The Lucky Dip - Idlewild Co.

Where to go? Idlewild Co.


What does it cost? $5+ plus shipping

What's it all about?
Get (5) or (10) of our hand-painted assorted greeting cards & envelopes in our black and white striped grab bags!
Each grab bag is unique and contains current and discontinued Idlewild Co., or Rocket Ink designs. Design themes include but are not limited to: Birthday, Seasonal, Wedding & Baby, Hello, Thank You, and Sympathy/Support. All grab bags are pre-assembled, but will include a varied assortment of categories. Please note that in order to meet this discounted pricing, these cards are contained in our Black and White grab bags–not individually wrapped. 


Apparently I'm in the mood to fill up my greeting card drawer and evidently Etsy is a treasure trove for doing that. The first thing I noticed when I opened my grab bag was the amazing quality of the cards. Thick card-stock, vivid colors, and a great mix of different designs. Yet there was one downside too, namely finding a duplicate in the lot. That wouldn't be so bad if it were, say, a birthday card, but as you can see it's the one for Mother's Day. Bit of a bummer, really. Despite that, I'm more than pleased with my paper goodies!

Personal Favorite? Happy Birthday Candles Card

Are you keeping your card drawer stocked too or do you usually buy cards only when you need them? Do you prefer to send/give different cards to people or will you resort to the same design for everyone for eg Christmas? And which of the cards above do you like best?

    1. I have quite a stockpile myself and usually send out different ones too (after all - different people, different taste), though sometimes I will send out the same design for Christmas to several people as well.
