One of my favourite things about creating and designing stationery is sourcing unusual, interesting and beautiful things to use for our cards. I was very lucky to recently find these gorgeous vintage buttons - they are from Argentina and are dated from the early 1940s and in amazing condition - much more beautiful than a mere pic on the blog can show! We're going to put them on a new range of ready-made greetings cards, and they will soon be on sale online, with a limited number on sale at the Vintage Bridal Fair in Belfast on 13th June.

We're busy spreading the word about Ireland's first Vintage Bridal Fair in Belfast this June (details in the previous post) and how excited we are to be taking part in it.

After years of daydreaming followed by months of planning and hard work, Arbee Cards is ready to launch itself on the world - so we'd like to say a very big smiley hello!
We're a stationery company with a difference - we work with all styles, all budgets and all events, specialising in custom-made/bespoke stationery at affordable prices. Each design is inspired by and created especially for a client, always remaining their individual special design. Many 'bespoke' invitations don't really do what they say on the tin - it's often just changing the colour or names on a card - we're much more personal (and fab) than that!
The Arbee Cards website is not quite ready yet (we're perfectionists!) but it'll hopefully be up and running in a week or two. Watch this space...
But we have a date for your diary already - we'll be at Northern Ireland's first ever Vintage Bridal Fair on Sunday 13th June, 2010 at the beautiful Malone House in Belfast, from 12 - 5pm. You can find out more about it at www.decadencevintageclothing.co.uk/bridal.html
See you there!
