Even more beautiful than in photos and the paper has a lovely texture. I love how you can mix and match the cards with a custom order. Extremely responsive customer service and super-fast shipping. A great experience.

I wanted these cards to frame for Mama's bathroom. They were perfect. Give nice color and the flowers make her happy.

Creating handmade art from nature

Ellie Roden is a long time resident of southern Vermont and a retired primary school teacher. She is an avid flower gardener and has been working with the pressed flower medium for many years.

She has always been intrigued with the beauty of flowers; pressing them is a way to preserve the beauty. Ellie is a self taught pressed flower artist, having mastered her craft through years of trial and error and careful observation.

Ellie uses only real plant materials in all of her original designs. Most flowers are from her gardens (or those of her generous neighbors) and from the woodlands and roadsides of Vermont.

Large framed pictures, cards, and bookmarks are the usual results of Ellie's designs. She also enjoys making customized invitations, announcements, cards, bookmarks, wedding and party favors.

In 2013, some of Ellie's cards were featured in a special edition of Victoria Magazine. Later that year, her cards were featured in a spring edition of Home and Garden Magazine.
Ellie’s work has been exhibited at shows and galleries throughout New England.
