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.

It’s Be-Ginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas !!

Gin themed Christmas card

A Big Thank You to Our Suppliers

Launching this year’s Flamingo Paperie Christmas Range has been no mean feat! Many high street retailers have pulled their production back into the UK which has caused supply issues. We have also had staffing issues at the warehouse caused by illness and Covid-19 restrictions. Despite these difficulties the Directors at Flamingo Paperie have produced one of our best Christmas ranges yet. UK printers have rewarded our loyalty to the British Print Industry and have prioritised our production.

Exclusive Range of Quirky British Designs

Our 2021 Christmas offering is made up of 24 NEW Charity Christmas Card designs, all available in packs of 8 cards, as well as many of the old favourites. There are also 33 NEW Christmas Accessories : 3 new advent calendars, 3 new advent calendar cards, 4 new wrapping paper designs with matching tags, 2 new 3D single cards and 2 special pop-out, dressing up single cards. To keep the children entertained we have produced 6 new colour-in Christmas products. We have also launched 3 delightful new bunting designs, 2 thank you notecard packs and 3 sets of five mini-boxes. Plus a new money wallet design for sending monetary gifts.

Best Selling Christmas Cards so Far!

Four designs are proving to be front runners, some of which have already necessitated a reprint. As predicted, our cute and quirky 6 x 6″ Highland Cows (in the snow) design by artist Tim Mason (code XC152) is our best seller.

 

Highland Cows Christmas Card Design

Last year’s popular 3 x 8″ Dog Line Up design by artist Karen Tye-Bentley (code XC133) continues to be a firm favourite this year.

Dog Christmas Card Image

Not surprisingly this 5 x 7″ gin themed design ‘Be(gin)ning to Look a Lot Like Christmas’ by artist Clare Mcelfatrick (code XC159) is already out of stock.  ‘Flittered’ for extra sparkly wonderfulness, this card is currently being reprinted. We hope to have it back on our website by the 2nd November.

Gin Christmas Card Design

Our other front runner, also by artist Tim Mason, is this  beautiful 5 x 7″ Mistletoe Tree design with a beautiful olive background. It glitters with sparkly eco-flitter too. Absolutely gorgeous if you’re looking for something slightly more traditional (code : XC129). We have also used the same design on a thankyou note card pack (code XN008).

Mistletoe Tree Christmas Card Design

Last year these three pop-out single card designs turned out to be so popular that we have introduced two new ones : XC163 Madonna and Child  and XC162 Penguin.

Pop Out Card DesignsNew Pop Out Card Designs

We have also launched two new Diamond-Shaped 3-D single card designs this year: 5 x 7″ XC164 Nativity by artist Kate Garrett and 5 x 7″ XC165 Buckingham Palace by best-selling artist Amanda Loverseed.

All of these single card designs form part of our multi-buy offer at just £2 each or £1.60 each if you buy 10 or more single cards. The offer applies to both our everyday and Christmas single card range. Excellent value!

Brand New Summer Supplement

Flamingo Paperie Summer 2021 Supplement Cover

Our Creative Director and Founder Robin Bradley is also keen to try out a new 3D card concept. We are trialling two designs : Father’s Day FP7080 features silver foil and extra stuck-on detail.  Our gorgeous Beautiful Birthday Wishes FP7083 card design also has mounted 3D-effect detailing. Two tiny real (ish) diamonds enhance the design and take it to a whole new level of gorgeousness!
