This playful ‘Platypus Mum’ all occasion Australian Mother’s Day greeting card has been hand illustrated using fine liner pens, digitally coloured, and printed in Melbourne by The Nonsense Maker. The highly detailed drawing portrays a cute mother platypus relaxing in a hot bath of tea. The pink teabag to the side of the teacup says “mum time”. Inspired by a dreamlike world where little is what it seems, this Australian Mother's Day card has a light colour palette, using pale green and pink, with light shades of brown.

The Nonsense Maker’s ‘Platypus Mum’ Australian Mother's Day card is sustainably hand made in Melbourne using all 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 Mother's Day cards are ethically printed on high quality recycled paper, and our envelopes are 100% recycled.

We often have customers let us know they love our Mother's Day cards but struggle to think of things to write in them, and they are certainly not alone there! Check out our blog page for our top tips on what to write in a greeting card.

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