Handmade Greetings Cards - Greeting Cards For All Occasions

Welcome To My Squidoo Lens Handmade Greeting Cards

I want to tell you why I started selling Five Dollar Shake! Firstly I just love handmade greeting cards. I went to the local high street as I wanted to buy a birthday card for someone special. I went in to several greeting cards shops on the high street and I just felt that they were really basic and not very inspiring! Especially the money they wanted to charge me. So I went to a greeting cards trade fair. I came across a stand called Five dollar shake! Straight away I knew that they were beautifully made and enormous detail. So I decided to stock the cards on my greeting cards website. And now they are absolute top selling greeting cards. I also now sell the greeting cards worldwide.

      Great Lens. These cards are beautiful and i have to agree with you that the card shops these days charge far too much for greeting cards that are so basic and boring, i could just make these myself at home, for the cost of a postage stamp. I love what you are tring to do and i wish you lots of success.
