This mandala note card is a Milkweed Rising exclusive and is printed from an original work of digital art. This is the first in a series of mandalas that evoke the homely comfort of a handmade quilt. This one, which I did in greens and light pastels, started as a photo of a damselfly on a hazelnut bush. Although I pulled muted calico fabrics out of the depth of the photograph, I did not modify the metallic green or black wings of the beautiful damselfly. This piece feels like home and childhood to me–snuggled up under a well-loved and worn quilt made by a great aunt or grandmother. This note card is appropriate for framing or for use as an everyday greeting or birthday card for a cherished old friend. The original color photo and the story of the piece are printed on the back of the card.
This blank card is 5″ wide and 7″ tall (portrait orientation) and is printed on premium 100 lb. white matte paper. A white envelope is included.
Please note the watermark shown in the photo does not appear on the printed card.
