Valentines Cards / January 1, 2019 / Francisca Mccarty
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.
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.
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.
