Hi there. How are you?
I've always had a lot of luck selling Valentines. Probably the best selling item I've ever had on Etsy was this Beatles inspired design that I made way back in 2008.
Put a Bird on it
I've happened upon another winning valentine design this year. This time, it features birds.
Second time's the charm
I illustrated these adorable fairy wrens in 2014. It's certainly one of my favorite bird pieces. They're damn cute. Don't you agree?
These two lover birds have always seemed destined for a valentine, but it took a while to get it right. Two years ago, I made another iteration of this card. You can read more about that HERE.
Right before the SIU craft sale this year, I decided to rework this card. It hadn't sold in its previous form and I wasn't satisfied with it as is. I changed the text to "Better Together", added the border and it sold like hotcakes! It was the best selling item of the weekend.
Though initially intended as a valentine, I could also see using this as an anniversary card. Really, you could even give it to your bestie!
As seen here, all of my cards now come with kraft paper envelopes. I really like the way they set off the white cards. I don't know why I waited so long to do this. I love the look!
