Pour water on a typical greeting card and you’ve got a soggy mess. Do the same to a Postcarden, and you’ve got the beginnings of a miniature garden.
According to DailyGrommet.com, Postcarden creator Aimee Furnival had an idea to re-think the greeting card and in a way that is stylish, playful, completely unexpected and yes, even alive. Postcarden is an artfully designed mini-botanical garden, and it comes in a small postcard-sized box that can be sent through the mail.
When you open the box, the card itself pops up into a three-dimensional architectural landscape. All you have to do is add the included seeds and a spoonful of water (no soil is necessary) and within a few days fresh watercress plants sprout to fill in the garden scene rendered on the card.
