This year is going to be the year that I get way better about sending cards for my friends’ kids instead of the cheesy free ecards that make me cringe with their attempts at humor–but I order them anyway because I’m too late to get the real thing in the mail.
Instead, I am just adoring the letterpress cards from Sweetbeets. Designed and individually handpressed by Ontario mom Lisa Zuraw, they’re super eco-friendly as a bonus. Plus the designs themselves are more original than your standard cake with a candle. I especially love the little boy measuring himself against a dinosaur, and the girl from the waist down holding a balloon animal.
This way you still give a little kid (or at least the mom) a smile without being too much of a goofball. -Liz
