Leading greetings card company Hallmark Cards has launched some brand new card ranges - the Bellissima and Vintage collection.
As its name suggests, Bellissima is a beautiful collection of exquisitely handcrafted cards perfect for those looking to express simple yet meaningful messages to loved ones. Consisting of 39 sophisticated designs, cards in the range feature elegant typography and are based on either pearlised ivory or white linen embossed boards. Cards are adorned with intricate, unique and delicately applied attachments and are complemented by pearl envelopes for the perfect finishing touch.
I have to say that when I was sent some samples I was totally blown away by the Bellissima card range, they are just stunning and totally different to any cards I've laid eyes on. They are more in the old fashion style but still hip and funky at the same time. They are very beautiful and are excellent quality so it definitely shows you've put time and effort thinking about the card presented to your loved one.
The Bellissima range is available now, priced from £2.99 (RRP), from selected Hallmark branded stores, high street card shops and selected supermarkets.
For the vintage cards Hallmark teamed up with renowned designer and vintage champion, Wayne Hemingway, which was inspired by Britain's rich design history.
This new range follows the current trend for all things vintage in fashion and design, and features an eclectic mix of imagery inspired by the Museum Collection that HemingwayDesign co ownes, The Land of Lost Content.
The Hallmark cards and HemingwayDesign collaboration has resulted in a range of twelve card designs, paying homage to glamorous past eras. Ranging from the fifties to the seventies, the cards are designed to please any fashion conscious recipient.
I wasn't so struck on these cards as I was for the Bellissima range, probably because I'm not much of a fashion girl but they are still nice and I could see a big market out there for them with all the crazy fashion stuff going on at the moment!
The new range is now available from £1.69 (RRP), from selected Tesco stores nationwide.
