After the snow melted this spring, patch after patch of nettles started to emerge on our property. People kept telling me that these are a special delicacy and a high source of iron to be enjoyed in their early growing stage. I'm still wary of eating something that causes "sensations of mild burning for up to 30 seconds after touching." They sure are pretty to look at, though.
Unlike the real thing, these notecards don't need to be handled with gloves!
This listing is for a set of six A2 size lightweight cream-colored notecards that have been hand screenprinted from my own drawing using dark green water-based nontoxic ink. Because these cards are hand-printed, slight variations will occur in each (I promise this only adds to their charm). The cards and coordinating kraft envelopes will be sealed in cellophane and packaged in a cotton drawstring bag that has been printed with the same design. Give the entire package as a gift, or order the cards for yourself and reuse the bag as a coin bag, purse organizer, pencil case, or cotton receptacle for your own stinging foliage.
