With the launch of the International BDS movements (Boycott, Divest, Sanction) against Israeli businesses and companies, many pro-Israel organisations have taken action by encouraging people to "buy blue and white", or products "made in Israel." The Israeli flag is made up of two solid horizontal blue stripes with a blue, six-pointed Star of David between them on a white background, hence the "blue and white". The flag was designed for the Zionist Movement in the late 1800's, and is based on the tallit, the striped prayer shawl worn by Jews at morning prayers.
Mister Handmade in Israel recently celebrated a birthday and, without realising it, everything I created for his big day was
blue green and white (sorry for the rather, ahem, tenuous connection). He doesn't seem to be getting bored of my papercut cards quite yet, so another one was created for his big day. My hand drawn and hand cut birthday card with star and bunting details has his age, 51, on it. If any of you would like to order a similar card I can happily change the number to whichever age you require.
