Simone Keogh (@keep_me_cards)
Keep Me Cards is a Greeting Card company. Cards are handcrafted using high quality paper and items collected from around the world such as beads from Costa Rica, lace from France, and ribbon from Switzerland to name just a few. Each card comes with an information note describing where specific items are from for the recipient. You can gift your Greeting card as a keepsake with a picture frame in a light or dark colour and to make the occasion extra special you can gift your card and frame in a Keep Me Cards gift box.
I have always made Greeting Cards for friends and family but during lockdown 2020 I decided to create a business and share my passion for Greeting Cards.
I take inspiration from many places when I travel such as colours, shapes and designs. In my craft studio I am surrounded by all the lovely items I collect and from there the creations take shape inspired by a material, colour or theme.
Cards have always held importance to me even from a child. It's a very personal way to tell someone you love that you are thinking of them and to pass that special message on. Keepsakes have always meant a lot to me with family living in different parts of the world. It's a way to stay connected to the ones you love when they are so far away. It's also a way to mark a special occasion and keep that memory living on every time you see that keepsake.
I wish for Keep Me Cards to be a part of peoples Birthdays, Milestones, Wedding Anniversaries, and special moments in their life. I hope the joy I feel in creating their Greeting Card is passed onto their loved one or friend and brings some joy and happiness to them too.
Class Craic (@classcraicdxb)
I am originally from Northern Ireland and love the craic (an Irish word for a good time) hence the name ‘Class Craic’. I moved to Dubai in 2018 as a teacher and I love living and working here. As much as I love teaching, I always wanted to have a little business as a creative outlet. During the Summer when I had more time on my hands, I decided to design and create greeting cards with some Dubai based jokes and other puns to connect with others who have a good sense of humour and appreciate banter. I myself, love a little bit of sarcasm and humour and realized that this was something that was needed in the greeting card sector in Dubai.
It is almost impossible to find decent, funny, relevant and affordable greeting cards in Dubai. The main selling point is same day delivery all across the UAE, which is something that is unique to only Class Craic Greeting.
For me, a greeting card really shows that you care. Receiving any greeting card will lift your spirits but a funny one can really make you happy and I think that’s so important in life, especially now.
I am excited to continue creating more greeting cards and being part of people’s special occasions. I am excited and grateful to be working with The Sandpit Greetings Co and other likeminded, creative individuals. I hope my greeting cards make you smile!
Oryx Crafts (@oryxcrafts)
Oryx Crafts is a small home business owned by a Pakistani artist, having a collection of handmade Greeting cards, that focus on adding a unique personal touch to every occasion. The cards can be customized, and have the option of adding a personal message inside.
I believe handmade Greeting cards have an intimacy factor to them that serves as a memory for years to come. That's why I have always loved making my own cards for family and friends. This year, I decided to share the love forward, by turning it from just a hobby to a small home business, with a goal of reviving the tradition of sending hand written cards. I hope that my work will help everyone make their loved ones feel special and cherished.
