A handmade blank card featuring a nautical fabric boat sailing o the sea which is shown with debased waves. The card has a little button to look like a buoy and has a fish button also. The card has paper bunting which is made from a tartare sauce recipe.
A lovely card for this that enjoy the seaside, sailing, fishing, boats…a lovely unique card made especially for you.
The card measures 5 x 5 and comes in a white envelope and in a cello bag.
I can add a greeting to the card if you would like i.e. ‘happy birthday’, ‘sail away with me’ ‘bon voyage’ ‘retirement’.
With a background in greeting card design, working for several large greeting card companies I decided to branch out on my own and make my own little company. The name Milly Rufus was born from some fantastic old photo’s I once used on a range of cards which were of my Grandmother, Great Aunt and Great Uncle doing the most funny actions with witty captions. I wanted to keep some of this idea for my self and decided upon naming my business after my Great Aunt Mildred – “Milly” and my Grandmother Ruth who was affectionally called “Rufus” by my Grandmother. It is hard work and my lounge constantly looks like I am making cards 24/7. I dream of having a studio to work from with a view across the sea (which lucky for me is just a short way from my house). I live in a small market town where twice a week (weather dependent)I have my little market stall selling my cards which I love as the feedback from customers is always so lovely to hear and motivates me to keep going ! My dream is to produce cards with a decent price point to get out to every one and for everyone to know my name and love my cards !
