Valentines Cards / January 4, 2019 / Mara Beasley.
2. Your embellishments. Once again there are literally thousands of Valentines embellishments to choose from. There is everything from stickers to 3D stickers to rub-ons to chipboard to stamped images...the list is endless. You can even make your own with scraps of patterned paper. Whatever you choose make sure it matches your color scheme and is something the recipient of your card will appreciate. If your special someone hates teddy bears and roses do not use them. If you are struggling for Valentine card ideas think about what the recipient loves to do. If he loves to fish perhaps you could use a fishing hook with a heart on the end or if he likes football you could feature a football with a heart in the middle. Featuring your special someones favourite hobbies and activities will help express just how much you care about them.
And it was one that great pride was taken in doing. Today there are much fewer families making Valentines and many more just buying a box of them to give out to their classmates with a simple signature on the back of them. This has happened mainly because of how commercialized the holiday has become. As manufacturing techniques have gotten better and more cost effective that is the way that American school children have gone. Before this in the 1960s a book of valentines could be purchased. Children could actually cut out the cards from the book personalize them with lace trim or even with candy and then send them on. But it wasnt long before children were ready to skip the cutting out part altogether. The Puns Who hasnt smirked at the cute sayings that are placed on the Valentines cards? Such sayings as "Im Sweet On You" have been used for years and years.
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.
