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.

Flamingo Paperie logo

The Flamingo Paperie Artists have come up trumps again with 34 gorgeous new card designs and a range of stunning gift tags. The front runner at the moment is FP6120 A Birthday Pug by artist Laura Stone. No doubt because it’s such a cute design!

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!!

Another amazingly rich design is artist Lorraine Duff’s Hummingbirds design. This is matt textured with gold foil which makes it glint beautifully in the sunlight.

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.
