Gold butterfly thank you notes

I found this lovely Thank You note card set in Barnes and Noble. It looked very nice in the package.. a tasteful Thank You note and monarch butterfly on linen.. and for a great price too! Only $8.99 for 14 cards!

I had very high hopes for it!

I love the little butterfly and the small Thank You font. It’s very elegant!

Unfortunately the envelope paper is not up to standard. I wrote a name in gold and already it was bleeding through the paper. Not very nice when your recipient pulls out the card..

The actual paper of the note card isn’t much either. You know how sometimes a paper can inspired good calligraphy? This one doesn’t.

Not bad for $8.99 but not for calligraphy.
