Fleur de Neige
Fleur de Neige Art was born from desire to capture the beauty of various meadow flowers and plants, which, as beautiful as they are, can be very fragile and temporary. Unlike long-lasting plants, meadow flowers and plants wither away during colder seasons and disappear without a trace, as if they were never
there, regardless of how stunningly they bloomed and flourished during spring and summer.
When they end up on a greeting card, all these modest little plants are reborn, giving you a chance to see a different (yet still familiar) kind of beauty in them.
Behind the name
All shades of nature are beautiful to me, whether it be summer, autumn or winter. However, if you were to ask which one I find the most beautiful, I would say that it is the one created by the first snow, which covers the fields with a thin white translucent cloth. Then the contours of the trees and herbs are highlighted, and the autumn landscape is filled with silence, tranquility, cleanliness and many subtle muted reflections. With widened eyes in childhood, I admired these faint colours, while driving around with my uncle and aunt in the back of their car. As I started to make postcards, I wanted to move these colours into my work, make dried flowers like snow… flowers in snow…snow flowers … Fleur de Neige…

Why we love what we do
Fleur de Neige Art greeting cards are made from plants and flowers, collected in Lithuanian meadows and forests.
Carefully picked in the meadows and forests, herbs and flowers are then dried in books, selected and stored in boxes, painted with eco paints and lastly arranged and glued on cards. During the process we try to cherish every plant, because it’s our philosophy to love and respect all life on Earth.
The greatest attention whilst creating our greeting cards is given to the quality of the materials and overall performance. All materials used in our work are eco-friendly.
Flowers under the snow
Every Fleur de Neige greeting card is completely unique and no two cards are the same. The original technique makes them an unforgettable and unique gift for any occassion.
