Poppytalk Handmade Valentine’s Day Paper Stuff

I love the concept of Poppytalk Handmade, a monthly online street market curated by Poppytalk. The online market features and sells handmade goods from so many fantastic independent artists and designers including, thank goodness for us, many greeting card and art print designers. Here’s a selection of the paper lovelies from the Valentine’s Day & Wedding Market, which runs from January 7 – February 8, 2008:

Eco Friendly Paper : Objet de Carte

Eco Friendly Paper

I’m digging the greeting cards from Objet de Carte, created by artist and designer Robert Brownstein. His use of geometry, patchwork, and typography is both fun and inspiring. In addition, each card is printed on 100% recycled card stock, and envelopes are made from 100% recycled kraft paper.
