Pop-Up Holiday Cards - LovePop Giveaway

 Congratulations to Heather Sebastian, winner of the LovePop Cards Holiday Set!

I can't think of anyone who wouldn't enjoy opening a pop-up card... the unexpected surprise is enough to bring a smile to the Grinch-iest of souls. Of course Christmas and Hanukkah are still quite a few weeks away, but I hope you won't mind this introduction to a brand new line of greeting cards from a small startup called LovePop.

Pop-Up Snowflake Card - LovePop

Founders Wombi Rose and John Wise met while studying naval architecture and marine engineering in college. Led in different directions by employment after graduation, the pair reunited at Harvard Business School. A school project took them to Vietnam this past January where they were wowed by handmade three dimensional cards.

Wombi and John began brainstorming a long list of occasions and holidays that could be made even more special by the presentation of a pop-up card. Encouraged by the positive effect that such intricate cards had on family and friends, they began developing a laser cut line of pop-up cards in earnest.

Each LovePop card combines paper engineering and delicate cut paper illustration. First, a prototype design is drawn and transferred into a computer to be cut with a Silhouette CAMEO® cutting machine. Once the design has been perfected, the cards are cut with a laser cutter, assembled, and glued by hand in Vietnam. There is even an option to have a personalized, handwritten note added to the card before it is mailed to the recipient.

Another nice thing about a pop-up card is that it is typically displayed far longer than an ordinary greeting card would be - a warm reminder of the sender. And while a Holiday LovePop card might well be put away with the decorations in January, chances are excellent it will be displayed for years to come. Of course once the holidays are over, the mantel doesn't have to stay LovePop-free for long... there's Valentine's Day and many other occasions that are deserving of a special card. You can see an array of options on the LovePop website.

The LovePop Holiday collection is only available via Kickstarter at this time; a campaign is underway through November 8th. To help spread the word, LovePop has offered to send a set of three cards ($30 value) - Snowflake, Winter Cabin, and Christmas Tree - to one lucky commenter with a U.S. mailing address.
