Caroline puts her stamp on it

A drawing by Caroline Gardner has been chosen by the Royal Mail to feature on one of its new First Class stamps for 2015.

The design, featuring a hand-drawn three-tier wedding cake, topped with two colourful hearts, was chosen by Royal Mail to feature as part of their Smilers 2015 First Day Cover Collection, celebrating special occasions and achievements such as weddings, anniversaries, births and birthdays.

Commenting on being chosen by Royal Mail Caroline said: “It’s thrilling to be part of Royal Mail’s new 2015 stamp collection. First Day Covers particularly are a huge thing amongst collectors, so it’s a great accolade to have one of my designs chosen. We must have helped millions of people celebrate special occasions over the years with our cards, and to now have our own special stamp is truly the icing on the cake.”

The Smilers Collection, including Caroline Gardner’s wedding cake design, went on sale last week.
