My name is Ellie and I am the maker behind Twine & Thistle Cards.
I started making unique, handmade cards about 4 years ago, but my card business gained a whole new life when I moved to Scotland in 2019 with my wee family. We started in Inverclyde and made the move to Fife last year and I’m so incredibly thankful that we’ve been able to enjoy and appreciate both the West and East coasts of Scotland as most of my designs are inspired by this beautiful country.
My cards are completely handmade and start with basic cardstock and a handpicked paper design. From there, I measure, hand cut, bind the cardstock and designer paper, and add my favourite, unique elements to make each card one of a kind. I love working with twine, burlap, ribbon, and birch and you’ll notice a rustic inspiration in everything I do. I recently started creating framed art and tree ornaments because so many of my customers told me that they framed my cards. My framed art includes British tweed (some Harris Tweed), Scottish alpaca wool, and other locally sourced materials.
All my makes are hand-painted, handmade, and completely unique. I hope they bring you joy.
