~Small Shop Spotlight~ Rational Designs

Seriously?  Just how cute are these Christmas cards already?? ;)

I was thrilled when Amy from Rational Designs came on board as one of my small shop sponsors last month.  She makes the most unique holiday cards, notecards, and stationery.  When she asked me to review any item from her shop, I was over the moon!  I immediately knew that I would have to have her Merry Christmas Ornament Notecard Set.  The "ornaments" are hand placed buttons!  You just really can't get much more cute than that. :)

I sent out my very first Rational Design card to my Christmas Cookie Swap partner.  (Pssssttt... I sent her my recipe for one of my family's favorites- Wedding Mexican Cakes, or as I used to simply call them, Snowballs.)  The cards come on a very sturdy cardstock.  No flimsy cheap paper here, folks.  Many of the details on Amy's notecards and stationery are hand stamped and hand traced.  Her eye for detail is wonderful, and guarantees you will not have a run of the mill Christmas card or notecard going out to loved ones.

Think it has to be too late to order your holiday cards now?  Well, you'd be wrong!  You can get your orders into Amy by the 13th and still have your notecards or stationery sets (these would make great gifts and stocking stuffers!) no later than the 18th.  The sooner you order, the better though. ;)

And Amy is offering my readers FREE FIRST CLASS SHIPPING on all U.S. domestic orders!!  To get the free shipping, use the coupon code FRUGAL at checkout.  OR, you can get Priority shipping for the cost of First Class shipping if you need your orders a little quicker.  To get the shipping upgrade, do NOT use the coupon code.  Instead, leave a message to Amy in Notes to Seller that you are coming to her site from Frugal Foodie Mama, and she will make sure you get the Priority shipping.  
Ready to shop??  Get on over to Rational Designs and get those holiday orders in! :)

*The opinions above are strictly my own.  Yep, all 100% me, myself, and I.  I was provided a product in exchange for an honest review, and was not compensated for my review in any other way.  If you are interested in having me review an item, please see my Sponsor Page for contact information.

  1. I received a set of Amy's note cards and they are lovely. I have gotten some great remarks from the people I have sent a note to on them.

  2. That's a great way to use of those stray buttons one gathers along the way, isn't it? Trouble is, mine tend not to be as bright and cheerful as those!

    Thanks for highlighting them, though. Isobel from www.ColdhamCuddliescalling.blogspot.com.
