Our ladybird greeting card is a perfect design for the gardeners out there and all who love our native wildlife. We so need to encourage ladybirds into our gardens to feast on all those horrid greenfly! Although there are many species of ladybirds in the UK, in many areas they are in decline because of the invasion of harlequin ladybirds. We hope that our ladybird card will help you to celebrate this insect and encourage others to as well. In our usual style we hand finish the ladybird with a fluffy black spot, made with a little puff of real sheep’s wool, making it 3D. The card is printed from one of Penny's original sketches. This is a lovely card and will undoubtedly be treasured by anyone who receives it. Like all our cards, this one is blank inside for your own personal message. It is a jolly useful card to keep handy in that stash of cards hidden away for an unexpected occasion - a forgotten birthday, a quick thank you to someone for a gesture of kindness, a card for one of those days when you just want to remind someone that they are special. If you like this design you may also like our other cards featuring some of Britain's tiny creatures. Check out our bee card with it's lovely handmade paper wings, and our blue butterfly. What other insects and small creatures would you like Penny to feature on her cards? We're always open to suggestions! Supplied with a soft pale green envelope made from recycled paper and packed in a clear cello bag for protection. Perfect for framing in a little 6 x 4 inch frame, or you could add one of our oak kit frames made especially to frame our cards. Card size – 10.5 x 15 mm (4 x 6 inches) Printed on a quality 280 gsm textured board.Product Code: Bug8
