refreshing watermelon greetings card

One in a series of greetings cards designed by Caroline using inspiration from time spent living in Kobe, Japan. Taken from artwork created with hand carved stamps of iconic Japanese symbols.

Watermelon, or suika in Japanese, is a sweet treat enjoyed in the summer months in Japan. Refreshing and invigorating in hot climates, watermelon is served in single portions at festivals and on street food stalls. Fruit is often given as a gift for special occasions, as an act of kindness when visiting friends or in a business setting. Watermelons can be grown in shapes such as hearts or cubes, fetching huge prices in shops and markets.
