Our Story


Our Story


NestingCards(R)  was born because our fournder couldn’t find unique ways to share messages of inspiration, and special notes of wisdom. She wanted the words themselves to feel like a gift and keepsake. So she started bundling cards, revealing new notes of milestones and shared memories. Best of all, recipients of nested cards found joy with each additional card. Each nested card became a keepsake set.  

NestingCards has the mission of: Spreading joy and contentment through handmade messages and gifts nested in each artist's integrity and passion.

NestingCards includes artists discovered by founder Jana. Our artists are award-winning; have appeared on television; shown in galleries from coast to coast; and are a pleasure to work with every step of the way. "Diva" is not allowed onto the team. The NestMakers artists are team players, collaborators, and continuous learners who refine their skills day-over-day.

Jana began gifting nested cards in the early 2000s. Recipients were so delighted with their card nests that was born to showcase the cards and the works of designers, master-crafts-people, custom-makers, and artists across a multitude of mediums.

 In 2020, NestingCards received a trademark from the U.S. Patent office.

NestingCards supports: Our founder's passion for creating a sense of home, for built environments (see her book Building Community in Buildings), and for the preservation of buildings led to selection of a national non-profit that saves historic buildings: NestingCards supports the preservation of built spaces by annually donating 10% of profits to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. 


More about The Beginning: 

Like the nesting-dolls of our childhood, these cards tuck inside of each other for mailing all seven at once. Or, mail them one at a time. Create a treasure hunt - one card at a time. Give encouragement to someone on a trip or at camp - one day (card) at a time. Enclose all seven with a gift-card in the smallest envelope. Gift them. Frame them. Ideas abound.

Born of card-gifting decades, NestingCards can be sent individually, in sets, or all seven at once. Each NestingCard is a work of art. Miriam Woito designed this first set and has made the original art available to NestingCards shoppers too. Keep the cards and hang or frame them. Gift the cards - unused to someone else. Create a gift and send the cards yourself. The ideas are endless. 

Includes: Seven cards (blank inside) and seven matching envelopes.
