"Roses for a Friend" note cards
These cards, from my original watercolor "Roses for a Friend" (which was painted for a dear friend who loved roses AND sending cards to friends), are perfect all occasion cards. Each card features a bright yellow and black Tiger Swallowtail butterfly (the state insect of Virginia) landing on a cluster of yellow roses with a background of blue sky and purple butterfly bush flowers. The blank interior lets you add your own personal message of friendship or encouragement, a note of thanks or an "I'm thinking of you" sentiment.
My cards are professionally printed locally on heavy weight card stock. I package EIGHT 5.5" X 4.25" cards with ivory envelopes in a clear box and add a hand-tied and embellished bow (design varies).
A package of cards makes a nice gift by itself or when tucked into a friendship, garden or nature-themed gift basket.
