Valentine’s Day Cards, Pt. 6

When I set out to put together a roundup of naughty valentines, I had no idea just how raunchy cards could get. Woah, baby, I wish I could unsee some of the things that I found!

After much searching (and blushing), I think that I’ve come up with a bunch of cards that are funny, racy, well-designed … and that don’t require an R rating. I hope that you’ll get as much of a kick out of these cards as I have.

Kelsey Garrity-Riley for Red Cap Cards

It makes me such a happy paper lover when Red Cap Cards introduces a new artist collection, and I was so excited to see that their most recent artist collaboration was with Kelsey Garrity-Riley, whose work I’ve admired since I first saw it a little while back. Her art is a unique blend of sweetness and nostalgic wistfulness that really touches a chord with me, and these darling cards are a wonderful addition to the Red Cap collection.
