It should be no surprise that I search for handmade, simple letterpress cards for all occasions on Etsy, and lately it’s been about the ‘I love you’ message. Why? Also, why do I browse the internet for a card when I can run to any CVS or Walmart? Well there are several reasons:
- We’re a few weeks away from Valentines Day (and I like to do things in advance).
- My two year anniversary (!!) with Al is on February 18th.
- I support independent artists on Etsy.
- I love design.
I’ve found a handful of adorable cards, all minimalistic and simple, just how I like my special occasion cards to be. Bonus points if the inside is blank. See, that’s why I am not a fan of going and buying a Shoebox brand card for example. Sure, some are cute and funny, but the chances of seeing that card elsewhere is high. Buying from designers and independent artists make it a little bit more unique and special. For those of you who like to do things in advance like me, here are my favorite cards so far for this Friday’s find.
Which card is your favorite? Do you have a special someone you’ll be purchasing a card for? Any cute ideas for the special day? Spill it and leave a comment! Happy weekend everybody!
