A handmade pop-up card featuring my pencil & watercolour drawing of a Clouded Yellow butterfly. The Clouded Yellow is always such a pretty treat to spot in the garden in the summertime.
The butterfly’s wings are cut out by hand and the antennae & title are added in pencil. The handmade elements of this card make it really special.
Send the card flat and then the lucky recipient will be delighted to discover that if they just gently pull up the wings of the butterfly it becomes 3D. It really does look like a butterfly is sitting on the card.
This delicate, pretty card is ideal for any occasion: birthdays, sympathy, a wedding, or just to say hello. It is blank inside for your own message.
The card comes with a kraft brown envelope. It is packaged in a 100% biodegradable cellophane to keep it safe for posting (you can even pop the cellophane in the compost bin!).
The folded card is A6 size: roughly 160mm x 120mm.
ABOUT OUR CARDS
The pop-up cards are designed, printed and hand-assembled in my garden studio in the Scottish Borders. The original drawings are done in pencil & watercolour. The designs are inspired by the rich variety of the British countryside. We believe it is important that people feel connected with the fields, hedgerows and woodlands around them. Only by loving and enjoying the countryside can we learn to care for it.
We love that when someone sends a card they are letting that person know they are valued. We like to imagine posties collecting and delivering the cards, and the journey the cards make by van and air and foot, landing on someone’s front door mat and making that person’s day. Are you planning on sending this card to someone special? Let us know when you leave a review!
We are committed to finding environmentally responsible packaging solutions. Where possible, we use 100% biodegradable cellophane sleeves made from cornstarch. They are compostable – you can pop them in the compost bin or they will break down quickly in landfill. In addition, we try to use paper-based packing tapes, and recycled cardboard envelopes and boxes wherever possible. This is a process we are committed to continuing with in order to reduce our impact on this beautiful planet. If you would like your card, or any other product, to be sent without a protective cellophane then just leave us a note at the check out.
