Blue Skies Machine embroidered handmade greeting card

Handmade in Melbourne by textile artist Tamara Russell, Puddleduck Designs offer a range of original, hand made greeting cards with something for everyone. Ideal to send to family and friends for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, congratulations, new baby or just to say thank you or I love you! The cards are left blank for personal messages. For a unique card which will be something special for that special person to remember and treasure please visit my shop.

It is always difficult to find that special card so if you don’t find what you are looking for or would like a design to be altered to suit your special needs please feel free to contact me.

I also take commissions for special personal events and for businesses to send to valued customers or clients. If you are a retailer interested in selling my cards, please feel free to contact me for wholesale prices.

No two cards will be identical as each card is individually hand made and a high standard is always guaranteed. Colour on screen may vary slightly from actual card colour.

All items are handmade in Melbourne. My guiding principles are social harmony and environmental responsibility. It is part of my business ethos to promote low impact environmentally friendly local production. The majority of my products are made incorporating upcycled, recycled or reclaimed materials. Wherever possible additional materials are 100 percent natural, produced sustainably and sourced locally. All products are created using green energy through solar power.

I reuse shipping materials whenever possible so the envelope that arrives may be worn but rest assured that your purchase has been handled with the utmost care.
