Valentines Cards / January 3, 2019 / Gladys Hayden
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.
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.
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.
