Hello dears! We are so excited to bring to you all a review of the stationary from the whimsical etsy shop, The Little Birch. In the midst of this busy world of technology and virtual communication, sometimes it’s so refreshing to take a step back and write someone a letter. Send that certain person a bit of snail mail, thanking them for a gift, checking in to see how they’re doing, or just letting them know how much you care. It’s a timeless act, and one that I hope will never go out of style.
I will admit that the best bit out of the whole action is getting to use and give someone a lovely work of art in the stationary that you employ. Is it just me, or does beautiful paper make you just itch to sit down and take a few extra minutes to tell someone you’re thinking of them? I just love doing that. And The Little Birch Etsy shop makes it such a joy with the winsome illustrations as done by blogger Rachelle Marie from Beloved Blue Bird, that bedeck every card. From whimsical deer with little birdies perched atop its antlers; to intricate, doodle-y filigrees and flora surrounding simple type, The Little Birch provides stationary that breathes the words charm and loveliness.
It was positively lovely working with Rachelle to put together this review. She was so sweet and kind in her communication, and the shipping was fast and packaging impeccable. Having just opened up her shop this past August, her selection of stationary is growing, and we can hardly wait to see what she releases next! Her latest addition is the “Bunny Love” card, featuring two bunnies gazing at a great moon in front of them. It’s simply charming! Rachelle sent along our girls’ selection of the “Hello Deer” and “Floral Thank You” cards for us to review today.
First up, we have the “Floral Thank You” card. Now, we all know that you can never have enough thank-you cards if you have generous family and friends around 😉 And this particular stationary has our hearts with its sweet botanical illustrations. The timeless simplicity of the design and color story is quite lovely, and one that could be used year round, for whatever the occasion of thanks. The card is composed of a matte card-stock that is of a nice quality, and comes packaged in cellophane with a blank envelope to send it in.
Next, we have the “Hello Deer” card, perfect for any time that you might want to let someone know you’re thinking of them. The little deer illustration on the front is charming, and I want to keep it for myself and hang it on the art wall in my bedroom 😉 Inside is printed the words “Hello Deer”, which is so quaint and punny, I just love it! As with all of The Little Birch’s cards, this one comes wrapped in cellophane with a blank envelope to send your letter of loveliness in.
