Amber of Amber Snow Photography keeps that childhood charm with these custom flat cards. She shares, "I changed up my favorite template in the Holiday Headlines - Festive Card Collection and used it as a Valentine's Day cards for one of my clients. I printed them on linen press paper through Miller's and paired them with colored envelopes from The Paper Source.

The design is simple, modern and fun, and I feel it suits my photography well. This particular client wanted to order some cards for her kiddos to hand out in their school classes. I love that because it's awesome marketing directly to my target audience."
