My house as many of you will know is full of frames filled with photos or art, some are prints, but the majority are repurposed items, in particular Postcards and Greeting Cards that I have either received in the post (recycling at it’s best) or I have bought.
Greeting card manufacturers spend a fortune on Artists doing their designs and although they are great to send a message they sometimes are just to beautiful not to use as Art, especially as they are cheap as chips.
I thought I would share with you a few of the ones I currently have framed around my home for inspiration and then there is also my top 5 favourites you can buy at the moment which would look awesome framed.
This is part of the kids Gallery Wall, the Elephant card we received from Claire of Style Arch at our Wedding Renewal and it reminded me so much of the kids. The Pig card is from Sophie Morrell and Addison picked it.
Another of Sophie Morrell designs is these Teacups, perfect for our Kitchen and in the distance you can see one of Lucky Dip club postcards with a cute slogan.
Lastly how much retro cuteness can you get in this postcard, Sun Jellies send them with every order (so I have a fair few), they commissioned them from an Artist and there was no way it was going in the bin. If anyone would like one do ask as I have a couple spare.
The heart card with gold foil once framed would look like a stunning piece of art but is in fact £1.50 from Marks and Spencer.
The beach huts are from one of my favourite greeting card shops Sophie Morrell, as you know from above I already have many of their cards framed in my home, this is so kitsch and would look lovely in a simple white wood frame.
Lastly there is nothing better than a card that has a comical content and Gin Bunny Prints are the best on the market. I love this for either our kitchen or entrance hall.
Do you frame cards and postcards ? For me someone whose taste can change in months this is a cheap way to inject art into your home.
