I love Valentine’s Day, but I hate things that are too sentimental. I’ve made a number of cards and prints that are perfect for Valentine’s Day, or any time you want to show your love.
Sew in Love is a recently updated card, perfect for pun lovers and weirdos. Of course I hope your relationship is better than that between Frankenstein and his bride, to be honest she really hated him and it didn’t end well—fiery, but not well. Still a fun card, and a fun pun.
Holly & Paul is inspired by one of my favorite movies, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The drawing I made a few years ago and originally just had it as a mini print, but after a recent viewing of Tiffany’s I finally landed on some text to go with it. This is a great option for that special someone who loves Breakfast at Tiffany’s or for a friend.
All I Could Say Was Hello is also movie inspired, from both An Affair to Remember and Sleepless in Seattle. The line is a play off the “All I could say was Hello” line from both movies, the Empire State Building is also used prominently in both movies, with the heart only from Sleepless. Great for those who find themselves tongue tied in person.
Often a favorite amongst those with passionate, and slightly weird—in a good way— relationships. Morticia and Gomez are all about completely loving and appreciating one another.
This card doesn’t apply to most people. It is a rare love indeed if it’s valued more than cookie dough. If you’re not quite ready yet for that level of commitment you can always request a custom card, maybe an I love you more than oatmeal raisin cookies might be better. Some of you may be thinking that you love oatmeal raisin cookies, I’m sorry to disagree but I’ve always thought of them as an unpleasant surprise.
Sometimes the best person you can give a Valentine to is your mom. Yes, I normally think of this as a Mother’s Day card but it doesn’t actually say Mother’s Day on it so it can be for any occasion.
For those who want to give more than a card there is the Beatles inspired print from the Beatles Typography Series. I also like this print as a wedding present.
All of the above and more will be available at Love Buzz III, which takes place Saturday, February 6th from 12–5 at Mill No. 5 in Lowell. And as always you can shop on Etsy as well.
