This simple, sweet card features a drawing of baby swallows all tightly packed into a nest. There’s five little swallow chicks in the nest! The card also has the words ‘Brand New’ and a note saying [The world just got a bit lovelier] on the front. It would be the perfect card to send to welcome a new baby into the world.
The drawing is of the swallows nest at our back door when we lived at Teapot Street. We loved to watch them grow and fledge every summer. I wrote a blog-diary about the swallow babies last summer. You can read it here.
The card is blank inside for your own message.
It is printed on lovely quality card, and comes with a nice white envelope. It is packaged in a biodegradable cellophane envelope 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.
Size: The folded card is A6 size: 160mm x 120mm

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!
