Tui Card by Wild Grey Fox
The Tui Greeting Card features stunning artwork by New Zealand artist Nikki McIvor. Made in New Zealand, this eco-friendly card is crafted from 100% FSC certified paper and wrapped in a compostable bio-bag.
This gorgeous card features Nikki's 2018 piece 2 Trees, inspired by her own garden:
“As we are surrounded by farmland, there are not as many native birds as I’d like due to lack of natural habitat. This drawing is my letter to all of us gardeners, urging us to put in more native plants and bird-friendly trees", says Nikki. "He is sitting in a magnolia tree, which – although not native to NZ – feeds tūī on the nectar of its beautiful white blossoms. The tūī is holding a kōwhai flower in his beak, representing his need for nectars provided by natives such as kōwhai and flax."
