Valentines Cards / January 3, 2019 / Lauri Cooke
Many people can really get into this because all you need to start are a few materials that you can easily get. There are many things you can use to produce good ones and it will all depend on the theme you wish to take with the cards. Take time to ensure that you make cute ones that will impress your friends. Do not forget that the best way to impress is to tailor make cards for the personalities of people close to you. With this golden rule you can never go wrong. Valentines cards bought by women are quite distinct. This is because women are very detailed and they like to pay attention in all the right places. Valentines cards bought by women are really for the purpose of communicating love and affection. The following are some of the major features of the cards. First they are personal.
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.
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.
