Hi all! Yvonne here — founder of Cardtorial. I’m excited to share this blooming pet project with you. We printed thousands of this beautiful print as postcards, and are offering them entirely free on our website (order up to 100)!!
In thinking about our most recent Cardtorial collection, we were moved by the quote, “Where flowers bloom, so does hope.” This quote seemed to acknowledge the sadness we felt about the current state of events while also reminding us to find the silver lining and keep our heads up. We designed this postcard so that we could write about the things that are most important to us and offer a tool for others to do the same. We, as a team, will be using these postcards to write to our local and state representatives on a daily basis. We hope it will provide some perspective to our work days and will serve to keep us engaged in the ongoing fight for equality, understanding, and respect.
To us, feminism means we believe in equality. We wholly and proudly embrace the term. I mean, who in their right mind doesn’t believe everybody should have equal rights?! While some may deny we live in a patriarchal world, women face inequality on a daily basis and it’s infuriating to say otherwise. We want to live in a world where women of all races and sexualities are free from discrimination and oppression. Just like wildflowers, we will persist to bloom beautifully regardless of what’s in our way.
Perhaps the beauty of setbacks is the ability for it to challenge us and encourage us to grow in some way. If you’ve been meaning to write to your local representatives, please order some postcards. If you’re involved in a group huddle and think this would be a valuable resource, please order some postcards. If you have a loved one, friend, or office that would like to participate with you, please order some postcards and then share the love. You can order the postcards via the link below. We’ll ship up to 100 cards to you, completely free of charge!
