New Love stamp from USA



US Postal Service will issue a beautiful  “Cut paper heart stamp”   on 21st January 2014 for this year’s Valentine’s Day Greetings.


The romance of the Love stamp series continues with the Cut Paper Heart Digital Color Postmark. This First Day Cover  features an affixed Cut Paper Heart Forever® stamp. The whimsical digital illustration depicts a red square with “pinked” edges — as if cut with pinking shears — containing a large, pink heart surrounded by pink swirls and smaller red hearts.


The color postmark features the stamp title surrounded by a flower-like formation of familiar folded-and-cut red paper hearts, accented with green hearts resembling the flower's leaves. Also included are the official First Day of Issue date and location for the stamp.
