Plantable birthday card
Plantable birthday card made from pre consumer cotton and recycled paper.
This card will feel like sturdy card and linen with a grainy texture as it contains native UK wildflower seeds which the bees and butterflies will love in the summer months. I have printed my own watercolour design onto the card and if you wish, I can send this direct to the recipient with a handwritten message inside. Personalisation at no extra cost. The envelope is made from 100% recycled paper and card so it is also compostable, biodegradable and great for our environment.
I do not use cellophane in my card packaging as I like to reduce plastic waste. I do however package all of my cards in a card backed "do not bend" envelope to ensure that it arrives safely and isn't creased.
Planting the card: The card can be torn up and planted in some potting soil or compost. Tear it up into small pieces, water well and cover lightly with soil. You can plant in a border, your lawn or a pot that gets plenty of sunlight. Please respect the ecosystems around you and do not plant these cards in the wild. If you don't want to do this, you can also compost the card as it will add valuable nutrients to your home made compost. This card measures A6 which is roughly 16cm long and 14cm wide. Next day dispatch with Royal Mail 2nd class as standard for all UK orders. Reasonable postage to international destinations.
