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.

Send Joyful Messages to your Friends and Loved Ones this Easter

Easter Card Selection

Spread Easter joy!

Easter is such a gorgeous time of year! The cold winter months are well and truly behind us and our gardens and fields are bursting into life again. The Easter Bank Holiday weekend is second to Christmas for bringing loved ones together. Sadly, not everybody will be able to make it. An Easter themed card, with a short message inside, will remind those that can’t join you that they are in your thoughts. Our cards are blank inside to give you the flexibility to tailor your own messages.

Flowers and Wellies Card

Beautiful Spring Florals

Our Flowers and Yellow Wellies Card is proving particularly popular this Spring. It is a matt 5×5 card with a white 100 gsm envelope. Designed by artist Gerry Murray.

Painted Eggs Card

Eco Friendly Flitter

Eco-friendly crystalline flitter is being trialled for the first time this Spring, a vegetable starch alternative to plastic flitter (otherwise known as glitter). You will find it on our new 6 x 6 by Painted Egg design Gerry Murray.

Chicks and Bunnies Galore

This 6 x 6 cute embossed chick design by artist Bryony Clarkson is proving a real hit. Bunny lovers won’t be disappointed either. We have two gorgeous bunny designs in our range now. Both are 5 x 5 and matt textured : Two Bunnies by Kate Garrett and our fun new Easter Wishes design  by Jennifer Bartlett.

Still Excellent Value

All of the cards cost just £2 each. Buy 10 or more cards and get 20% off. Orders of £30 or more will qualify for free delivery. All of these gorgeous new Flamingo Paperie designs, as well as lots of old favourites, are available on my website.

Let me bring my cards to you!

If you love paper stationery, and live in the Dorset/Hampshire/Wiltshire area, then why not host a “pop up shop”? Simply pop the kettle on, open a packet of biscuits, then invite a few friends over to browse through my card baskets. You will earn a 10% commission on all sales as a discount off your order (or 15% if I get another booking).

If home life is frantic, I could set up a display in your work canteen for everybody to browse during their coffee break. The 10% commission could then be in the form of a cash donation to a charity of your choice.

Alternatively, If time is really tight, you could simply borrow a stock bag for a couple of days. Pass it around family and friends and you will receive a 10% commission as a discount off your own order. Moreover, if you collect £200 worth of orders, you’ll receive an additional surprise gift as a thank you. Book me now !Flamingo Paperie new January range image
