I was very disappointed in the quality of the cards. They are 'shiny' and very cheap looking. They look like matte finish in the picture. There is no way the regular price on these cards could be $10. I don't even think they're worth the $4 I paid for them. I love the verse on the front of the card, but that's all I like about them. I will be donating them to the Goodwill drop box.
