Lovely cards and prints for lovely people with a "green" sensibility

I have been making personal cards for friends & family occasions for years.

After a recent sabbatical in Berlin (#AmazingCity), I came back inspired, buzzing with enthusiasm & brimming with ideas; some of which have manifested themselves as cards and prints in my Etsy shop.

I love working in a variety of media, though mostly the things available here just now are photography or print based.

I've just added some prints I made from drawings with the Paper app which I am super pleased with and I'm planning to make some collage based designs available soon too.

If you get the chance, it would be great if you would "like" my facebook page too:

At the moment, All of my cards are printed for me by a fabulous printer based down in Cornwall in the UK.

This company has excellent green credentials and all the cards are printed on carbon neutral card stock as part of the Woodland Carbon scheme.

In a word, no! :)

The name Green Card Design came from a bad pun a while back. I was making collages and collage based cards and it struck me that collage, as a medium, was very "green", recycling as it does, things that would normally be thrown away.

As I was designing cards, "Green Card Design" seemed fitting.

I like to make the products I offer as environmentally friendly as I possibly can.

Yes and no!

The photographs on my cards are currently all taken my me. This may change in the future as I come across artists, designers or photographers who would like me to develop their work as cards but currently it's all just me.

The linocuts are also drawn, handcut and hand printed by me. These prints are then scanned into my computer where I can colour them and composite them together and tindy them up if necessary. This process means that when printed, the cards retain the qualities of an original linocut print.

Finished designs are then shipped to my lovely printer down in Cornwall, who prints them and ships them back to me with envelopes and cellophane bags.

Yes, I am very happy to ship my cards anywhere in the world!
