Periodic elements of a 'MoThEr' or 'FAtHEr'. Great greeting card for mother's or father's day or a funny birthday card for Mum or Dad.

You can chan choose the 'Mother' card for your bright and rosy Mum on Mother's day, or the 'Father' card for a uniquely scientific father's day card inspired by chemically gaseous Dads everywhere.

The word on the front of the card is depicted in chemical symbols from the periodic table of elements. Underneath the chemical symbols, there is a short 'scientific' description of the type of person named above. This description is composed of actual features of the elements used in the making of the word above.

For example:

'Mother' is described as 'essential for plant growth' which is a property of Molybdenum (Mo), 'high in energy' (Thorium, Th), and 'soft, rare, bright and turns rosey in the sun' (Erbium, Er).

Funnily enough, the elements that compose the word 'Father' were mostly gaseous, so this description is focused on those features for the humour.

The 'Mother' and 'Father' cards have been designed especially for Mother and Father's days but would actually be great to give to parents on birthdays too.

made from:

Each card is made using a premium matt 300 GSM white greeting card with white envelope. The inside of the card is left blank for you to write your own message.

You can choose to have the card sent directly to the recipient. Please note that in this case a receipt will not be posted to the recipient but we will be happy to email a receipt to you on request. To have the card sent direct you will also need to enter the message you would like entering inside the card.

Your card will be protected in sealed plastic and sent in a board envelope for safe delivery.

    Very clever card that really made my mum (retired chemist) laugh.

    Very nice design, but the card it is printed on is pretty thin and had started to bend over within a couple of days.

    great - mum loved it, with her science background and all.
