There’s not an occasion in the calendar that these days doesn’t have a greetings card to go with it.
According to this history of greeting cards the practice dates back to the ancient Chinese. They exchanged goodwill message to celebrate New Year. The early Egyptians used papyrus scrolls to send greetings.
Nowadays the Hallmark company is almost a metaphor for greetings cards. It’s certain that they’ve done a lot to ingrain in us the habit of sending cards and is synonymous with the practice.
But if you’re looking for something a little different to the High Street and Hallmark our 3D pop-up cards will hit the spot and tempt you to push an envelope with something novel inside it.
Our online shop displays a wide selection for every occasion – but here’s just a few to whet your appetite.
- Bicycle: if you know a cycling fiend or Tour de France fanatic then this 3D card is perfect. The detail on it is staggering: springs under the saddle, a headlamp on the front and reflectors on the spoke. A super card for any occasion.
- Pirate Ship 3D pop-up card: What little – or big – boy wouldn’t love to channel his inner Jack Sparrow with this brilliant pirate ship card flying a scarlet Jolly Roger flag? Ah ha Jim Lad!
- A bunch of thanks with these lovely lilies: When you want to say ‘thank you’ in a memorable way this card will do the job with panache and charm.
Hatch, match and anniversary
- Horse drawn carriage: Love and marriage go together like … well a horse and carriage. So what better way to say ‘Congratulations on your marriage’ or ‘Happy Anniversary’ than this gorgeous, detailed carriage with two horses.
- Birth or Christening: To say welcome to a new born or celebrate a Christening or naming ceremony this super cute 3D pram with baby inside will be well received.
- Channelling the famous Willow Pattern legend/myth – featuring a loving couple in a boat wafting past a bridge and a willow tree this card is something different for any romantic occasion.
I know, I know. It’s only May. But time flies and blink a couple of times and the Christmas season will be upon us.
The Fab Gift Boutique 3D card department has a super range of pop-up Christmas cards. There really are too many to feature in this post so here’s two of our favourites:
- 3D Christmas tree and stocking on a fireplace: The tableau in this card will bring a smile to your lips and to your mind the famous poem by Clement Clarke Moore ‘A visit from St Nicholas’. Simply delightful.
- 3D pop-up Santa with his sleigh and reindeers: Who could fail to be charmed by this 3d card featuring a fabulous fraught looking Santa rushing about delivering all the presents? It’s so cute.
