'Helpless' & In Love? Send a HAMILTON-Themed Valentine's Day Card!
In Broadway's HAMILTON, Eliza Schuyler was down for the count the second she gazed into the eyes of her future husband, Alexander Hamilton. Now you too can share that romantic sentiment with your loved one thanks to a new line of digitally printed watercolor postcards by artist and food writer Casey Barber. The cards are currently available on Etsy.
The new line of cards takes lines from Lin-Manuel Miranda's hit Broadway musical and puts a spin on them. "The idea for the Hamilton cards came from the fact that I have been quoting lines from the musical non-stop to my husband and friends for months; yes, I have become that annoying person," Barber tells Mashable.com. "It started as a joke ... then I started sketching little pictures to go with the quotes, and it evolved into an actual set of cards."
