Kirsty Hume collaborates with Cocodot on virtual stationary
Celebrities have their manicured hands in all sorts of collaborations these days. But it's been a while since we've seen a celeb partnership as charming as Kirsty Hume's line of virtual greeting cards for online stationary company Cocodot.com.
The statuesque Scottish model, who's hitched to actor and musician Donovan Leitch, posed for images for the cards (birthday invites and blank, all-occasion notes) with her 7-year-old daughter, Violet.
Getting in the birthday spirit was no big challenge for Hume, who said she thrills at planning her kiddo's birthday parties.
"I love making the day special for her," she added. "It brings back memories of my own birthday parties that my mum planned for me. We planned a bunny birthday for Violet's fifth birthday and had someone come with all different types of rabbits for the kids to pet. And Violet got to keep two baby bunnies at the end of the party. ... I cut bunny shapes out of cardboard and covered them in pastel glitter and made a garland with them in our dining room." It's no wonder the photos in Hume's collection boast a whimsical, homespun vibe.
Cocodot has always been a pay service, but users can get a free month of online cards and invitations in a promotion currently running on the site. Even better, if you key in the promotional code "EmilyGreen," you'll get a full year of cheeky/glamorous/stylish cards for free.
