Mermaid purses are those curious shaped objects found on the beach. Black and shiny, with a pouch in the center, these are the egg cases of skates. If you ever have a chance to visit the Mystic Aquarium, they have a wonderful exhibit showing live eggs, with transparent membranes, where you can see the eggs in all stages of development and the hatchlings in the bottom of the tank. Choose from a single card and envelope or a set of five cards with envelopes.
The cards are blank inside and digitally printed on Fabriano Medioevalis, a mould made paper from Italy. The paper has deckled edges and a rich, creamy texture that is easy to write on. Note cards are 4 1/2 x 6 5/8 inches, envelopes 4 3/4 x 7 inches.
