Pink clover 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 clover 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 a springtime, summertime, or anytime greeting. Is also a nice Easter card. The card and envelope are packaged together in a plastic sleeve and mailed in a stiffened mailer.
Framing. This clover 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 clover 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 plant I photographed to create this mandala is commonly called a red clover. That's right, red, although it sports decidedly and beautifully pink blooms. The thing about common names, though, is they stand alone, out of context. A red clover flower might just look redder than, say, the pale pink clover growing next door and suddenly the common name makes sense. And, if you do find red clover growing in your yard or garden, you might want to let it be. The bees love the blossoms and the bunnies, which all gardeners love to hate and hate to love, are quite fond of the nutritious leaves. Clover also works in concert with tiny soil-dwelling organisms to pull nitrogen out of the air and add it to your garden, gifting you with free fertilizer. But, regardless of all this clover backstory, this mandala, titled Clover Redux, is part of my ongoing Reconstructed Flower Series, in which I work with a single bloom, taking it apart and putting it back together in a way that creates a central focal point for contemplation.
