I'm unsure where January went, but here's February with Valentine's Day bearing down on us. I love Valentine's Day if only for the cards. I, in general, adore stationary so any holiday that encourages the use of such stuff makes me ridiculously happy. I spent a ton of time wandering through etsy, so I present some of my favorite Valentine's-inspired cards.
I love Krank Press and this delightfully simple card is bright and cheery and I all sorts of want it.
Smock Paper is new to me, but I love their sophisticated, retro designs. The color combo on this card sold me.
Blackbird Letterpress was a lovely surprise when I visited Baton Rouge this last fall. Their series of die cuts are adorable and this bee is a perfect holder for a love note.
I am such a huge fan of PaperMichelle and her style. It is bright and whimsical and I love this cuckoo clock card. It makes my toes tingle.
Parasol Press was another find when I went to the Renegrade Craft Fair this December. I'm totally digging the retro look of this card (available through their main website, but I'm sure coming to their etsy store soon...)
I bought a few of these... It's always good to have a few back-ups.
