A very Etsy Valentine’s card roundup

Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays…I think every girl goes through a phase in her life in which she loathes the day, usually when she doesn’t have a particular beau to celebrate it with. But I think a lot of women, myself included, have come to appreciate the holiday as a more generalized celebration of the special people in our lives – sisters, brothers, mothers, fathers, friends and even…dare I say it…ourselves. So no matter WHICH happy relationship you are smiling about this Valentine’s Day, I’ve rounded up a group of funny, funky and fabulous cards to exchange – All from my favorite online crafting mecca, Etsy.

V-Day card

You’re kinda cute and I kinda like you a little. (Ok, maybe a lot.) // The ubber casual vibe of V-Day cards as of late has me sighing with relief. As sweet and sentimental as those long-winded serious cards are, there’s something so refreshing about a card that says it all in just a few short lines. (the exception is the thoughtful ones from you, mom!)

Bison love // I’ll buy into just about ANYTHING with a quirky animal on the front, bison included. Nothing says “cute” and “cuddly” like that shaggy head body of hair – And the conversation bubble + heart doesn’t hurt the “lovable” factor one bit.

3D hearts // I get a little up-edy about all this 3D hype in theaters, but I can easily wrap my enthusiasm around a CARD that comes with multicolored glasses.

There are plenty of fish in the sea, but you truly are the only fish for me // Now THAT’S a good poem. And one that I actually get.

You make my lemon drizzle // If the visual of lemon drizzle doesn’t scream “sweet” to you, nothing will. This is the perfect card for the confectionary lover in your life.

You’re my jam // Three little words! Okay, maybe they’re not the “three little words” you were HOPING to hear this Valentine’s Day, but it’s the thought that counts. And I’d say being someone’s “jam” is worth an awful lot.

Boston terrier love // Although John would likely rather see little pug mugs on this card, I’m sure the pair of lovey dovey terriers would bring a smile to his face.

When the zombie apocalypse comes, I’ll eat you last // If I had to choose one card out of the bunch to get for John, this would be it. What can I say? The kid loves him some zombies, and chances are your guy does too.

You + Me = Chemistry // I love the graphic design on this one. Great colors, nice letterpress detailing and the perfect one liner. What more could you ask for?

I’m a big fan // This perky, light hearted card is the light bulb solution for an aloof girlfriend or big brother. It says it all without getting too mushy gushy.

Bike love pair // If I had to choose one card for John to get ME, this would definitely be it. I love the color combo, plus the neat bike silhouette is perfection.

Hedgehog love // Hedgehogs in winter gear. Need I say more?
