My mother used to own a stationery store, so I always pay special attention to the cards I send her for Mother’s Day, etc., with the idea that she would particularly appreciate a good choice. I chose this card set due to its uncommon envelopes, which were shiny gold — different enough to be noticed without seeming hard to write on and mail. I think it’s interesting that the color gold can suggest luxury even when it’s obvious that the product contains no real gold, and in this cases like this one, is very inexpensive.
