This beautiful cow parsley greeting card shows the plants wildflowers that grow wild all across Britain. I simply adore seeing them in hedgerows and in the woods when walking the dog. To me, it’s not summer without cow parsley. So because Cow Parsley is one of my all-time favourite wildflowers I just can’t resist making cyanotypes from them. Naturally, I also needed to put one of those designs onto a greeting card.
What size are the greeting cards?
This Cow Parsley Greeting Card measures 150 x 150 mm, is made from 300 gsm card stock and is blank inside. The front of the card features a print of an original artwork by Mara Louvain of Alchemi Art. All our cards come with a plain white envelope and are packaged in a recyclable cello bag.

What is a cyanotype?
I love working with the old Victorian photographic processes and one of my favourites is the cyanotype which has a distinctive blue and white colour. If you would like to learn more about the process then check out these articles here on the website. Cyanotype Art and the Cyanotype Process. How to make a cyanotype tutorial. Inspired by Anna Atkins.
What does FSC mean on a greeting card?
