Traditional

Across The Board from Words ‘n’ Wishes

“The designs go down well because of the sentiment verse; Glasgow people like their verses!”

Handmade/Hand-Finished

Top Of The World Cards from Me&McQ

“Gorgeous 3D designs – such as a birdcage, ice-cream van, coral reef – that are very intricate. At £3.99 retail, they are very affordable for a hand-finished card.”
