A rainbow of ice cream swirled to a sparkling perfection. An orange koi shimmering in a clear-water pond. A dazzling hot air balloon preparing to lift off toward the clouds. This spring, PAPYRUS collaborated with the queen of the clutch, Judith Leiber Couture—whose bejeweled handbag designs are spotted everywhere from the red carpet and the catwalk to the political arena.
While the high-end clutches retail from $2,995 to $6,995, at PAPYRUS we’ve taken inspiration from Leiber’s fantastical clutches and pillbox designs and seamlessly spun them into a fresh line of greeting cards … without the hefty haute couture price tags.
birthdays, thank yous, weddings, and other sweet moments in life.
Our process to create these handcrafted cards involves hundreds of hand-applied gems and embellishments. The most intricate of our cards features some 1,600 gems. These miniature works of art can be tucked into a gift bag or attached to the top of a gift. Or, mat and frame a pair of cards to give as a gift themselves. On the back of each card, you’ll also find a photo of the original Judith Leiber Couture handbag from which we derived inspiration.
Speaking of inspiration, here are a few of our favorite occasion cards from the collaborative series.
