Love and Romance

Send a little love message to someone special

Send a card that reveals a blank insert to write a personalised keepsake message (removable).

You can also slot in a pre purchased gift card.

Ideal for Valentines Day or wedding anniversaries.

Size: A6, white envelope. A very sturdy card which can also be used as a money wallet.

Open up the card (the middle flips over) to reveal a blank insert or remove the insert and attach a gift card. You can use the blank insert to:

  • write your personal message
  • add a romantic message/poem/DIY voucher/promise that can be removed and kept by the recipient. (The recipient can display the card without the embarrassment factor!)
  • Use as an invitation
  • Say thank you

Charity Christmas Cards

A minimum of 25% of the price of my cards goes to the 3 charities I’m fundraising for.

The actual figure is calculated per card and includes 100% of the card profit (eg the card selling price minus Etsy fees and materials).

Exclusive loveMONEY research has found some shops and supermarkets are donating as little as 10% from the sale of charity Christmas cards.

Two new glowing lantern Christmas cards

There are 4 steps to making this card which takes me a couple of days to complete. I love deep blue and metallic copper which give this one a Moroccan feel to it. The Christmas card is 6×6 inches so the illumination area is very large.

I use a flickering soft orange battery tea-light to illuminate the cards.

Lantern / glowing Christmas cards

Lantern cards are made by adding a middle layer of parchment to the card, forming an opaque window.

Each takes a few days to make and can involve glazing the window such as the nativity stained glass card.

Some cards have a middle layer of transparency for a translucent effect.

A battery powered tea light will give a gentle flickering glow to the card.

You can purchase my Lantern cards on Etsy.

Charity Christmas Cards – Celtic Winter

Some new designs this year include the magical Celtic Winter range.

The wooden snowflake design is a one-time only but there will be approximately 5 poinsettia cards of this type for sale in ohhowlovelygifts. They are £3.30 and can be sent to the UK or USA. A charity card with high donation value.

These cards are foiled with a Celtic knot cut through – so you can make them glow if you place a battery powered tea light inside.

Visit my shop to see full details.

Each is handmade to my own design – so if you see another like it any other shop it’s a reproduction! These are high quality cards – no flopping around and falling over.

As always, all profits after material costs and Etsy fees go to the three Muscular Dystrophy charities I am fundraising for. Full details are in my Etsy shop or on this website.

Retro / Geek / Sci-Fy


I have a retro / geek / sci-fy section in my shop where you will find cards for gamers and gift card holders which make great party invitations for gaming parties.

Special occasion handmade greeting cards – garage workshop and vintage transport.


These cards are multi textured and dimensional on the theme of vintage transport, Victorian England and workshop/tools/industry.
I use metallic waxes to guild the embellishments so they take on an aged and vintage look. 

I can also do other Victorian themes such as  travel, steam engines and vintage cycles.

These cards are 6×6 inches and available in my shop Ohhowlovelygifts on Etsy
