Retro seaside greetings card and badge

Do you like to be beside the seaside? Well why not send a friend this retro seaside greetings card inspired by childhood construction cards.


We all love a day on the beach, tea in a beach hut, a walk on the pier, the fun of the helter skelter, the sun on our face and the smell of salty air! Celebrate the British seaside with this retro themed construction card in candy floss colours.


Cut out the pieces, fold the tabs and make your holiday scene. Can you find the hidden seagull? And don’t forget to wear the retro ice cream badge.

A brilliant card for birthdays, great to send to say hello or a wonderful reminder of happy days with friends and family.


Made from:

Each card is a printed detailed illustration on 250gsm card, cello wrapped and with a diamond backed envelope. The detail shows up much more on the card than the photographs. The card is A5 (210 x 148 mm) that is (8.3 x 5.8 in) and comes with a metal badge with a seaside ice cream illustration.

  1. This is brilliant. Love the idea and the way you have made it into something real.

  2. When I see this I miss Brighton so much! I’ve studied there for a semester and now I’m back at home in The Netherlands.

  3. So wanting some English summer weather!!!

    • Yes, totally agree. I was looking through my summer sketchbooks when I was researching the card and I realised we are in the part of the winter where it seems ages since shorts and a tee-shirt were all that was needed.

      Which means spring is just around the corner, hurrah!
