Greeting cards

The story so far

Beautiful stationery, artwork and gifts

Gabrielle is a designer/maker creating cards, stationery, gifts and personalised work from her studio in Kent. She studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Chelsea School of Art and is very fortunate to have been taught by Quentin Blake.

She produces the work by hand, using traditional methods of illustration, modern calligraphy and lettering; a variety of dip pens, Japanese reed pens, brushes, Indian inks, water colour paints, gold paint and gold leaf. Decorative and contemporary typography is also used either on its own or mixed with the calligraphy and lettering.

Gabrielle likes to tell a story with her work, each artwork creates a mood or memory, all to be treasured. She creates products for a variety of occasions from birthdays to friendship, anniversaries, celebrations and products to show love, appreciation, inspiration and just because…

Time is taken to create the work. Gabrielle endeavours to create original and beautiful pieces that people love to give and receive.

Philosophy

Luxury and sustainability

Gabrielle is keen to support UK industry so all the print and production is done in Kent. The envelopes are made at a Yorkshire mill. They match the cards and are 150gsm, which give a feel of luxury. The card stock is FSC accredited and carries the ISO 9706 ‘long life’ certification.

The paper waste is recycled or composted. The other waste is recycled at a local steam power station, which generates electricity for the local area.

Gabrielle believes it’s possible to combine luxury with sustainability, and is proud to say her work is made in England.
