Valentines Cards / January 2, 2019 / Eve Callahan
Choosing your embellishments can be a lot of fun but also a little daunting. The most important thing to remember when choosing the right embellishment for your Valentine card idea is that you are looking for something that will suit your card design and that the recipient of your card will love. Embellishments come in many forms. You can choose from die-cuts stickers epoxy or acrylic stickers three-dimensional stickers chipboard shapes rub-ons buttons sequins ribbons scraps of fabric stamped images brads eyelets snaps or even handmade embellishments you can purchase from other crafters or make yourself. Traditional Valentines card motifs include red love hearts (although why restrict yourself to red?) cupid doves teddy bears and red roses. All of these work well with any Valentine card ideas.
There are literally thousands of cards on the market to choose from but sometimes it is much nicer to give your special someone a more personalised card made just for them. But where to start? Here are a few Valentine Card Ideas to inspire you: 1. Your color scheme. Traditionally Valentines Day cards are red and white but other colours like pink gold or black are also creeping into the mix as crafters push the boundaries. For a truly unique Valentine card idea try a completely different selection of colours like brown and blue or green and blue. Using your special someones favourite colors to make your card can help make them feel extra special. You really can incorporate a Valentines theme into any colour scheme simply by using lots of hearts.
At Christmas gift your children a photo Christmas card of the previous years gone by when they played in the snow and pestered Santa for gifts.
