The best cards are handmade, everyone knows. But who says they have to be made by your hands?
Deadweight, a.k.a. local artist Sandi Falconer, handpaints geometric prints and simple scribbles on highly individual cards. One says "good luck" over a horseshoe; another is just sugary pink triangles and licorice-black lines. The unfanciness of her work makes sentiment feel fresh again.
A card by Falconer beats some factory-made feeling—hands down. —SNP
