NEW Original Reproduction Victorian Greeting Cards for
LEAP YEAR Valentine's Day and Other Special Occasions

In addition to the existing collection, these are original handmade greeting cards I have created for sale, based on antique valentines. Each card is unique, and include layers of illustration and antique materials carefully reproduced to add timeless artistry and design.

Collector's Cards
2007 Love and Romance
2009 Rose Heart
2012 Leap Year Lace 

These cards can be used throughout the year but note that the Deco and Lace cards include writing specific to the Leap Year. You can learn more about leap year cards by clicking here.

Also shown below are small cards for everyday use, whether for Love, Friendship, Birthday, Get Well, Anniversary, Wedding, or other occasions. Cards made from fine Fabriano Mediovalis handmade Italian paper and embellished with pure German silver glitter, and adapted from Victorian cards in the Nancy Rosin Collection.

As long as my cache of vintage die-cut lace paper is available, I will create a special Collector's Card, hopefully you will want to collect them for each year. All cards are handmade, signed, and embellished with pure silver glitter.

Unfortunately, due to increased postal costs, shipping and handling is now $5.00 for most orders. For larger orders, I will contact you.
