Send Swedish Norrbotten greetings with this beautiful Arctic Raspberry greeting card designed by Minnesota artist Lisa Rydin Erickson.

The Arctic Raspberry ('Åkerbär' in Swedish) is the iconic flower (it is part of the Rose family) of Norrbotten, which is the northernmost and largest province in Sweden.  Åkerbär is considered a Summer delicacy in Sweden since it is mainly found in the Norrbotten region and at its peak for harvest in July and August.

As a working mother with limited time, Minnesotan Lisa Rydin Erickson began her artistic career drawing on her iPad on her bus commute to work; within a year she had created hundreds of drawings. Receiving positive responses to her work, she had her designs professionally printed and we are now lucky to share her work with you at The American Swedish Institute! Lisa is inspired by the beauty of nature, and in particular the cards available at the ASI Retail Store are inspired by the flora of the provinces of Sweden.
