CLEVELAND, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Finding the perfect card for the fashionistas in your life can be as difficult as finding the perfect shoes to match a great new outfit, but the Bonnie Marcus Collection of greeting cards allows you to celebrate those glamour girls in style.  Bonnie Marcus, a busy mother of three and former high-end event planner, designs glamorous cards for American Greetings that showcase a distinctive combination of chic fashion, luxe finishes and thoughtful sentiments.  The card aisle has never been more in vogue than with this exclusive line of stylish cards to capture all those special moments in life with a fashionable flair.

Embodying the slogan "where fashion meets paper," the Bonnie Marcus Collection has grown from homemade wedding stationery to a comprehensive line of cards for every occasion that feature her signature fashionista characters.  These original illustrated characters epitomize the woman, not unlike the Bonnie Marcus Collection customer, that gasps over a pair of fabulous peep-toe pumps, isn't afraid to sport a classic red lip, loves a great party and never forgets to celebrate her loved ones.

"We value our partnership with Bonnie Marcus," said Mary Beth Sibert, Director of Product Development at American Greetings.  "She does an excellent job of keeping her pulse on trends that our fashion-forward consumers really appreciate.  Bonnie's unique blend of slightly sassy sensibility with modern designs and warm wishes provide the perfect option within the American Greetings family of products for those stylish customers that want to share their feelings in a way that is as chic as they are."

"With my background in the fashion industry in New York City, I am thrilled to be able to bring trends from the runway to my greeting card collection for American Greetings," said Bonnie Marcus.  "From sparkling stylish designs to chic ribbon embellishments, my hand-painted cards are thought of as a fashion accessory, without the high price tag.  In our digitally-driven world, there is nothing more meaningful than a beautiful hand-written card that can be treasured for years to come."

Consumers can find the Bonnie Marcus Collection, in addition to a great selection of fresh and inspiring cards from American Greetings, at participating drug chains, grocery stores and mass retailers nationwide, as well as in American Greetings and Carlton Cards retail stores.
