About

Turning Seeds and Natural Items into Handmade Favours and Greeting Cards

In 2009, I started making Greeting Cards with Seeds and Natural Gifts and taking them to Art and Craft shows.

Then in 2010, I also attended some Seed Swaps and Potato Days around England.

Soon after, I applied to sell on Amazon - listing some of my Greeting Cards with Seeds and Natural Gifts, as well as Favours, and Greeting Cards with Seeds for Father's Day and Mother's Day.

I design each Favour and Greeting Card and research the information about each seed - how best to grow it - and some unusual facts - and then try and condense the information down into as few words as possible so it fits on the back of the card, and is still readable!

The Favours are A7 size - a small folded card. I print the Favours in my Studio - either with or without a personalised message - then cut and fold them and place each Favour inside a pretty ivory coloured Organza Gift Bag.

The Greeting Cards are A6 size and include both Growing Information and Unusual Facts / Myths about the Seed. The Greeting Cards have a matching envelope - eg. Cornflowers - blue envelope. The Card and the Envelope are placed inside a clear cellophane wrap.

Most of the Seeds come from a long established UK based Seed Supplier, whilst the Dried Lavender comes from my own garden. I count out all the seeds and put them inside a small transparent bag, and that completes the Favour/Greeting Card. When I get very busy I rope in my mother to help!

I aim to achieve 100% customer satisfaction - I always like to do my very best to help a customer and I try to offer the very best in customer service and to make the shopping experience as enjoyable as possible!

I also have another shop on Etsy - English Gems - where I list my handmade Cards, Gifts, Jewellery, Wall Décor and Lights - many made from recycled materials eg game pieces and maps and books. www.etsy.com/shop/EnglishGems1.

Thank you for looking at Grow Your Own Cards.
