Floral Greeting Cards On Zazzle

I seem to see a lot of greeting cards with floral images, and my own store is no exception. Many of these are my own photographs but I will use Public domain and CC licensed images when available.

The first cards here use images available from Dover Publications samples which are available for use in your own work, personal or commercial as long as you obey their rules which are really quite lax.

You will see that that there is a  difference in the text between these two cards; if you know Zazzle then you will know that it is nearly always possible to edit (or customise as Zazzle calls it) any item in their product range. Store owners/designers often allow customers to chcosse their own wording or edit what is shown to allow for the customers own personal message.
Also, many cards are left blank for those personal messages which seems to be a modern trend with art or craft based greeting cards.

Cards are available in three different sizes from 8.5 x 11inches (large card) to 4 x 5.6 inches (notecard). Prices reflect the size of the card.

Another similar design using a Dover sample, an image of a rose:-

The next card is an example of my own photography, this shot was of a wonderfully colourful bunch of flowers, too good to miss making further use of. One of a number of Mother's Day cards on my 
Zazzle store:-

My landscape paintings on Zazzle

My main pre-occupation is painting and lately I have been using pastels as my main medium. The colours are so vibrant and the technique I have developed is great for textured work. Plus the work can often be worked over if not satisfactory. Take a look at my painting blog to read about my methods. And you can read about this medium on Wikpedia or here.

The point with this story is that I use most of my paintings to produce designs on Zazzle. This is my latest, printed on a stretched canvas:

Many different sizes, are available (smaller than the given example and less expensive) and also three different thicknesses. But do beware if the thicknesss is customised, as the image goes right around the sides. let me show you a few more:-

Of course all of these designs are available (or could be) on posters, cards, postcards and many more products. I will  add some more products in another post. BTW, Zazzle has added many new products
toits product range lately - you could be surprised at just waht you can customise. Take a look and find out.
