This Set of 4 Thatched Cottage Greetings Cards includes 4 different designs on cards with envelopes. The cards show 4 of the Thatched Cottages in the terrace of Irish Thatched Cottages for which Adare is famous. The designs include our own cottage, The Blue Door which is now a restaurant, and two other cottages which are typical of this terrace. They are originally painted in watercolours and we print them locally, in Ireland, to a high standard. Alison Erridge is a watercolour artist and has painted these designs. We use watercolours to produce this Set of 4 Thatched Cottage Greetings Cards.
In this paragraph I will tell you a little of the history of the Thatched Cottages in Adare. The Dunraven Family of The Adare Manor originally built these cottages for their tenants in the early 1800’s. Their construction is of stone with a thatched roof made of local reeds.
The cards are blank inside so you can use them for a short note or a longer message. The card has a hammered surface which suits the watercolour treatment and adds luxury and quality to the card. The envelopes are white and as a result it is easy to see the address. Moreover you can also frame the card as a piece of art, which makes them a nice gift for a friend.
