Local artist Amy Rice offers free V-Day cards for download

Looking for some cool Valentine's Day cards to send to your friends, family, and special sweetheart? You don't have to resort to shopping at the grocery store for Disney Princesses, superheroes, or Sesame Street themed packs. This February, local artist Amy Rice is offering some of her original V-Day designs up for free download on her Flikr site.

Cards for download include lovers on a bicycle, on top of a wedding cake, and heart-filled forests. Four designs are available on the Twin Cities artist's Flikr page, and can be printed out individually or in compacted sets of four if you're looking to go big with your notes this year. It's recommended that you use heavier paper stock when printing out images, so be sure to invest in some quality paper before hitting "print."
