A cute card idea

Handmade cards for your loved ones – longer-lasting than any text message!

Even in this era of social media, a greetings card with a kind message has lost none of its charm. Who can resist a sweet, handwritten card when it’s obvious that the sender has put lots of thought and care into it? And not only that: a homemade card will still be around to enjoy long after a hastily-sent text message has been deleted. The edding 1200 range of colour pens in metallic colours allows you to decorate and write on very dark shades of card. Available in a choice of six exciting, shimmering metallic shades, they produce opaque writing on any kind of paper. All you have to do is buy some dark paper or a pack of ready-made cards and you’re all set. You can get your message across with very few words – in our example we wrote a sentimental message and added a couple of fun emojis. So, as you can see, you have total freedom to design however you want!
