you know it's funny - i don't often make cards or envelopes for my husband (though i seem to for everyone else!). in almost every other situation, i think homemade cards and notes win out over store-bought ones. except, j sees me making paper stuff all the time so it's almost as if me 'taking the time to go out to the store' and choose a card for him is what counts for extra effort. so i've been perusing etsy for something fun and pretty. while hallmark is cute, these poignant and aesthetically chic cards below by red letter paper co. have won my heart thus far.
