Ricky Burton-Romero has been making greeting cards for over 6 years. What started out with adult coloring has led him to many crafting opportunities. He has worked on many design teams along with the way and is happy to join the LDRS team.
Ricky’s cardmaking style ranges from clean and simple to a full-on story on the front of his card. He enjoys ink blending and Copic coloring for most techniques.
Outside of the card-making world, Ricky is married to his husband Tony and has two dogs named Ivy and Imogene. As an avid animal lover, he volunteers for organizations like Live Like Roo and Wild Hearts both based in Chicago. Each year he hosts a card drive to help an animal organization in need. Last year he raised over $5,000 for Live Like Roo doing a virtual 5k.
