Gourmet Garden Greetings


Kevin Costner heard a voice saying, “If you build it, they will come.” For Green Field Paper Company, someone must have heard, “If you plant it, they will grow.” This field of dreams takes root in paper that contains herb and vegetable seeds. Planter up!

The fun and amazing stock (Grow-A-Note) used for these greeting cards is not only recyclable, but cradle-to-grave sustainable (and packs a gift that regenerates itself). For the designer in me, the seeds add even more texture and interest to the toothy, natural-colored stock.

Clever sayings and earthy, hand-drawn illustrations let the recipients know what seed variety their card choices contain. The tongue-in-cheek greetings (“Lettuce Celebrate Your Birthday!” … “Celebrate. It’s Your Thyme!” …  “Happy Birthday, Hot Tomato!”) fit all the most-requested occasions.

Two spot colors sprout a bright and lively palette complete with coordinating envelope color. The decorative frame border on each card reminds of the collectible seed package labels. Just yummy.
