Product Focus – Greeting Cards
There are currently twenty-eight unique designs in my greeting card range, with new ones being added all the time. All designs are taken from my bright, bold and dynamic original artwork and printed onto quality card to make a delightful and thoughtful card. They can be used for a variety of occasions such as birthday, Christmas, or as a ‘thank you’ card. You could even just send a note to a loved one to say you are thinking of them.
Each greeting card is printed onto 350gsm superior quality card, which produces striking full colour work.
They are supplied with 100gsm gummed, diamond flap, white envelopes and cellophane sleeves (if you prefer to opt out of the cello sleeve then just leave a message at checkout and we’ll ship without).
All cards are blank inside ready for your personal message.
This bright and colourful stag’s head, titled ‘Caught in the Headlights’ is a popular greeting card and really packs a punch in terms of colour palette! This card is landscape in orientation and is A5 in size.
In today’s increasingly digital world, there is something so special about receiving a hand-written and hand-delivered personal note or letter.
Cards can be sent for a variety of reasons such as a birthday, Christmas or event. You may even just want to let someone know you are thinking about them! The recent lockdowns has meant we have had to be a little more creative and thoughtful in how we stay in touch and a card landing on their doormat can really make someone’s day!
Above you can see the two different sizes available; A5 (portrait orientation in this case) and the square format measures 147mm x 147mm.
This is my current cycling range, so perfect for that cycling enthusiast in the family! Each piece is designed to capture the colour, speed and drama of road cycling. Here in Yorkshire is a very popular cycling location with plenty of hills to get stuck into, complimented by breathtaking views. Probably best to bring your cagoule though!
The top blue image and the red/blue and yellow card on the bottom right were both captured in soft pastels, with bold lines, vibrant colours and soft blending.
The abstracted time-trial cyclist on the bottom left was created with acrylic paint on canvas.
All of these images are also available as fine art prints
I have a large range of animal-themed cards, with plenty of my favourite hares of course! These are some of my most popular images and are suitable for a wide-range of occasions.
Sometimes the cards are bought with the intention of framing them which is a wonderful idea. Please note though, the printing process on cards is entirely different to that of fine art prints and your card will fade with time and also the print quality and colour matching is not the same.
The image seen here is ‘Poppy Hare‘ on an A5 gift card in portrait orientation.
Several of my cards lend themselves perfectly as Christmas cards and my robins are a very popular design during the festive season. Robins are one of my favourite birds (along with owls, blackbirds and blue tits!) and are enduringly popular on Christmas card designs.
Here we have fat, fluffy little robin and a more traditional snowy robin. Both are extremely popular cards.
Each robin card is 147 x 147mm
Both are also available as a fine art print
Another hugely popular card (and print) at Christmas-time is ‘Snowfall Hare‘ and this is an A5 card in portrait orientation.
This image is from an original oil on linen canvas with ‘splatters’ of paint in soft white and blues to depict the falling snow.
Have you noticed how the shadows on the snow where the hare is sitting are blue-toned? I love that!
There are also two charity cards to choose from. These paintings were both created during the pandemic lockdowns and the original pieces are donated to the hospital trust where I work as a nurse.
Proceeds from the sale of these cards and prints all go to the charities. Sales of ‘Sending Hope’ go to the Therapeutic Care Team at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and proceeds from the sale of ‘Sending Love’ go jointly to ‘Friends of the Friarage Hospital‘ and Herriot Hospice Homecare.
So, why not stock up on your favourite cards and send a ‘smile in an envelope’ to someone special. I don’t think they will be disappointed.
Also, keep an eye out for new designs coming into the range. Expect more cycling, more birds, more animals……and probably more hares!
I was recently asked to create a video to support wellbeing at work. Learning a new skill, and being creative, are excellent ways to help you unwind and relax. I thought I would share the video here so you can take a look and perhaps have a go. I've tried to provide a...
After the disappointment of cancelled events in 2020 (no explanation required as to the reason for this!) it felt wonderful to be back at an art fair and my first experience of the very well respected and established 'Art in the Pen'. This event is held annually at...
Although I usually take my sketchbook on holiday, I don't always get much chance to sketch and draw as we tend to be rather active when we're away. However, it's surprising what you can achieve with a quiet five minutes here and there. A recent family trip to the...
I am thrilled to be working with Diamond Art Studio UK Ltd as a new licensed artist for their fantastic diamond paintings. I must confess, when the company first approached me about licensing artwork I wasn't familiar with diamond painting. A quick Google and YouTube...
