Nature Blank Cards

Zen nature card set, of minimalist square blank cards featuring a mountain bluebird, a flicker feather, and a bare tree on a foggy day.Stillness. Happiness. Lightness.

I love these words. They are so simple yet so powerful. They are words to live by.

I came up with an idea a few weeks ago to combine one meditative word with one complimentary image. I wanted the look minimalist. Then I went searching for the right paper. It had to be special. I chose Museo paper, a creamy textured art paper that produces beautiful soft images.

It was so fun and rewarding coming up with these new card designs. I hope you like them. Right now there are only three in the Zen Nature Card Collection, but I'll be searching for more combinations to add soon.

    1. Thank you so much. I'm happy you like them.

  2. Your work is always lovely Julie. While I like all three, love 'Stillness'.

    1. Bonnie, thank you! That one seems to be the hands down favorite for most.

  3. I love simple cards like these.

  4. Lovely.. I especially like the one with the feathers

    1. Thank you Hena. That is a feather from a flicker. They look brown from above but when their wings open you see the flash of orange feathers. They are beautiful birds.
