More Inspiration for Handmade Valentine’s Day Cards0
Valentines Day 2015 is extra special as it falls on a Saturday - no excuses not to celebrate! We love seeing all the beautiful cards that you are making, whether you are making for loved ones, making to sell or just making for fun and entering competitions and challenges (we know how addictive paper craft can be!) Do share your latest creations on our Facebook page or send us a tweet - let us know if you have used our card too!
At the Mill we make all of our own card and paper and because of this we are able to offer our papermilldirect customers some really special offers on card and paper that the mill produces - card and paper that you will not find produced anywhere else as it is uniquely created in our own mill here in the United Kingdom!
Our latest offer card is Harvest Buckram Embossed, 270gsm in A4. Buckram is a cloth most famous for covering books - take an old book from your bookshelf, remove the dust jacket and you will instantly feel the texture of our Buckram embossed card. It will make your projects feel beautifully tactile and give them an expensive, luxurious finish.
Find out more! - Harvest Buckram Embossed - as with all of our specials, it will only be available whilst stocks last, so don't miss out - sign up to the newsletter if you want to be kept up to date on the latest offer cards.
