Valentines Cards / January 2, 2019 / Laurel Hawkins
3. Your card design Working out how to arrange everything on your card can be a little tricky. I like to use card sketches whenever I am making a card. It makes the process so much quicker and less stressful as they show you just how to arrange everything without cramping your style. The most important thing with handmade Valentine cards is the fact that you have put your thoughts into it and used your time and energy on making them. I believe that it is a much greater value than making the prettiest or most creative card of them all. The receiver will most of the time be very grateful for the handmade card regardless of the result. To figure out how you want the cards to look like it helps to know the receivers well. That way you can create custom-made cards that suit the receivers style or interests.
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.
