nerdy Valentine’s Day cards for your special someone

Please excuse me while I nerd out and share my favorite Nerdy Valentine’s Day Cards with you.Game of Thrones Nerdy Valentine's day cards

Let’s be real. I could end this post right here. Because, well, any guy who gives me a Tyrion or John Snow valentine would be the best. ♥

But while Game of Thrones does take up the biggest spot in my nerd-girl heart (maybe because the books are so damn long?!), there are tons of other nerdtastic v-day cards.

Battlestar Galatica Valentine’s Day Cards

When Ryan and I went through our BSG affair, we would frequently ask each other, “would you still love me if I were a cylon?” Finding out your partner is a cylon must be the ultimate test of love, right?

And this card. Oh gosh, my heart would swell if anyone gave me this card.

We have such adventurous spirits, that this could pretty much sum up our relationship.

 But, I feel like this card might be more up his alley, as far as romance goes.

I’m always fond of when Carl Sagan is portrayed as a romantic figure. And also, his love story might be my favorite love story of all.

DIY Potato Stamp Holiday Cards

Spend some time this weekend making your own holiday cards. My friends and I got together for our annual craft night where we listened to Belle & Sebastian Christmas music, drank spiked wassail, and of course, used lots of glitter.

The best thing to come out of tonight was discovering one of Ryan’s hidden talents. It turns out he’s fantastic at carving potato stamps. He made all of the stamps. We made ginger bread, candy canes, Christmas trees, and light bulbs. What do you think?

I hope I’ve inspired you to make your own. The potato stamps are pretty simple. Just cut a potato in half, pick a shape, and start carving. I’d think about tracing out your shape first, just to get a feel for the size and everything. But Ryan just took a parring knife and went at it, and they turned out fine. We stamped with plain old acrylic paint.

Oh, and the best card of the evening goes to my friend Bryan, who made a Mayan/2012/End of Times Christmas Card.

He totally cracks me up. Here’s the inside of that card.
