Send Swedish Västergötland greetings with this beautiful Heather greeting card designed by Minnesota artist Lisa Rydin Erickson.

The Heather ('Ljung' in Swedish) is the iconic flower of Västergötland, which is a province in southwest Sweden.  Heather is popular with animals as a food source and has been used historically to dye wool and tan leather (the textile industry was once a leading industry in this region).

Includes envelope (each card is cellophane-wrapped).
Sold Individually.

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.
