Valentine's day is my favorite holiday because I love making the cards. This means hours of painting and paper cutting, using mainly my favorite color (pink)! Every year I send my mom a gouache painting of hearts and fun shapes, and she sends me some elaborately layered, paper cut heart she made. This year I decided to design a set of printed cards using some of my favorite Valentine's colors and patterns. The shape and size is reminiscent of the little cardboard cards we used to exchange in elementary school, but without the Looney Tunes or Rugrats (I'm guessing these days it's more like Justin Bieber and Miley).

The card set is for sale here.
