Handmade Autumn themed greeting cards

My wife and I send lots of cards to people in the mail, believe it or not. A lot of them are thank yous, but many are seasonal too.

I recently came across Cards by Karen while browsing for handmade Autumn cards on Etsy. Fall is my wife's favorite season and she mails a lot of cards to customers of her business. You can see where this is going...

Karen has a beautiful collection of Autumn cards so this is right up our alley.

Autumn themed greeting cards

In the shop you'll find unique handmade greeting cards and gift tags for birthdays, seasons, and holidays. Karen also sells thank you cards, invitations, and personalized monogram cards.

Right now, the Autumn theme cards are popular. At least in my house they are. These cards are all special and striking, and great for Thanksgiving coming up. Envelopes are included of course.

Forest green Autumn greeting card

Each card is constructed with white card stock as a base, and the bottom of the cards is accented with a color-coordinated striped ribbon. Underneath the ribbon is a strip of cream colored card stock.

I love the colors and the overall quality. Let me say this - you will not find cards like these in stores. These are top notch. What's more, the cards are blank inside, so no matter the occasion, you can make the message yours.

Autumn leaf cutouts

The leaves you see above are cut from textured card stock in golden yellow, roasted pepper, and sun coral. Each leaf is enhanced with either pumpkin spice or dark brown chalk ink. Karen has layered all of the leaves to make them pop off of each card. They really add character, don't they?

So who wants to win some cards?! Karen has been gracious enough to offer up a set of six (6) Autumn themed cards to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.
