Valentines Cards / January 4, 2019 / Cecelia Montgomery
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.
But if you are looking for something a little different or more personalised why not consider incorporating your recipients interests or hobbies into your card motifs. For example if your special someone loves to travel maybe you could use the image of a compass with a heart in the middle and the words "My heart always points to you." Or if your special someone is a baseball fan you might include an image of a baseball bat and a heart-shaped baseball. Almost any theme can be easily adapted to suit a Valentines Day card. All you need to do is to work in a little heart or two and your Valentines Day message will be crystal clear. Valentines Day is traditionally a time for sending loved ones and friends greeting cards expressing how much you care about them.
Bright colors and good artwork attract kids very easily because that is the age when their creative minds are developing. Kids and children fall in love with cartons and animations because of the freshness of color used in them. When you are making a kids valentine card take special care to keep it light and simple. Graphics should not be heavy and keep the words apt for kids. Are you wondering how you can make your greeting cards special and unique? Are you trying to figure out how to impress your loved ones? This Valentines day you can gift your partner or friend a photo greeting card framed with a picture of the lovely moments you have spent together. They would treasure such items and the card would create lovely memories which they can share later with others throughout their lives.
