national stationery show 2012: sweet nothings

by Grace Bonney

For me, cards are almost always about telling someone special that you care about them. I’ve gotten better at sending “just because” cards, but I always prefer to send something sweet. So for today’s National Stationery Show post, I wanted to share my favorite lovey-dovey cards. These would be perfect to tuck inside someone’s bag on the way to work or to celebrate a special occasion. No matter what the excuse, these are great to keep around your house just in case. xo, grace
