Multilingual cards *GIVEAWAY* ends July 23rd!

Are you a multilingual, intercultural family? Did you want to buy beautiful cards for your own wedding invitations/birth announcements/thank-you cards but couldn't find any?

Enter Annabelle. Annabelle was already kind enough to let me share my story on her blog, Gato&Canard. Not only is she a blogger and researcher in languages, but she is also a very talented craftswoman. Inspired by her own wedding a few years back, she decided to start making multilingual wedding invitations.

Her cards are both multilingual and eco-friendly. I loved her simple, thoughtful designs so much that I ordered my own business cards with her. I can’t wait for them to arrive!

I asked Annabelle whether she would be willing to send me some of her designs as give-away prizes. She kindly accepted my offer! So, I am very proud to present to you 3 sets of beautiful postcards. All of them are blank so you can write your message yourself. You can find 2 of the 3 designs here:

For the third set, Annabelle cooperated with MotherTongues® to create thoughtful postcards with untranslatable words on them! And if there is ever an untranslatable word in Dutch, it’s gezellig. You can find the gezellig cards here

Personally, I think Annabelle’s paper designs are pretty gezellig! And now they can be yours, too!

To enter, please answer this question: Were you ever in need of multilingual cards? Why? Why not?

This give-away will run for two weeks, till July 23rd. The winner will be picked by random using Random.org. You can start commenting now!

  1. Well first let me congratulate you with your blog's birthday, your birthday and your daughter's! Party time. I'm one of the people who enjoys reading your stories. We need more multicultural stories just like we need more multilingual cards! I often buy blank cards so I can write in Dutch, Frisian or English on them. By the way my new challenge this year is to learn Indonesian. So I will need the cards to write something in Indonesian on them.

  2. Congratulations to your blog's first year! Well done! Well, I would have appreciated multilingual cards for the birth announcements of my chidlren, my wedding announcement, several thank you cards throughout the year. But the range of texts would be huge! For every occasion: that's a challenge.

  3. I have family in Germany so these would come in handy. Also, I have friends in Sweden, Greece and Belgium so there would be lots of uses for the cards. Thanks for the nice giveaway.

  4. I'm American, my husband is Italian and our children think they are Dutch. Multilingual is the norm in our house. I positively love the idea behind these cards and have a hard time thinking of a time when they wouldn't come in handy. What a great giveaway - can't wait to see who wins! Thanks for sharing this product with us.

  5. I'm an American married to a Brazilian so I made bilingual wedding invitations. I could have used multilingual cards for thank-you cards (both for our wedding and our baby showers) and know I could use them again for similar events.

    I love your blog by the way :).

  6. What lovely cards. I made my own wedding invitations and birth cards for my daughter as I needed them in 3 languages!
    Happy birthday to the blog by the way too!

  7. Olga, many thanks for the invitation! We are an international family: russian-german with two children. To this moment we have friends all over the world. Vor our wedding invitations, birth announsments and so on we created our own cards. But I found Annabells ideas are very nice!

  8. i have friends all over the world, so i'm sure i could use them!! they are lovely!

  9. Really different!

  10. I would need multilingual cards for my multilingual garden design enterprise! I would also like them just to show off a little.

  16. Minimize the particular plastic material bedding directly into individual greeting cards using a well-defined cutter machine or even a knife along with leader. Plastic card printing Operate piece by piece along with very carefully to make sure that the reducing can be smooth along with straight.
