‘Under This Old Tree’ is a drawing I did of a wonderful old tree that stands at the edge of a field that we often walk round. The branches spread wide, the trunk is big and solid. It is the most reassuring and friendly of sights. There’s a secret squirrel hidden in the drawing.
You can find the remains of my Old Tree at Harestanes Country Park here in the Scottish Borders. Unfortunately it was seriously damaged by strong winds a couple of years after I drew it.
The drawing is printed on a slightly textured, off-white card. The design is printed across the fold. Just fold it over to send it as a standard letter size.
This card is blank inside so you can use it year-round for any occasion, or to write a note to a friend.
The folded card is A6 size: 160mm x 120mm.
This card comes with a recycled brown envelope.
You can also find the Under This Old Tree drawing on one of my eco kraft jotters in the shop.
ABOUT THE CARDS
All the cards are designed, manufactured and packaged by hand in the UK. They are printed on FSC approved card stock which means that it is sourced from sustainable mixed forests. The original drawings are done in pencil & watercolour. The designs are inspired by the rich variety of the British countryside. I 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.
I love that when someone sends a card they are letting that person know they are valued. I 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 me know when you leave a review!
