Every time you order an Australian made greeting card from The Nonsense Maker these two women do a little happy dance! Hooray!

All of The Nonsense Maker’s greeting cards are hand made in Melbourne using Australian suppliers. Beginning with a pencil sketch before moving to pen, a method called crosshatching is used to create the depth and the tone you see in the final design. This fine line art is then scanned into a computer and coloured digitally. All our greeting cards are printed on high quality recycled paper, and our envelopes are 100% recycled.

Where The Nonsense Maker gets her greeting card ideas

The Nonsense Maker’s greeting card designs are imagined from a fun and whimsical world where dreaming meets reality. Sometimes silly and sometimes sad, and inspired by etching techniques used by old time illustrators. While The Nonsense Maker’s art prints often have finer details, the greeting cards are usually an easy cheerful expression designed to bring a smile to your face.
