Phoenix Cards to Craft Kits and Cards
Thank you for visiting my Craft Kits and Cards website and blog. Find out what happened to Phoenix Cards and how Flamingo Paperie rose from the ashes.
History of Phoenix Cards
I had been selling Phoenix Cards for 9 years when they closed in 2017. This was primarily due to a failed and costly expansion into the US market. Thankfully Flamingo Paperie rose from the ashes and now provide the same great quality greeting cards and stationery. In 2019 they added a new range of fabulous 3D Craft Kits and more models came out this year too. The craft kits are origami based and include a Cat, Pug, Llama, Koala, Flamingo, Unicorn, T Rex and a super cute Sloth. There is also 2 flower kits (Peonies and Roses) and a decorative leaves and feathers kit.
Flamingo Paperie learnt from past mistakes and is now a thriving business with a network of around 2,000 partners. As a Pioneer Partner I am thrilled to continue bringing their unique designs of cards and stationery to your door. You will not see the cards sold in shops or on the high street. You will however see us at events and on-line. I like to use my business to help raise money for charity too.
Flamingo Paperie focus on greeting cards, wrapping paper and notecards all year round. The Autumn/Winter range also includes Charity Christmas Cards, Advent Calendars and Advent Calendar Cards. The Christmas cards this year will support three charities, Together for Short Lives, Macmillan and the Alzheimer’s Society
Flamingo Paperie products will represent at least 90% of my product range. I will also offer you a small range of complimentary products under my umbrella company Craft Kits and Cards.
The greeting cards, gift wrap sheets, tags and note cards are all produced in the UK using UK-sourced environmentally accredited materials. The cards are printed by UK companies and are cards are recyclable. Even the flitter used on our products is made from vegetable fibres and is therefore 100% biodegradable.
