I hope it encourages a few more handmade cards, and a few less run-of-the mill, pre-made ones. Anyone can buy a card, but not everyone takes the time to make one.


There are a lot more fun and easy ones in my new VALENTINE DRAWING ebook. 

It contains 25 tutorials of things to draw as stand alone art, or perhaps very sweet homemade cards.

Each project includes easy to follow step-by-step tutorial, a full size line drawing for reference, and finished color sample. Just click on the title or book to learn more.
