Card Couture

I am always delighted to receive orders for my cards and to hear the stories behind the card retailer. Very often I find very keen greeting card collectors and connoisseurs are at the heart of the business like Bridget Jukes the owner of my new online stockist, Card Couture.

Card Couture is a beautiful contemporary website with a gorgeous hand-picked collection of luxury cards and stationery just right for card-lovers trying to find something special that they cannot find on their high street.

Bridget has served 24 years in the Army, and coming to the end of her career she has turned her hand to e-tailing.

Having lived in York for two years, Bridget would finish work and pop into a shop on her way home to enjoy the coffee and cake, but admits she was a sucker for the cards that they sold in the shop and found them hard to resist. When Bridget moved away, she found it difficult to find the types of luxury cards she was used to in York, and that's how Card Couture was born!

CC: "I wanted to make it easy for those with little time, to find gorgeous cards! Our website does that!"

CC: "I love colourful, contemporary and original designs! I want to try and bring back traditional card sending so that people put pen to paper and personalise their cards with a message from the heart.

CC: "We can't wait for Card Couture to grow and for others to enjoy the cards that we have to offer."

The website also has some other useful features, such as a function to store your favourites, recommendations of the month, best sellers, new product features, and a page for special offers.The website is also really easy to navigate which means it is a pleasure to use.

You can also find Card Couture on Facebook and Twitter, so follow along to be the first to see new designs, promotions and competitions.
