perfect match

well this year i got (kinda) organised and printed some valentine's day cards before mid february, whoop! i wanted to make cards that combined printed images and actual objects, i've had a nightmare doing this before when i made the tea bag cards (will i never learn) but i like the way it looks so... i printed the typography and imagery in my home studio and then spent ages striking, sealing, hand whittling and sticking each match. if you have a special someone who sets your heart aflame you can buy them a card from my etsy or folksy shops.
i really like the #justacard campaign which encourages people to buy a card from an independent maker or gallery. even small purchases mean such a lot to me and other designer makers and a handmade card is so much nicer than a mass produced one don't you think?
