Claude Monet - "I must have flowers, always and always"
For centuries flowers have given us significant meaning and have been celebrated for their symbolism. Each month of the year has its own birth flower and it is said each child born will inherent the characteristics of their birth flower. Culturally this goes back to Roman times where they would gift the birth flowers to new born babies.
We have taken flower and created a beautiful floral bonnet of botanical loveliness, paying attention to the floral colours and structures of the original plants for accurate likeness. Each print captures the historic record of your baby's birth using contemporary fonts. We have taken the symbolic meaning of each flower and created a beautiful verse for each print.

February - Primrose - You are patient and kind, nurturing and gentle
- March - Daffodil - You are the symbol of new life and the joy of living

There is a choice of three frames, white, black or solid oak. Unframed prints are delivered complete with a textured ivory mount in a clear cellophane wrapper. We care just as much about our packaging as we do our artwork - each frame is gift wrapped in acid free white tissue paper, with Corkymandle branding, making your final picture extra special. We use specialist frame postal boxes which are almost indestructible making for a safe delivery. However if you suffer a breakage we will be happy to replace quickly and naturally free of charge.
QUALITY MATERIALSThe materials used to create your product have been carefully sourced to provide the best quality materials from small local UK businesses. The prints have been professionally digitally printed using 300 gsm carbon neutral silk paper by a local family printing firm. The frames are produced and manufactured in the UK using British components where possible. The white and black frames are made from Polcore® which is design-led extruded moulding made from recycled polystyrene. Polcore® mouldings have a constant, clean finish and are impossible to distinguish from natural wood grain. The white wash frame has a shabby chic feel whilst the black option has a softer grainy texture offering a more sophisticated look. We also offer a natural oak frame which has a solid chunky feel which compliments the picture size and deep mount. All materials have been carefully considered to deliver a sophisticated but on trend look and feel to the finished piece. All framed prints are mounted using an ivory textured mount-board with an acid free backing board. The frame itself can either be hung or placed on a shelf and comes complete with appropriate fittings for either choice.
SIZE and DIMENSIONSFrame size 10” x 8” Picture size 7” x 5” Mount size 1.5” Frame measurements are taken from the inside measurements so your frame as a finished product measures 12” x 10” with the oak being slightly larger
