4 Materials for Your Floral Greeting Cards

What better way to spread cheer and in the warmer months than with summer-themed arts and crafts projects?

We’ve put together this buying guide of materials for floral greeting cards and crafts. These paper goods are available right here at The Paperbox, so you won’t have to go anywhere else to do your shopping.

Spring/Summer 2021 Colours

But first, let’s look at colour palettes to inspire your project. Fortunately, the people over at Pantone have shared a great selection of colour trends for spring/summer 2021 to inspire projects in fashion and interior design.

The Summer Bouquet palette is all about warm and serene hues, which clearly take inspiration from nature, while Intoxicating has classic soft pastels to add a dreamy look to your cards. These colours also serve as the perfect backdrop for text in whimsical typography.

Both palettes should add cheerfulness and excitement to your greeting cards or crafts project this summer. Now let’s go to the exciting part — shopping.

Vellum is a versatile stationery item that can be written and printed on or layered over your greeting card to add a touch of softness and elegance. The translucent nature of vellum means it’s often associated with weddings, but it’s an item that’s ideal for just about any occasion.
