Greeting Card Art

20 Jan

One of the best tips I’ve ever received for inexpensive art is to frame postcards or greeting cards.  They’re small, so they are perfect when you’re short on wall space; the frames are cheaper, and something you can do yourself as opposed to having done professionally; and the cards can be easily rotated out.  Whenever I love a print but can’t afford it or don’t have a wall large enough for it, I always check to see if there’s a card version of the same print.

Whatever your feelings on Valentine’s Day, Maggie Mason’s Valentine Card Round-Up is a great place to start looking for fun cards, as many of these Etsy sellers make other kinds of cards too.  Plus, who doesn’t want a card about the Smiths being awesome?

Look for cards with colorful artwork, quotes that resonate with you, or images that make you happy (or creep out your guests).  Click on any of the cards below to go to the sellers, and use your imagination!
