder for those birthdays that just creep up on you. No need to worry about showing up to the party empty handed!

You're a Gem Greeting Card by Idlewild Co. - Retail Value $5.00

More Idlewild! I don't mind—I'm loving these card designs. This one is particularly cute. It has a sophisticated vibe, thanks to its pretty emerald illustration and ivory background. I like the brushstrokes a lot, too. This would make a great thank you card or just a sweet hello for a loved one.

The Verdict: I'm loving this subscription so much! I loved the assortment of occasions covered by this month's box. Most of these cards came from Idlewild Co. but I got to know a few different indie card companies I'd never heard of before, too. (This box is great for brand discovery). And for $19.99, I got $25.49 in value. Not bad!
