I’d decided awhile ago that it might be fun to make some Valentines cards. Typically I wait until the week of Valentines Day to start creating, because that is typically about the time I start thinking about it. But the boyfriend has kindly reminded me that it might be wise to start these sorts of things sooner. Apparently some people actually get a gift prior to the day before Valentines Day, and so I might want to be prepared. Yesterday, I decided it was time to follow through on his advice.
My aim was to create cards that were a bit off the beaten path and to also have fun with the things. I feel like I achieved both goals. The lettering isn’t perfect, but somehow that doesn’t bother me at all. It lets you know the cards were hand-crafted. I also like that the imagery and messaging runs from slightly sappy to funny.
If you’re in need of a Valentines card, I’m going to make prints of the designs and sell the cards in my studio and on Etsy. (If you’re near by and want to buy a few, contact me so we can avoid shipping costs). Enjoy!
