This year, I have created a few valentines for instant download on Etsy. This is perfect for last-minute cards to give to classmates, coworkers, or that special someone that is lucky enough to be your valentine.
Instant download gives my shoppers the option of immediately receiving the card they need! How many times have we been on our way to a birthday party and realized "OH MY GOSH. I FORGOT THE CARD." Now, all you need to do is purchase a listing (for example, the sugar skull valentine pictured above), print the file, and fold the card!
I drew the sugar skull by hand and colored it digitally. I created a PNG file that will print on an 8x11.5 page. I highly recommend using cardstock.
Print & Cut
Even though, the image is made for a full sheet of paper, you can resize the image to print smaller sizes. That could be fun for classmates! Be sure to cut within the dotted lines, then fold in half.
Well, would you look at that? You've got yourself a valentine!
Its has been a lot of fun creating greeting cards for the shop. I have always wanted to design them, but the printing and shipping was mainly what held me back. It's incredibly time-consuming, and unfortunately, parenthood and a full-time job leave me very little time to dedicate time to work the necessary hours that this would require. Then Etsy began to offer the option of instant download - YAY!!! Now, I can design them and they are available to you much faster. Plus, you get to print as many as you want FOREVER!
