Valentines Cards / January 3, 2019 / Imelda Chang
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.
Women connect emotionally and for this reason they like to communicate something deeper to recipients.

There are so many other features and this goes to show that women send the right cards to the people they love. If you are a woman it is essential to know that Valentines cards bought by women need to suit their purpose. In other words you need to know how to choose them if you want to please the person you love. There are several things that you need to consider which include the following.
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.
