Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales and is the highest point in the British Isles outside of Scotland.
The rocks that form Snowdon are volcanic and were used by Sir Edmund Hilllary in his training for his ascent of Mount Everest.
Snowdon is home to many rare plants and creatures and the surrounding area of Snowdonia national park is home to artist Josie Russell.
Stand the card on your mantel, frame it, pop it on a shelf or send it to your friend who's crazy about patchwork.
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.
