The summer is birthday season in my family, with what seems like every relative born in these few months. Inevitably, I finish up wrapping a gift only to realize I forgot a card. My go-to has always been Paperless Post to send last-minute digital greetings, but the the other day when I was browsing their site, I realized they now offer cards for all occasions from Emily McDowell, one of our favorite artists, and I was thrilled.

You’ll find cards for every single occasion (some you might not have even thought of), with Emily’s incredible designs always managing to capture just what we want to say, silly or serious, in a tone that is always spot-on. And being able to send them via Paperless Post as an e-card, or, yes a real card (did you know that you can do that too?), makes it so easy.

And a little side note: We also had some fun browsing through her Valentine’s cards. Go ahead and send one to your main squeeze as a “just because” card this time of year. It could make for a fun weekend. Ahem. 

You can find Emily McDowell’s awesome greeting cards at her Etsy shop, or now on Paperless Post. Yay!
