New Birthday Ecard!

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

I’m delighted to announce that we have a new birthday ecard on the Katie’s Cards website. This ecard features an explorer who, whilst trekking through the jungle, stumbles upon some ancient ruins. Engraved within the stone of the ruins is a ‘happy birthday’ message.

Whilst we hope this birthday ecard will appeal to all our members, part of the reason we created this ecard was to respond to customers’ requests for more ecards that are suitable to send to your husbands, brothers, fathers and sons. We revealed some early pencil sketches of this birthday ecard on the blog a few days ago and the card is now ready for you to send here on the Katie’s Cards website.

This card is part of a large collection of birthday e cards on the Katie’s Cards website and we’re always trying to think of fun and creative ideas for new cards.

New ‘Belated Birthday’ Ecard

Friday, May 31st, 2013

You might remember that earlier in the month we gave you a behind-the-scenes peek at the making of one of our ecards. We’re now delighted to reveal that the ‘belated birthday’ ecard is up on the Katie’s Cards website. It’s the first ‘belated birthday’ ecard we’ve made and we hope that the humour of the ecard soothes any bad feelings if you’ve forgotten an important date…

All our birthday ecards can be pre-scheduled ahead of time so, technically, there shouldn’t be a reason to miss anyone’s birthday ever again! If it does happen, however, at least this ecard will be there to save the day…

It’s Tulip Day!

Monday, May 13th, 2013

Today is National Tulip Day! I love tulips – they’re so bright and bold and come in so many different colours and shapes. Did you know that there are over 3,000 different types?! This image of tulip fields in the Netherlands is so inspiring, just look at those colours!

Birthday Flowers Ecard

Since it’s Tulip Day, we thought it fitting that our ‘ecard of the day’ includes some of these fabulous flowers. Click on the image above to be taken to our website where you can watch the floral letters bloom and grow into a happy birthday message…

Who knew?

Sunday, April 14th, 2013

Since we’re often trying to devise new birthday ecard designs, we thought it would be fun to try to unearth some lesser known birthday facts to inspire us …

– Though, to me, it always seems like there are tonnes of birthdays in March and April, about 9% of all people celebrate their birthdays in August, making it the month with the highest birth rate! It is followed by July and September.

– Allegedly, the date on which the least number of people are born is the 22nd of May.

– In contrast, the highest number of people are born on the 5th October … 9 months after New Year’s Eve.

– Around eighteen million people sing the ‘Happy Birthday’ song every day (though I’m not sure how anyone could work this out!)

Do you have any surprising birthday facts that you’d like to share with us? If so, comment under this post or email your suggestions to katie@katiescards.com. If you know anyone who has a birthday coming up, why not include one of these fun facts in their ecard?

Fun April Facts

Saturday, April 13th, 2013

We’re midway through the month now but we thought we’d share some of our fun April facts with you! The root of this word lies in the Latin verb ‘Aperire’ which means ‘to open’ because it’s (usually) the time of year when flowers bloom, animals emerge from hibernation and birds fly the nest…There always seem to be tonnes of birthdays in April so here are a few fun facts for those born this month:

– The birthstone is the diamond.

– The April flower is the beautiful sweetpea.

– Those born this month are either Aries (March 21st – April 20th) or Taurus (April 21st – May 20th).

– If you’re born this month you may share a birthday with Emma Thompson (15th), Kofi Annan (8th) or the Queen (21st).

There always seem to be lots of birthdays in March and April and we have a selection of beautiful birthday ecards which epitomise the Springtime feeling of this time of year.
