She spends her days creating designs from little paper cut outs and line drawings, dreaming up worlds where men still wear suits and hats.

This year Louise has designed her new Snow Globe cards and notecard packs. Jolly flowers and animals dance across the notecards in Louise’s playful cut out collage style of illustration. Her cards are inspired by real kitsch snowglobes and New York, Paris and London cities make a perfect snowy scene. Shaped like a real snowglobe ornament, it opens out to sit on your shelf. Blank inside for your own message. They come with a zingy neon envelope to cheer up the postman, plus it’s packed in a biodegradable cello bag.
