Hipster Cakes and Sweets Waiting for the L Train

Say “Thanks” or “Happy Birthday!” with a ten-pack of these cards from Etsy.

This is a boxed set of 10 cards and envelopes. It’s all one design: Hipster Cakes and sweets waiting for the L Train in NYC! They come in a clear and sturdy box. Each card is an A2 size (4.24 x 5.5) which is horizontally aligned, with a top tent-fold. A very nice gift item!
