This lovely card features my pencil drawing of a very old tree, branches spread wide. This tree is host to a vast ecosystem of plants, insects, birds and animals. There’s even a secret squirrel hidden on the trunk. The tree is a favourite which we pass while walking at Harestanes (a country park) here in the Scottish Borders.
The image is printed onto recycled brown kraft card. The design wraps-around both sides of the card. The image is printed across the fold.
There’s something very satisfying about the blank ink on the brown card. As the kraft card is a recycled product there may be slight variations in the colour of the card.
The card is blank inside for your own message.
The folded card is A6 size: 160mm x 120mm. It comes with a nice quality kraft brown envelope. It is packaged in a 100% biodegradable cellophane to keep it safe for posting. 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.
You can also find the Under This Old Tree drawing as a limited edition print 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.
