I love everything about these cards by Scottish artist Hannah Longmuir. The beautiful design is printed across the entire card to wrap around and it comes with such a gorgeous coral lined envelope!
The ‘Fungi Forest’ drawing was inspired by the amazing display of fungi that pops up in the woodland round Hannah’s house in the autumn. It features a delighted little mouse enjoying life in his forest of fungi. Fungi form one of the natural world’s largest kingdoms. The health of the planet’s ecosystems depend on the job done by the complex web of fungi under the ground. The extraordinary variety of mushrooms that you see are the temporary above-ground fruits. The mushrooms in this drawing are Ringless Honey Mushrooms.
The design is printed across the fold and wraps around the card.
Size: 15xm x 30cm (or 15cm square when folded)
Each one comes with kraft envelope with a fabulous coral-coloured liner (I love these envelopes!).
This card is one of a collection of cards that Hannah created called ‘A Garden for Wildlife…’ as a tribute to her parents who were both excellent gardeners and created little wildlife havens in their gardens. Every card sold helps to raise money for the ongoing work of her local Macmillan Centre where her mum was cared for for many years. These cards are designed, manufactured and packaged by hand in the UK. They are printed on FSC approved card stock sourced from sustainable mixed forests. The original drawings are done in pencil & watercolour. The designs are inspired by the rich variety of the British countryside. Hannah is passionate about helping people to feel connected with the fields, hedgerows and woodlands around them, as it’s only by loving and enjoying the countryside can we learn to care for it.
