'Life is full of phases' greetings cards

The full Moon rises into the crisp, star-studded night sky. The start, end or middle of the Moon’s phases? Soon she will start to wane rising later and later until she only appears during the day, only her shadow facing us, barely visible to the naked eye. Rotating on her axis, orbiting the Earth, spinning around the Sun her elliptical movements affecting tides and animal behaviour alike. Life and nature is full of phases. These cards remind us to take comfort from the Moon’s cycle – ever shifting and yet always the same.

Text on front: Life is full of phases
Inside text: blank
Text on back: Life is full of phases. As the Moon orbits the Earth we see different parts illuminated by the Sun - from the full to new Moon and back, the cycle starting every 29.5 days. People in centuries past planned night time journeys and autumn harvests according to the lunar phases; the bright full Moon helped light the roads and fields. Although scientific evidence that humans are biologically affected by the Moon’s phases is scarce, other animals’ behaviours do syncronise with the lunar cycle. Whip-poor-wills nightjars hatch just after the new Moon so parents can hunt for food more easily as the full Moon emerges. Romantically, corals in the Great Barrier Reef release sex cells for reproduction under the light of the full Moon.

I love you to the Moon and back greetings cards

The we are stardust take on the traditional “I love you to the moon and back” greetings card. Send to your loved ones for anniversaries, valentine’s day or just to tell them how much they mean to you.

Front: “to the moon and back = 477170 miles of love”
Inside: Blank
Back: “The distance from the earth to the moon and back is approximately the same as going around the earth’s equator 19 times. That’s a lot of love!”

Beautiful design and quality

I love the beauty of this design and was unsure what the quality would be like but it's just as beautiful printed a natural lightly textured high quality paper. So much attention to detail. It does curl in a bit when displaying, which is a shame but doesn't deter from the loveliness.
