Personalised baby themed cards

This card is a lantern card and will ‘glow’ as light passes through from a window or a battery powered tea light.

Faux silk handmade flower.

Unique keepsake for new mothers, mothers to be, baptisms, christenings, name ceremonies, adoption etc.

Personalise this style of card with your choice of words/symbols or date on the front ribbon (white satin with gold foil writing). Visit this Etsy listing for ohhowlovelygifts to buy this card.

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
