About Nature’s Bounty Greeting Cards
Each one of our cards begins with a conversation with a farmer or an artisan at a local farmers’ market or out in their field, discussing what they love — the food they grow or the products they craft by hand. We capture the bounty of their labor with gorgeous photographs, we add a meaningful message inside, and we honor them with their photograph and contact information right on the back.
But the food cycle doesn’t stop there . . . it would not be complete without remembering our neighbors in need and supporting the vital services of the St. Louis Area Foodbank with a donation from each card sold.
At Nature’s Bounty, we are committed to creating greeting cards that are always BEAUTIFUL, always POSITIVE, always GIVING BACK.
Nature’s Bounty Greeting Cards is produced by Thrive Creative LLC,
a full-service graphic design studio (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We specialize in working with businesses and organizations who
promote health and well-being.
Meet our dedicated team:
I have always loved greeting cards . . . making them, giving them, and receiving them. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, and have worked as a graphic designer and book designer ever since. I have lived in several places — Boston and Albuquerque — but always found my way back to St. Louis . . . finally realizing, I am a Midwesterner through and through! Nature’s Bounty is a labor of love . . . allowing me to share some of the things I hold most dear.
I am a graphic designer and photographer, born and raised in St. Louis. I earned a Bachelor degree in Fine Arts from Fontbonne University and have previously worked as a designer for both Fontbonne and Saint Louis University. I’ve designed alongside Susan for over four years now, and it’s been such a journey to watch the greeting cards evolve from an idea to a line of over fifty cards. We hope they inspire you as much as they inspire us!

The St. Louis Area Foodbank began its service to the community in 1975. Since that time, the organization has grown to become the area’s largest nonprofit 501(c)(3) food distribution center dedicated to feeding those in need. The organization’s mission is to feed hungry people by distributing food throughout the bi-state region and engage our community in the fight against hunger.
Last year alone, the Foodbank distributed over 42 million pounds of food and personal care items, helping to provide 34 million meals for local families. More than 392,000 people rely on the Foodbank for assistance each year. With every dollar donated to the Foodbank, the organization can provide four meals and 97 percent of donations go toward food distribution. The St. Louis Area Foodbank is the only local food bank with memberships in both the United Way of Greater St. Louis and Feeding America. The organization is also an accredited charity with the BBB and has received seven consecutive 4-Star ratings.
For more information on the organization and the issue of hunger, please visit STLFoodbank.org.
