Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside the Cardbox
I love, love, love this box. It has such a matronly, delicate feel to it. Ever so pretty.
Here is everything that we received in the Cardbox.
What a fun collection of greeting cards and gift tags from Sea + Lake Paper Co.!
I will be honest — most of these I can see other people giving out, particularly Mr. I’m Not a Tree.
So what is all this stuff?
Sea + Lake Thank You Card
Love this card! It has a fun and simple feeling to it! Not sure if those are balloons on there or not but this is a great way to let someone know that you appreciate them and what they’ve done for you. The cards we received were blank on the inside – so we can get really specific.
Sea + Lake Paper Co Wish You Were Here Card
Particularly, apt if you are missing someone at present, this card says I miss you but doesn’t get all teary eyed about it. Love the tounge in cheek humor a lot of this companies cards have. Check out their shop for some very funny (and slightly inappropriate) cards.
(inside -all cards-)
Sea + Lake Paper Co. Happy Birthday Card
Love this one! What a cute way to give someone a birthday shout! I think this is really good in any instance involving a guy – for a guy or from a guy this is totally suitable. I like the colors, to me this card just screams fun!
Sea + Lake Paper Co. Pizza Card
My very favorite of all the cards that were included this month. Not only is this card adorable as far as its message, I am also loving the whimsical feeling it possesses. Is it not enough that I love you more than delicious pizza?!
Sea + Lake Paper Co. You’re Fantastical Card
This card is PERFECT for young girls out there, as a bit of encouragement or praise for a job well done. Very fun and just a little bit prissy which is kind of perfect for most of the young ladies I happen to live with!
Sea + Lake Paper Co. Gift Tags
$2.80 (for all 4)
Okay these are awesome! They are super cheeky and a perfect addition to any gift.
Love the center one the most (I think). So clever and cute!
Seriously, these are so funny! A lot of times, particularly if it’s someone you want to think highly of you – gift giving can be quite stressful — tags like this take some of that pressure off.That’s a big part in why we like them so much but also because they are adorable!
The backs all had To / From (although they all had different fonts)
Sea + Lake Paper Co. Notepad
If only being an adult were that simple. Amirite?! This is super fun and I will definitely use this. The listmakers out there will agree you can never have too many notepads.
I like that it comes with the option of a magnet
Totally optional as it wasn’t attached to the back of the book!
Sendtiment Gift Tags
A little extra! Cut out these cutesie gift tags to put on… just about anything!
So in summary
We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. I think the one thing that stands out with the Cardbox is the presentation. There’s a focus on aesthetics and they’ve brought us something beautiful that we can enjoy. We love that about it! Curation is also awesome! I really like that we are introduced to a different shop each month, and we experience each facet of that shop’s business. That’s not something that is done often because there is usually such a push for variety. That’s not to say there isn’t variety with the Cardbox either, because we’ve received quite a selection in this months box. We’re receiving the variety from only one source and we think that’s a different and attractive approach. Quality is also great, all the items included are amazing and worthy of the box.
I really enjoyed this box, I felt like all the elements come together and we get a really nice experience. This is a box for anyone who loves pretty stationary and greeting cards.
As far as box economy the Cardbox is $15 and has a $5 shipping fee. We received about $33 worth of stationary and cards! So we definitely think the box is a great deal!
