It’s the Year of Cool Valentines Day Cards
Continuing our Valentine’s Day inspiration, here are a few more great greetings card picks. Quite simply, cool valentines day cards that are sure to impress the one you love.
First up is a few beautiful, bright patterned cards from Big Jon. I love the paper cut-style, intricate patterns on these designs, and how the traditional Valentine’s red stands out beautifully against the crisp white background … a classic, stylish card for a loved one. Big Jon greetings cards are available from stockists nationwide, and can be purchased online from Scribbler. Cards are available in small to large sizes, priced £2.49 -£5.99.
Inject a little warmth, and humour into your Valentine’s Day with these fab greetings cards from Holy Mackerel. Created by Artist Erica Sturla, there are a dozen card designs to choose from; for husbands, wives, boyfriends and girlfriends. Each comical set up is brought to life by Erica’s charming polymer clay creations. Retailing at £2.15 each, the full range can be seen and purchased online at the Holy Mackerel website.
My final selection for today is from Illustrator and Designer, Louise Jenkins. Taken from her new Valentine’s collection of greetings cards and art prints, these adorable designs are called ‘He’s Foxy’ and ‘Kissing’. Each design starts as a hand-painted image, created in water colour and gouache, before being scanned and printed onto a high quality fine art paper. Cool, contemporary designs with great pattern details, these cards are a great option for design fans. Cards retail at £2.50 and can be purchased direct from the Illustrator Lou Etsy shop.
