Blue jay 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.

Blue jay card digitally printed using archival pigment inks 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 blue jay 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. Perfect as an everyday note, thinking of you, or birthday card for a bird watcher, nature lover, ornithologist, or someone who feeds the birds. As an altar card, is very nice when trying to get clarity around a complex or confusing situation. The card and envelope are packaged together in a plastic sleeve and mailed in a stiffened mailer.

Framing. This blue jay 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 irregularly shaped mail, like this square blue jay card, 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. The mandala on this blue jay card, titled Blue Jay Bliss, was created from this photo of a blue jay, which I took out my kitchen window one late spring day when the blue jays were in brilliant breeding plumage. This particular jay was hopping around on the deck boards looking for the seeds that a mourning dove was flinging out of a tray feeder. You can see the focused intent in the bird’s eye as he scans for seed and can also appreciate here the clarity of the blue gracing his feathers. As Spirit Animal, Blue Jay carries the energy of clarity of sight and thought. Blue, you see, is the color of clarity and the blue on blue of a jay flying through the sky brings a double dose of clarity. Also note the white pattern near the tips of the bird’s wings. Some see a swan there, the symbol of grace beyond all measure.

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.
