Valentines Greetings / January 5, 2019 / Eve Owen
Of course the field tends to be dominated in sheer numbers by the Internet presences of the longtime major card companies Hallmark and American Greetings. As you might expect Hallmarks electronic offerings are wide-ranging and diverse with an emphasis on heartwarming cuddly fun and humorous options that feel unfailingly familiar. The same goes for American Greetings also noteworthy for the creativity of such options as "Valentines Day Notes" which lets the sender click drag and assemble a personal fun message from a hodgepodge of romantic phrases much like those popular magnetic poetry kits on so many refrigerator doors. While both ecard websites offer a smattering of relatively simple free cards to send customers who want to deliver the best offerings have to pay for individual cards from Hallmark or a membership from American Greetings which might lead some to hesitate a moment and wonder if paying for e-greetings that feel slightly homogenized is really worth the money.
A popular one by Fred Jacob is that love is like fine wine and it gets better with age. Another on that I found especially interesting is by Diane Ackerman which goes like this everyone admits that love is wonderful yet no one agrees on what it is. These are sayings that are truly food for thought. There are so many others that will amaze you while others will crack you up with laughter. Valentine and love are really synonymous and most sayings will be pegged on love. If you have an opinion about love why not let the world know what it is all about. You might turn heads with yours. There are other sayings that are just negative when it comes to love. Other people may consider the sayings practical and even truthful. One that comes to mind goes like this love is like a toilet and those who are inside want to get out while those who are out want to get in.
When it comes to artistry and uniqueness in animated electronic ecards however nothing may compare with the creations that Scandinavian-born artist and designer Frederikke Tu offers at Ojolie. The Valentine ecards currently available on the website to which Tu adds more designs every month include such tasteful undeniably classy often exquisitely beautiful and moving images. These are animated to music such as "Trumpeter Swans" in which haunting flute music plays while cherry blossom petals waft across a mountain lake where two swans glide toward each other their necks forming a heart reflected in the still waters. "Peony" featuring a beautiful flower that blossoms and then becomes part of the pattern on a lovely Japanese womans kimono as she stands beside a tranquil lake scene; and "Love Dance" depicting the courtship of two Japanese red-crowned cranes an elegant natural ballet of timeless devotion.
