Amy Rice offers free V-Day cards for download


Local print artist Amy Rice is sending out sweets for her sweethearts a little early. She announced in a recent newsletter that she simply couldn't wait to release her winter gift to her fans: adorable, free Valentine's Day cards.

Who needs Cupid or Hannah Montana postcards when you can give bits of art featuring cupcake towers, heart forests, and lovers on two-seated bikes?

Last year was a busy one for Rice. Not only did she relocate to a new studio in the California Building, but she was also featured on Minnesota Original, and was was number 96 on City Pages' 100 Creatives project.
