Come on, admit it! Everyone likes getting personal cards and letters in their mailbox. And, when you give gifts, isn't it an extra bonus to get a beautiful, thoughtful greeting card to go with the gift? And handing someone a gift card to a store or restaurant just seems a little more personal when it is packaged in a nice greeting card with a message, rather than just handing them the gift card all by itself. But, WOW! Have you checked the price on some of those greeting cards lately? They are approaching the price of the gift in some cases! I would rather put the $4.00-$7.00 I could spend on a greeting card towards a nicer gift!
I know that some of you make your own cards. My niece makes beautiful cards and she has all of the supplies to make such beautiful ones for every occasion. I have made a few, but I am just not that talented person who can spend that much time and effort and money on supplies to get a gorgeous product, (like she does), for all of the events where the cards would be given. I truly applaud all of you handmade card makers out there. Those handmade cards are a gift in and of themselves as they are pieces of art and worth every penny you might spend on them.
But, I am a grandma with grandchildren who live in 3 states. I love sending them greeting cards for various holidays and birthdays. It means so much to them to get mail of their own. That is why I am so excited to team up today with DollarTree and tell you about how they are saving my life (and my pocket book)! Starting today, you will be able to purchase high quality Hallmark Cards at Dollar Tree for just $1.00 and in some cases, 2 for $1.00!
I know what you are thinking. Hallmark Cards for 50 cents? They must be some cheap knock-off version of the real thing. But you are thinking wrong! These are the real, high quality deal. The quality paper and the wonderful sentiments are all there. With hundreds of new greeting cards to choose from, you can celebrate every moment with your friends and family without breaking the bank! I have to show you this adorable one that goes right along with our 3 Winks Design theme!
There are perfect cards for every occasion! Look at these!
Don't you love the big eyes on that cow? And I love the sweet saying on the front of the blue baby card. "tiny laundry, tiny shoes, tiny smiles,...great big news!" I could just die over that! And those are just a few of the 2 for $1.00 cards from the Heartline collection.
The Expressions from Hallmark line has bigger cards, or sometimes the licensed cards (like Disney) that are also a terrific value at just $1.00 each! Take a look!
Now, the big news is that today, August 30th, more of the Hallmark lines are also available! You can find Mahogany, Vida, Tree of LIfe and joyfully yours collections all available at Dollar Tree! Here is a super sweet example from the joyfully yours collection:
Have you ever stood for a really long time at the greeting card section of a store trying to pick out a card and finding it difficult to choose because so many of them touch you or make you laugh? Now you can afford to buy more than one and save it for the perfect occasion! I have to admit that I have gone a little nuts over being able to afford some great cards. We have made a little video to kind of spoof my excitement. Check it out here, we hope that you enjoy it!
With over 6,500 Dollar Tree stores, nationwide, I hope that there is one close enough for you to visit and stock up on some awesome greeting cards! You can also go to www.DollarTree.com to check out the details.
One great idea is to stock up on birthday cards and put them in an organizer so that you are ready to send your greetings out every month! Now that Hallmark cards are so inexpensive at DollarTree, this is so doable. Here is a cute organizer from Etsy, or come up with your own! Have fun getting ready to hand out all of your best wishes, with a lot of help from DollarTree and Hallmark!
