Chia pets and their variations always freak me out. Not sure what it is, but they definitely do not put a smile on my face (no offense to those who happen to love them). But the thought of receiving a mini-garden in the form of a postcard, well that piqued my interest! These hybrid greeting cards known as PostCarden are cleverly designed by the team at Another Studio for Design. Talented artists are commissioned to design the front of each card, capturing their own personal style and vision.
Most greeting cards we receive are put away in boxes after they’ve been opened. But not these ones, because they allow you to bond, grow, and live with them for days to come. Not to mention how they will add the much needed greenery that many offices/work spaces are lacking! The proud owner will have a chance to create their very own mini-garden using the inner growing tray, the packet of seeds and the card display that opens up into a 3D scene! All you need is to water the seeds after they’ve been planted, and within a few days, you will see grassy herb-like fauna sprouts appear!
