How it All Began

Welcome to Looks Inviting. I create unique cards, fun printable art & book folding patterns, all made with lots of ❤ and ☕.

Having made wedding invitations for many years, which is where the shop name “Looks Inviting” came from, I have now turned my creativity to everyday greeting cards. I design a range of fun and stylish cards which are all handmade to order. These provide a unique way of sending someone a special message, or the boxed sets of embossed note cards make a thoughtful and practical gift. The cards are made using eco-friendly 100% recycled quality card-stock.

I have also discovered book folding and I was instantly hooked. I started producing my own designs and selling the finished books in a local craft outlet in my home town of Market Deeping on the Cambridgeshire/Lincolnshire border in the UK. Initially the patterns were created by hand, but then my husband helped me out by developing some software which does most of the work and produces very clear and professional patterns. So now I can move into the world of digital downloads and sell my unique designs to others for them to enjoy. I make one of each design, so that you can see exactly what the finished design will look like, which is a perfect excuse for spending my evenings folding books (a perfect activity for Winter in front of a log fire!). These finished books are also listed for sale, but don’t miss out, there is only one of each design!

My hand-crafted greeting cards & packs of white embossed note cards can be used individually or given as stylish, practical gifts. There are designs for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, new babies, dog lovers, chic friends, gardeners, music lovers, teachers, wine lovers, long distance relationships, Christmas, Easter …… and many more.

Printable art is an economical way to add some style to any room and makes great gifts for family & friends. Just print the file and mount it in a frame of your choice and you have an instant gift.

Are you feeling crafty? Why not try a super easy DIY book folding pattern to make & give as a unique gift. These are much easier to make than they look.
