I have to admit that I’m not a big fan of Valentine’s Day. Why do we need a special day to tell the people we love that we love them? However, I AM a big fan of awesome Valentine’s Day cards which, really, can be used any day that you’re in the mood to tell your sweet that you like them in the kissy kissy way.
Speaking of awesome Valentine’s Day cards, here’s a big bunch of my favorites:
Above, clockwise from top : Lovely Valentines | Studio Sarah; Be Mine | Sugar Paper; Valentine Fade | Smock; Love Rocks | Rafftruck Designs; Please Take a Number | a. favorite; I Like You in the Kissy Kissy Way | Hello Small World; And They Said It Wouldn’t Last | Emily McDowell

Pei Design has introduced so many crave-worthy paper goods over the past year, and I am most definitely craving their Golden Rule Collection of five gorgeous, gold foil stamped thank you cards. The mix of classic pattern and shimmery gold foil, with “thank you” in sweet and simple type against a bold, black backdrop, creates such an elegant, modern look.
