Plantable Christmas Card - Merry Christmas
This Christmas card is for life, not just for Christmas! It is made from 100% recycled materials and embedded with 11 varieties of British perennial wildflowers and grass seed. Once your loved one has enjoyed the lovely message you have sent them, they can plant the card afterwards to grow a patch of wildflowers! It’s good for us and it’s great for the bees too.
The image is drawn with black ink and painted by me with watercolours and altered using photoshop to create bright illustrations. Grown best in spring, full instructions are on the back of the card.
These are artisan products and like us, have quirks and differences. The colour may vary from card to card, so please be accepting of their individuality.
Size (folded): A6 – 148 x 105 mm (5.8 x 4.1 inches)
Comes with a brown recycled paper envelope.
About Loop Loop
My name’s Sophie and I’m the Founder of Loop Loop.
I consider myself a maker and have always loved creating things. I’ve made handmade cards for my loved ones for years and one day I thought about scaling up, but I wanted to do so in a specific way. I’m passionate about sustainability and I wanted to create something that had a positive impact on the planet. Then I came across the concept of plantable cards! Bingo
I absolutely love painting and this means I get to do something I love in a sustainable way. Loop Loop is all about taking old things and looping them back round into a new existence. When I started this is in September 2018, I intended to do a few plantable cards and then move on to a new medium, as i get bored quite easily, but I haven’t yet had time!
I like working with old fabric and marbling things, so I would like to experiment with this when I have the time… Watch this space.
