Valentines Cards / January 3, 2019 / Eve Owen
3. Your card design Working out how to arrange everything on your card can be a little tricky. I like to use card sketches whenever I am making a card. It makes the process so much quicker and less stressful as they show you just how to arrange everything without cramping your style. The most important thing with handmade Valentine cards is the fact that you have put your thoughts into it and used your time and energy on making them. I believe that it is a much greater value than making the prettiest or most creative card of them all. The receiver will most of the time be very grateful for the handmade card regardless of the result. To figure out how you want the cards to look like it helps to know the receivers well. That way you can create custom-made cards that suit the receivers style or interests.
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.
The 14th of February that special and romantic day dedicated to lovers and those who are in love. Flowers cards and romantic gestures are given and received and the world becomes a wool place of hearts bunnies and soft violin music. Yeah right! Do you think that Valentines Day is about pranks on your friends? Maybe you are the friend who never receives a Valentines card and are sick of being the one left on the shelf? Whatever the reason youre going to love this idea we have come up with especially for Valentines Day. Giving Valentines to your classmates used to include endless hours of making them out of construction paper cute dollies and with painstaking attention to all the details. It was a project that was done at home for each individual child in the class.
