Valentines Cards / January 2, 2019 / Kelly Roberson
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.
Know all the little details that will please them in this regard and start working on this. You can also choose to go with cute Valentines cards that can be found at your local store. Go through the latest ones and see all the cute ones. There are men who really adore such cards and the notion that they are for women only is not in order. It is good to have fun and even discuss certain cards with friends; this way you will know what to choose. Avoid being overwhelmed by bringing friends along to guide you. You can also choose to make cute Valentines cards by hand. Many people have been making them for a long time. This can become even a good hobby. An interesting hobby like this one can really make a difference in your life.
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.
