Love Boat Valentine’s cards
Posted 6 months ago and submitted by Becca Thorne | Share link: http://illo.cc/95725

I created this illustration years ago for my friends’ engagement, and it’s proved to be one of my best selling cards, particularly around this time of year. The original was a mini two-colour reduction linocut on mulberry paper, which created the beautiful textures in the background. It had my friends’ initials on the flag, and I only printed one, to make it extra special!

The cards are professionally printed in Cornwall on gorgeous card stock made from 100% recycled post-consumer waste. They come with recycled brown paper envelopes and are posted in 100% recycled paper packaging, plastic free. Available in my Etsy shop for eco-friendly Valentine’s/Galentine’s gifting!
