The Valentine’s Bandwagon. I’m getting on it.

After enjoying making Christmas cards, I thought, what better way to be surrounded by Valentines Day cards this February than to come up with ones myself. 

I have never enjoyed Valentines day, the premise or the look of it. Too much red. But I wanted to make a few different cards that might make people smile. The first ‘Quietly Amazing’ card was never meant for Valentines Day, but just to be a generally positive card.

I’m hoping to take two of the designs forward and produce a limited number.

Alternative Shy Christmas Cards

I’ve crafted Christmas cards in same style as my Shy poster series, that featured different printing techniques and subtle colour changes to show a subtle, typographic message.

The worst thing about these cards is that they don’t photograph well! The Christmassy message written on each I’ve got to a perfect amount of visibility (through lots of trial and error).

The first card is fairly traditional with the lyrics “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” on the front in… white. The minimal, effortlessly cool style of the white on white is perfect for those that like a twist on standard Christmas cards.

The other cards take their inspiration for the Pogues song Fairytale of New York. These ‘shy’ cards have had a Christmas drink and are now a bit sweary.

You’re a bum
You’re a punk
You’re an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it’s our last
