Lyst Flor greeting card, blank inside


This bright greeting card is a friendly and happy way to say "Hello," "Thinking of You," "Thanks," or anything at all! Cards are blank inside, with a bright, retro flower pattern on the front. This pattern reminds me of mid-century Scandinavian pattern designs, so I named it "Lyst Flor" which means "Bright Flower" in Danish. Before I was born, my family lived in Germany for a few years. They brought back lots of cheerful Danish and Scandinavian designs, from children's books to furniture, stationery, and toys. I grew up loving these happy pieces, I've always incorporated this colorful influence into my own visual repertoire and this card particularly reminds me of those beautiful mid-century childrens' designs. 

Cards are hand-printed in green and raspberry ink on an antique letterpress in Maine. Each card measures 4.25" x 5.5" folded, and is printed on a heavy-weight, cream colored French Paper card stock. Each card comes with a bright-green envelope.
