Prepare to fall in love with the Making a Murderer-themed Valentine's Day cards

It’s been almost two months since Netflix’s Making a Murderer hit our screens and we still can’t stop talking about it.

After hearing the devastating story of Steven Avery- jailed for 18 years for a crime he didn’t commit and now serving time for a murder which many believe he also didn’t commit – the American justice system has been pulled into question and exposed in a never-before seen way.

Although most of the talk surrounding the true-crime drama has focused on Avery and his nephew Brandon Dassey whose prosecutions appeared flawed and deeply biased, there has also been a lot of love for Avery’s defence council: Dean Strang and Jerry Buting.

Strang and Buting are the kind of barristers that reaffirm one’s faith in justice and in good intentions. Their conviction in the innocence of their client knows no bounds, and their desire for justice is impassioned and admirable.

As a result, the duo quickly became the unsung heroes of Avery’s trial, and unlikely sex symbols – with internet memes cropping up all over the web.

In the latest installment of the Strang-Buting obsession, someone on Etsy has created Making a Murderer-themed Valentine’s Day cards – and we cannot get enough of them.

Sometimes, when it comes to Valentine’s Day, it can be difficult to express how much you love your SO – but these cards take all the difficulty out of it – we’ve already ordered ours. 

If you’ve got a binge-watching love buddy, these are the cards for you.

Starting from £2, they include one that says: “I love you like Dean Strang and Jerry Buting love justice,” and “You are the Dean to my Jerry.”

There are also some more questionable installments, including, one that says "You've planted evidence in my heart" and one that shows a drawing of Avery with the words "I'm guilty" above it- which opens to say "of loving you."
