Greencard Designs

Greetings!  My name is Katherine Kelly and I’m the style and sense of humor behind Greencard Designs by Katherine Kelly.  I started designing custom made invitations and paper goods for my wedding; and since then, friends and family coaxed me into turning it into a “professional” hobby.
My style is best described as clever, contemporary, and “clean”.  I love bold colors, great patterns, very clean and modern designs, with a little vintage influence.  I really enjoy using my sense of humor.  I’m of Irish decent (hence greencard), which is where I believe I get my sense of wit and “cheek”.  I love creating cards and invitations for myself and clients that incorporate great design and clever wording which add to the overall impression of the greeting.  My “signature” greetings are those with lined envelopes, and cards which have been hand stamped and embossed to create great dimension and texture.
I work at home in Chicago, IL, with the unconditional support and love of my husband.  We live in a little condo with a big deck which I’m afraid my stock of paper and cards may force me to move my desk outside some day!
I have a shop at etsy which features greeting cards, custom designed stationery, and occasional cards.  Please visit it at  My online portfolio of custom designed invitations and announcements is at  My first love of paper goods is creating custom designed invitations for people who enjoy hand made stationery and want their greeting to be as special as their event.

Please participate in the giveaway, and you can win a pack of my favorite “Secret Santa” cards.
