I love these plantable wildflower cards so much and they have been so popular this year as they are a gift as well as a card and a lovely reminder of friendship through flowers. At a time when so many of us can’t see our loved ones in person, these cards are extra special. I’ve always felt bad about throwing cards away and I have drawers full of old cards that I can’t bear to get rid of, so the idea of enjoying a card and then being able to grow wildflowers from it, is brilliant! These beautiful cards by Sophie are made from 100% recycled materials which are embedded with 11 varieties of British perennial wildflowers and grass seed. Once your loved one has enjoyed your Christmas message, they can plant the card in February and grow wildflowers! There are 3 beautiful festive designs to choose from – a classic green and red wreath and a lovely bright blue bauble, both with the words Merry Christmas on the front, or my favourite one which is beautiful Christmas tree design with the words “Christmas comes and Christmas goes. Plant this card in Spring and watch it grow” on the front. All cards are blank on the inside for your own message.
The images are drawn and hand painted by Sophie with watercolours and altered using photoshop to make bright illustrations. The cards are printed with edible inks so the inks don’t harm the soil once planted. Full instructions are on the back of the card.
