About me

Here at Suzanne Marie Paperie I create hand illustrated, planet friendly greetings cards and art prints to gift and cherish.

My bee friendly Bloom Cards make the perfect card and gift in one for garden and nature lovers and create a lasting reminder of a special occasion.

I’ve always had a passion for paper and in 2020 I set out to create a range of sustainably made cards and prints using recycled and tree-free papers.

Having previously worked in Textile Design, I had seen first hand the volume of waste created in textile production and so I was delighted to discover seed paper made by recycling waste cotton from the textile industry.

I instantly fell in love with the possibility of creating cards that, rather than throwing them away, could be used again to grow flowers.

In November 2020 I sold my first packs of plantable Christmas cards. Since then the range has grown to include a colourful collection of cards for year round occasions and a small range of art prints on tree-free, sustainably made papers.

Each greetings card and art print begins life as an original hand illustrated ink or watercolour artwork, giving each design a unique look. They are then printed in small batches in my home studio in Preston, Lancashire and packaged using plastic free, recycled packaging.
