Inspired by the artist's love of nature, this card is a print of a realistic Common Blue butterfly cut paper collage which is sure to make anyone look twice. Carefully constructed from 74 individual pieces of  paper which were hand-painted/printed using a variety of techniques and mark-making tools, every detail is made from a hand-cut/torn piece of one of those papers.


This 145x145 mm greeting card is printed on 350gsm card stock and includes a snow-white envelope, and is carefully packed in tissue paper (I don't use any cellophane in my packaging). The card is blank for your own message, with information on the back about how the butterfly was made and some tips on how to attract butterflies to your garden.

Butterfly spotting is a great way to practice mindfulness. Get outdoors, find a comfortable spot, breathe in the fresh air and see how many varieties of butterflies and other insects you can see. Notice their colours, their minute details, the tiny hairs on their bodies, the way they extract nectar from each flower they pause at, watch how their wings beat with the pace of your own heart, enjoy the sun's warmth on your face, the breeze in your hair. Now tell me you don't feel better!
