fabulous coincidence (fantastic stationery)

I picked out a bunch of blank cards from Fabulous Stationery so I'd have some on hand to send to family overseas. While I was at it, I picked up a few more for family members' birthdays and summer holidays. Here are a few . . .

Things I like: they have a really large selection. Even the dollar card shop, where I chose these, had pages and pages of modern, abstract, fun designs to choose. From ordering to receiving only took a few days, and my order was spot on. The print quality is good, too, and the colors match well to the on-screen colors on the website.

On the downside, the dollar card cardstock is a little flimsy, but since the the cards I chose were only a buck apiece, I can't complain too much. I'd bet the prices of their more expensive lines and personalized stationery are reflected by thicker, nicer stock.

Now for the fun coincidence: this pretty chandelier card perfectly matches a project of mine from a little while back . . .

. . . this wax paper faux capiz shell chandelier I finished up back in March.

As a bonus, the olive green in the background of the card is a nice match for the olive green accents on some of the pillows in the guest room (where the chandelier also hangs).

So I'm probably keeping this one to frame.

Anyway, I'm a big fan of inexpensive, attractive cards, so I'm really pleased to have found this resource. Do you have any favorite places to buy stationery? Or do you make it all yourself? I'd love to know!
