Well, with Christmas over it’s time to think about Valentines already! I know that will fill lots of people with dread, and that the site of Easter eggs in the shops already feels like we’re wishing away the year, but what can you do?!
As such, I’ve been starting work on some Valentine’s Day gifts and cards to sell in my Etsy shop, and I’ve just listed the first of my card designs. I’ve loved the ‘Love Is…’ designs and drawings by Kim Grove for as long as I can remember…..I have a little figurine in my studio in fact, that used to sit in my childhood bedroom. So when I found this collection of PANINI collectable stickers devoted to the designs, I had to have them! And rather than them languish in one of my numerous treasure boxes at home, I thought I’d put them to good use by transforming them into super-cute greetings cards for Valentines!
Each original vintage sticker has been carefully attached to a high quality pale yellow A6 size card (148 x 105 mm / 5.8 x 4.1 in) using retro style brown paper photo corners. I have attached them in such a way that the sticker may be removed to reveal the reverse side, where you will find the title of the design (which appears in English, German, French, Spanish and Italian), as well as the design number and trademark.
The cards come complete with a matching envelope in the same primrose yellow. I have left the inside blank for your own message, and so they can be used for Valentines, Birthdays, Engagements, Weddings or just a Thank You card.
I have lots of different stickers from the collection, so you can choose which one best suits you and your Valentine! I personally love ‘Love is…..putting on the style for her’ (which is in the picture above), as well as ‘Love is…..dancing in the old-fashioned way,’ ‘Love is…..consoling her when her snowman melts’ and ‘Love is…..taking up cycling to get his weight down’!!!
I just think they’re adorable!
There is only ONE of each sticker so each card is completely unique! They are £3.20 ($5.00) each, and available to buy here now!
