Is it just us, or are greeting cards having a major moment? These days, we’ve grown accustomed sending and receiving miniature pieces of art, complete with exquisite paper stocks, gilded accents and clever messages. Look no further than our partner Rifle Paper Co., whose cards would bring even the biggest scrooge a heavy dose of postmarked holiday cheer. (Their prints are pretty special too!)
But too often, that gorgeous card that we admire on the mantle for a few weeks gets relegated to a drawer—or even worse (gasp!) the trash—never to see the light of day again. This time around, why not give your holiday cards the staying power they deserve by custom framing them and making them part of your annual seasonal decor?
‘Tis the season of holiday cards, but we think this approach can apply to any of the beautiful greetings that you might have stashed away. They’re the cool art you didn’t realize you already own! Plus, looking at your framed note each day will bring warm sentiments of whoever sent the good tidings your way.
In the spirit of the season, we custom framed a few Rifle Paper Co. holiday cards we'd love looking at every December...and beyond. Pro tip: As with anything artifactual, we love how cards look floated. Scroll through this inspo—and then head to your mailbox, your mantle or your desk drawer to uncover any lovely cards you have that would take on new life in a beautiful custom frame.
