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?
