Nowrūz is March 21, 2015 and this card with a cute bird couple is the perfect way to greet it.
It also features Nowruz Mabrook on vellum attached to orange cardstock that has been placed over a forest of decorated trees.
Nowruz is Iranian New Years, an official holiday lasting for 13 days during which most national functions including schools are off and festivities take place.
Haft Sîn (Persian: هفت سین) or the seven 'S's is a major traditional table setting of Nowruz, the traditional Iranian spring celebration. The haft sin table includes seven items starting with the letter 'S' or Sīn (س) in the Persian alphabet.
As an essential object of the Nowruz table are painted eggs – symbolizing humans and fertility. These beautiful decorated bird couple can be sent to a friend so that they can bring them luck for the New Year. And they are much cheaper to mail then a decorated egg.
The card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and is on beige cardstock and comes with a beige envelope in a protective plastic sleeve.
I made it in my non-smoking, pet free craft room.
Merci for looking!
