Carnival Petunia Card – Universe Is Calling

$4.95$5.95

Bright petunia mandala art printed as a 5.25″ by 5.25″ square greeting card includes envelope and free shipping. Perfect as a celebration or congratulations greeting card. Also has a spiritual vibe and can be a nice altar card for meditation. If you’ll be mailing your card to someone 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.

Petunia 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 petunia 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 for everyday greetings and the celebration of graduations and other achievements. Can also be used as an Easter card. The card and envelope are packaged together in a plastic sleeve and mailed in a stiffened mailer.

Framing. This petunia 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 petunia 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. One of three in a series I created from a single photo of what I dubbed carnival petunias, this mandala is all about the colors. I don't use the word "delightful" on a regular basis, but these petunias were delightful. I found them in the summer of 2014 growing in hanging baskets all around the town of Jackson, Wyoming, which is right outside Yellowstone National Park. There was so much going on in my photo that I was easily able to find three distinct areas with which to work. The mandala on this card, titled Universe is Calling, has the more interesting center medallion of the three finished pieces and includes what looks like a ring of blaring trumpets, which feels quite celebratory.

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.
