Pregnancy Cards for the Mom-to-Be

Posted on May 26, 2015 by Brannon Cullum Addison | 0 Comments

When I first began my company, some of my favorite cards to design were new baby cards. As Happy Cactus has grown, I've also become more attune to market needs. While new baby cards are wonderful to give once a baby has arrived, they aren't quite appropriate for a baby shower celebrating the mother-to-be. With that in mind, I've been so pleased with the reception to my new mom/pregnancy card. They are great to slip in with a shower gift or send to a long-distance friend who has just shared the big news. You can find all of these cards in the online shop!

Beyond "Thinking of You": The New Good Vibes Card

Posted on May 21, 2015 by Brannon Cullum Addison | 0 Comments

Oftentimes when a friend or family member is going through a tough time I want to send them a card to let them know they are on my mind. Sometimes "thinking of you" can feel a bit formal (although my "thinking of you" lavender card remains a bestseller), so I wanted to design a card in a fresh color palette that was a little more cheery and upbeat. Let me introduce you to the new good vibes card:

Pretty cheerful, right? My other goal with this card was for it to be a bit more general and not just a sympathy or condolence card. Sometimes it's hard to know just what to say when someone is going through a tough time, but jotting a quick note does not go unappreciated. Even a quick "I'm here for you" or "Sorry you are having to go through this" goes a long way. Find the card in the shop here

Favorite New Stamps

I've said it before, the USPS has been killing it lately with new stamp releases. They recently released a handful of new stamps. Shopping the USPS store makes it super easy to stock up on stamps so you always have some handy for sending cards. Plus, you get to avoid waiting in line at the post office. My new favorites are below!

New Gold Foil Stamped Card that Celebrates Love

Posted on May 13, 2015 by Brannon Cullum Addison | 0 Comments

I couldn't be more thrilled to add a new foil stamped card to my collection.

This new card features dozens of hand-drawn hearts press in bright and shiny gold foil. What I love most about this card (besides the dazzling foil) is that it's a great card to have on hand for all types of occasions - from a quick love note to your significant other to a congratulations card for a newly engaged couple to a just because note to your bestie. Who would you send it to?
