A hand printed linocut card inspired by and created on the Isle of Islay off the west coast of Scotland.

This card is blank inside for your own message and measures 172mm x 122mm. The card is made from good quality 300g recycled paper and comes with a brown Kraft envelope.

With their bright yellow flowers forming a Maltese cross from above, Tormentil is abundant here on the Oa, Islay. It grows amongst other vegetation in acidic soils on the moorland and has a multitude of traditional medicinal uses including smallpox, cholera and dysentery.

This Tormentil design was sketched on The Oa in June 2020 high on a hill close to our home on Islay. After sketching we then transfer the design onto Lino and carve it with a fine tool. Every card is hand printed and therefore unique. We use vegetable oil-based inks and our cards and envelopes are made from recycled card and packaged in recycled tissue paper.
