Welcome to Sarah Loves Cards

Sarah Loves Cards

Thank you for visiting my Sarah Loves Cards website and blog. After operating as a Phoenix Trader for 13 years I was, as you can imagine, devastated when the company  ceased trading.  This was primarily due to a failed and costly expansion into the US market. Thankfully the Greeting Card Industry (Printers and Industry Experts) rallied round. They helped to breath life back into the UK operation.

On 1st February 2018 the business relaunched as Flamingo Paperie. I signed up as a Pioneer Partner so that I could continue to supply you with their fabulous products.

Like Phoenix Trading, the Flamingo Paperie business will focus on greeting cards, wrapping paper and notecards  all year round. In the Autumn/Winter Charity Christmas Cards, Advent Calendars and Advent Calendar Cards will be added to the range. Flamingo Paperie products will represent at least 90% of my product range. I will also offer you a small range of complimentary products under my umbrella company Sarah Loves Cards.

I will continue to fly the flag for British design. My entire range will have been designed and manufactured in the UK using UK sourced, environmentally accredited materials.

NEW exclusive Flamingo Paperie Charity Christmas Cards

Christmas Sheep design

Our Cards Don’t Just Look Good, They Do Good

Christmas is coming to Flamingo Paperie (formerly Phoenix Trading). I am delighted to introduce you to a selection of their new, exclusive Charity Christmas Card designs. As last year, Flamingo Paperie will be making a donation to MacMillan Cancer Care, Together for Short Lives and Alzheimer’s Society from the sale of its Christmas Cards. All donations are made through the Phoenix International Charity which, to date, has donated in excess of £1.9 million to over 1000 charitable causes worldwide.

British Design Inspiration

The cute eco-flittered Christmas Sheep design above, by artist Tim Mason, is my current best seller.  There is also a matching giftwrap and tag. The message inside reads “Best Wishes for Christmas and the New Year”.

Polar Bear card design

Polar Bear by artist Karen Tye Bentley is also irresistible and costs just £3 for a pack of 8. That gorgeous blue scarf looks so beautifully cosy! The message reads simply “Merry Christmas”

Birds and Berries card design

Any bird lovers out there will love the beautiful Birds and Berries design by Laura Stone. This particular design is also blank inside so it could be used for Winter birthdays or Christmas thank you messages.

Flying Reindeer Card Design

If you’re looking for something a little bit different then check out this fun double-sided cut-out Flying Reindeer design by artist Alison Hullyer. The message also reads “Best Wishes for Christmas and the New Year.

Christmas Sheep, Birds and Berries and Flying Reindeer are all available in packs of 8 for £4.50.

Quirky 3D Designs

King is Born Card Design

Snowy Tree Card Design

Flamingo Paperie has also designed a stunning range of 5 die-cut cards with gold foiling detail to create an eye-catching 3D effect. Here’s just a couple of examples. They have all been left blank for your own messages.

Rudolph Get Ready Card Design

This cute reindeer design is great fun for the recipients. They simply pop out the 8 pieces (no scissors required) and assemble Rudolphe to create a unique free-standing Christmas card. Who could fail to be impressed?

Laura Stone’s beautifully Summery Poppies and Scabious is also flying out, I suspect due to the beautiful colour tones and cut-out detail.

 Looking Out To Sea. by Claire Henley is one of my personal favourites because it transports me to warmer climes. Those sun loungers are calling to me!!
