Green greetings.

NUVO Magazine: PostCarden

The snail-mail greeting card isn’t antiquated, it just needs to be reinvigorated, and London-based design company, Another Studio for Design, has planted just the right seeds of inspiration. They have animated the conventional postcard with PostCarden, a collection of themed pop-up cards. Each includes a charming mini-garden that will sprout once the garden cress seeds are sown and watered. These playful cards have a life of their own, and encourage a bond to form with a greeting that may have otherwise stayed static.

Now, through its online shop, the studio has unveiled a smattering of seasonal offerings: ornaments in angel, star, and tree silhouettes; a pop-up reindeer and sleigh; and two new holiday postcard-gardens, the winter PostCarden, and Santa’s grotto.
