Winter Solstice- when the longest night of the year arrives, and the world begins its return to light and warmth. The Lady lights her candles against the darkness, to break the grasp of winter and turn the seasons back toward spring.
Open the Winter Solstice Yule Card, and you'll find more fanciful holiday art- a wild faery child, surrounded by phrases of holiday greetings in various languages. The facing page reads, "With blessings of the season". Add your own message if you wish. Then slip the Christmas card into the coordinating envelope, and send it on its way. This earth-friendly card is printed on recycled paper using vegetable oil based inks. Cards are sold individually, wrapped in protective cellophane. They measure 6 3/4" by 4 3/4".
Who is the artist? If you have never seen the artwork of Briar, you are in for a real treat. Briar is one of England's leading mythological artists. His subjects evoke a time of ancient magic and mystery.
The holidays are over, but the card is too pretty to throw away! Keep it! Find an inexpensive 5" x 7" frame, and slide it in. This Yule card will make a gorgeous mini-poster when you deck the halls next year.
I particularly like the cards by Briar for their use of colour and symbolism. This one is along the same lines as The Lady of Lights and fits the season well
