Valentine’s Day is fast approaching & even though it’s a holiday celebrating love, my favorite part is the adorable, punny e-cards that populate my Pinterest feed. The pop-culture references are my equivalent to annual Superbowl commercials, a blissful temporary distraction from the main event.
In the category of twenty somethings that still enjoys giving their friends and loved ones homemade valentines, this year I doodled up a batch of my own preppy puns. SCouring my closet for inspiration I sketched some objects that I use everyday, my LLbean tote, bean boots, & my mason jar (which holds all my favorite doodling pens). I then used a pre-cut card and envelope set I picked up from the local craft store, I glued my doodles solidly in place. For the lettering, I used individual lettered stamps to create that slightly off-center typewriter feel.
Happy valentine’s to you and yours
