Cakeify Notecards

Cakeify Mini Notecards

I don’t know about you but sometimes I am overwhelmed by all that blank space inside a normal card as I don’t have all that much to say. This is why I am such a fan of a) gift tags and b) tiny miniature kawaii cards. Following this thought, I have added some mini notecard sets to the shop.

They’re slightly larger than a credit card and have Cakeify gocco printed in a nice black cherry colour and come with matching handmade envelopes that please me very much. I forgot to photograph the envelope by itself but I will do that soon.  Some of them are already stamped with Thank You and the others are blank for you to stamp or stick something suitable. The reverse is blank for your little message. Perfect for popping through a neighbour’s door or alongside a small gift.

Gift Sets

Even better, you can also get gift sets! These consist of a single card with either a washi book heart or a badge of your choice. Write a little note on the back and it’s the perfect mini gift!

I like these a lot – hope you do too!
