Mischief Makes: Ellie Poo Cards

As some of you know, my dream has always been to be a stationery designer. I've dabbled a little in the past always making my own Christmas cards and have done numerous wedding invitations over the last couple of years. Earlier in the year, my Sister sent me a Birthday card by Ruby Wren Designs made from elephant poo. I thought it was fabulous, such a great concept, kind to the environment and really brought a smile to my face. The design was so simple but totally unique. It really inspired me. I loved the quality and texture of the card so I decided to order some for myself ( from The Exotic Paper Company) and have a go at designing my first greeting card range. One of my friends is also in the process of setting up an eco-chic handmade business and said she'd love to sell my cards. I thought these would be ideal!

Here is one I made yesterday for my boyfriend's Mum and I've also just sent one to my friend's new baby (obviously can't show that one yet!). What do you think?


  1. Anna, your card is really lovely. I didn't know recycling elephant poo was apossibility - how interesting. I would buy your cards :)

    1. Thanks Geraldine, that is good to know. I need to develop some more :-)
