Buttercups Cards - Creative, Visionary Wedding Stationery!
Many people earn a steady wage from doing an okay job, and there’s nothing wrong with that at all; Okays good, but when you are blessed with the natural creative vision possessed by Sophie, founder of www.buttercupscards.co.uk, you have the talents to follow your dreams – And that’s exactly what Sophie has done! Let’s therefore explore the World of Buttercups Cards in more detail: -
Q - Hi Sophie, please tell us the history of Buttercups Cards? – When and how it started etc.
Hi! I Have always loved being creative, Buttercups Cards began with me making and selling handmade cards after I had seen a few I thought that could be my new creative outlet. It worked well but after a year or so I wanted to reach higher goals, so when a lady asked me about wedding invitations I jumped at the chance and I haven't looked back since. Earlier this year I left my part time job to do this full time and it's going from strength to strength.
Q - What range of wedding products do you supply?
Buttercups Cards can create pretty much anything wedding related as long as it's paper or card! From Save the Dates and Invitations with all the little extras to all your 'on the day' Stationery including favour boxes, children's activity boxes, and memorial or informative signs!
Q - Of all your wedding products, which one is your particular favourite and why?
This is a tough question! I think I will say a table plan, there's nothing quite like a beautifully framed table plan with ribbon, lace and pretty embellishments for all the guests to see as they walk in the room.
Q - What sets Buttercups Cards apart from the competition?
I like to think it's because my designs are so varied. I do heavily embellished traditional style pocketfolds to modern typography style wedding invitations. One of my favourite things to do is to come up with new styles and designs, so I hope that shows in my work and stands out from others who have many a same design just varying in slightly different components.
Q - With regard to stationery, what advice would you give to couples planning their wedding?
Plan early, ask for samples and use a reputable seller. There are SO many people on facebook making wedding invitations for such a small amount only to be bitterly disappointed with what they receive and end up paying out again. If it sounds too good to be true - it probably is!
Q - Past or present, who in your opinion is the most successful person?
This is another tricky question. I actually think many people in my life are successful, my fiancé, my Mum, my Dad, a lot of my friends! I think anyone who does what they love are the most successful people in life.
Sophie’s elegant wedding stationery displays a vision reminiscent of a theory by James Broughton, an American poet who once said “The only limits are, as always, those of vision.” Well based on that theory, the success of Buttercups Cards is unlimited!
