Bee Card with Red Floral Mandala – Into the Eye

$4.95$5.95

Red blood lily and bee mandala art printed as a 5.25″ by 5.25″ square greeting card. Includes envelope and free shipping. If you’re mailing you card and would like me to add the correct USPS first class stamp to the envelope, please choose that option from the menu. An additional charge will apply.

Bee card with a red floral mandala digitally printed using pigment inks (the best!) on silky, bright white, acid-free paper. Folded card is 5.25" by 5.25" and comes with a beautifully made, bright white envelope. The photograph I used to create the mandala is printed on the back of the card with the photo location. Interior of the card is blank and the paper is super smooth, not slick, and takes gel, ballpoint, and other inks well. The card and envelope are packaged together in a plastic sleeve and mailed in a stiffened mailer.

Framing. This bumblebee card is created using high-quality materials, such as might be used in a museum. The print is sharp, bright, and frameable. To protect the vibrancy of the artwork, I frame using UV glass or acrylic, and I recommend it. If you use plain glass or acrylic, make sure you hang this sweet, little piece and all your beautiful art away from direct sunlight.

Postage. Because square cards must be canceled by hand, the U.S. Postal Service requires extra postage to deliver them. Special "butterfly stamps" carry the exact right postage to mail your bee card within the U.S. If you would like me to stamp the envelope with a butterfly stamp so it's ready for you to mail, please choose that option from the menu.

About the Art. I created this digital art piece, titled Into the Eye, using my own original flower and bee photos. The flower is a blood lily, a tropical I photographed in one of the glasshouses at Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The bee, replicated three times to suggest the beginnings of a swarm, was photographed in my yard on Pleasant Hill, outside Morgantown, West Virginia. In the finished mandala art, I meant the bees to look determined. They're going right into the eye of the storm, which is not coming, but has already arrived. Although they look fierce, bumblebees IRL are docile and not at all interested in stinging. If one alights on you, allow them to explore as you check them out. They're great pollinators and friends to the gardener.

Linda Gribko is an avid gardener, naturalist, author, artist, and photographer living just outside Morgantown, West Virginia, on a one-acre property she calls Yellow Bird's Rest. She's been gardening since the age of three, when she was put to work plucking rocks from the family vegetable patch, and was gifted her first growlight set-up at the age of eight. Linda is best known for her wildflower photography and the digital mandala art she creates from her nature photos, but is also a mixed media artist and published author. Her quirky first novel, "Giving Voice to Dawn", was published in November 2016 and was followed up with "The Lion's Apprentice" in June 2020. The series follows the magical romp of a woman plucked by the Universe from the cubicles of Corporate America and dropped into the crease between "this world and that" where Spirit Animals carry messages, disembodied voices spout wisdom, and you never know who might show up to walk you back home.
