Valentines Cards / January 3, 2019 / Gladys Hayden
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.
There are good cards that will do the job for you. Start by visiting your local card store to see the kind of funny cards they have for the day of love. If you do not find anything interesting you can look for those cards that are online. Online cards are very dynamic and you can actually manipulate them to ensure that they become just like you want. You will get to add your funny messages and this is a very good thing to do. Funny Valentine cards do not have to be written or designed by a professional comic; we all have the ability to make somebody smile if nothing else. Funny Valentine cards are made comical by the messages and also the kind of images they have. Pictures of a smiling dog or a horse are enough to get you smiling. The way the funny pictures that are put will also make for a funny card.
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.
