It’s just over a week to Valentine’s day, so if you’re going to let that special someone know how you feel, time is running out! (It’s not of course, you could just tell them any of the other 364 days of the year…but anyway.) For those that do want to get in the spirit, I thought I’d do a quick round-up of a few cards that have caught my eye!
Reading that back, it sounds a bit grumpy haha. I should add that I’m happily married, and it’s nice to celebrate that! But I don’t often do much on Valentine’s day, I think it can be a little too forced. But I will always get a card 🙂
For anyone wanting something a bit unconventional, and a bit less schmaltzy that other things on offer, how about something like this?
Well that should catch anyone’s eye! It’s the ‘You Light Up My Life’ card by Hip-Hip at Papier. And as with a lot of the cards at Papier, the message on the inside is customisable which is great.
Another one at Papier now, but on a more traditional theme…
I love the illustrations by Bow & Arrow Press, they are so beautiful. This is the ‘Winter Heart’ card, and (of course) you put your own names in the banner on the heart, so this is a lovely personal touch.
I love the colours and the constellations on this card, it’s beautiful. It’s the ‘One in a million’ card by Berin Made.
This card is simple, but says it all:
It’s the ‘Always and forever’ card by Old English Company.
But if you’re after something a bit more colourful…
This swinging sixties style ‘Love’ card by Rifle Paper should be up your street. (That link goes out to a UK stockist of Rifle Paper’s products, but there are plenty of other places to buy 🙂 )
And another beauty by Rifle Paper…
The ‘My Anchor’ card. Really lovely!
So there we go! A few of my favourites there. Better get buying as 14th Feb is rapidly approaching!
