Pink ant card is 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 peony photograph I used to create the mandala art 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 thinking of you card, humorous birthday card for a hater of ants, or gift to frame for a gardener or lover of flowers, especially peonies. Carries the energy of courage before a big leap, too, and could be perfect for someone you're rooting on as they take a big step in life. The card and envelope are packaged together in a plastic sleeve and mailed in a stiffened mailer.
Framing. This cute pink ant 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 ant 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 ant mandala art on this card, titled Soft Landing, began as a photo of an ant exploring an extremely fragrant peony bloom in one of my gardens on Pleasant Hill, near Morgantown, West Virginia. Ants are drawn to peony buds by the sweet sap they exude. Contrary to popular belief, ants don't really assist peony buds in opening by eating the sap. The sticky substance draws the insects, but it's not really holding the bloom closed. Ants, however, are a given if you grow peonies, especially the fragrant varieties. In this mandala, eight ants appear to be contemplating a jump into the great unknown, but, as the title suggests, a soft landing is all but assured.
