For cards, Darcy always turns to Paper Source for the wide variety of shapes and colors. This Valentine's Day, she went for a red and gold theme, selecting note cards in those colors. Add a Martha Stewart Crafts Punch ($9, originally $10), and you're good to go.
"I like punching through the window, and then sliding a card in that you can't see from the outside," Darcy says. Baby envelopes, used on several of the cards pictured here, help create an impactful presentation.
"I'm a big rubber stamp fan," Darcy confesses. Stampworx in NYC is her go-to shop, but you can find a local printer that can do the same thing. "You can email them your artwork, and then they make them into stamps. You can do it with your kids' artwork. Again, it is something you can put on a box, lunchbag, favor box, make postcards, whatever. I had a rubber stamp made of my drawing of the kids on a bicycle. "
