Valentines Cards / January 4, 2019 / Mara Beasley
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. But Valentines day cards continue to outsell all other cards for every other holiday except for Christmas and New Year. Children love to receive candy and cards anytime. To get the perfect photo Christmas card plan in advance and keep your camera ready. When you get a great "picture moment" start clicking. If you want to get a good family picture for Christmas you can use a tripod and take a lovely family photo. Photo greeting cards go easy on your pocket also as they are very cost effective. These photo cards can be printed and designed at very economical rates. The additional advantage is the variety of these cards which make it even popular.
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.
If your child seems to want to use only Valentines that are store bought this should be okay as well. Allow them to pick those that they find enjoyable and help them to make those for others as well. Valentines Day is a wonderful occasion for giving your loved ones handmade greeting cards but coming up with Valentine card ideas all by yourself is not always easy. After all you want your card to be special and something your loved ones will always treasure. Choosing the right motif or embellishment for your Valentine card is the key to a great card. Your embellishment generally becomes the focal point of your card and the element that stands out the most so think carefully about what you want to use. The scrapbooking industry always makes sure we have plenty of different Valentines Day embellishments to choose but do not let yourself be overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices.
