Embossed

Stopped by this little store near my house to buy (a bag of pure) water.
The owner also stocks greeting cards - birthday cards and such - remember those?

 Remember the pure pleasure of the thick card paper and embossed pink flowers and sparkly lettering on the front of the card, to start with?

The preferably-not-icky poetry inside.

 Cards were Hallmark or budget or something nice-and-in-between;

or (starting in the late nineties) sometimes afrocentric and handmade.

Real cards were just such a great idea, before e-cards, before no-cards.

I'll have to find an excuse to give a card again sometime.
