A card for all of us who dream of the cosy cottage in the countryside with roses around the door and a veg patch.
This storybook applique cottage is based on Josie's traditional Welsh cottage in the Snowdonia national park.
Use your card to cosy up a mantel or shelf, frame it, prop it up against a mug on your dresser or send it to your patchwork-obsessed, cottage-crazy loved one.
About the Artist
Josie Russell is a talented textile artist based in Gwynedd. Her work is inspired by the mountains, flora and fauna of the North Wales coast and countryside.
As an extension of this, she is passionate about sustainability and treading lightly on the earth. Thrifty as well as arty, Josie only uses the bare minimum of new materials: canvasses, certain threads or spare parts for her sewing machine.
The rest - fabric remnants, ribbons, buttons, beads and other trinkets are recycled from Josie’s own clothes, donated by her family and friends or sourced from local charity shops, meaning that her money often finds its way back to charity.
