Walk the Turtle greeting card


What is Etsy?

Etsy is a marketplace where people around the world connect, both online and offline, to make, sell and buy unique goods.

Etsy provides shopfront and shopping cart functionality for creative folk who sell handcrafted or vintage goods. It's also a community for sellers and buyers.

You can help this monkey to shine by favouriting my shop, MadeByMonkeyshine :)

This geometric turtle design was inspired by the book, In Praise of Slow, by Carl Honoré. There he relates a story from the Austrian city of Klagenfurt where people in a busy shopping precinct were encouraged to slow down by steering a turtle marionette along the pavement. Participants found it very soothing and I loved the image it conveyed and the idea of slowing down.

A popular choice for retirement, Fiftieth, Sixtieth and other Big Number birthdays, or just to be silly.

Blank inside for your own words of wit, wisdom, love or cheer.

Comprises a blank inner sheet, an outer card and a label lovingly sewn together with zig-zag stitch.

About my Tabbed Cards

Monkeyshine greeting cards are designed for keeps and made with love and attention in Hobart, Tasmania. The unique, stitched-in label concept was inspired in a moment of madness, when I was idly looking at the fashion tab sewn into the side of my favourite cardigan.
