Valentines Cards / January 1, 2019 / Imelda Chang
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.
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.
At Christmas gift your children a photo Christmas card of the previous years gone by when they played in the snow and pestered Santa for gifts. But Valentines day cards continue to outsell all other cards for every other holiday except for Christmas and New Year. Children love to receive candy and cards anytime. To get the perfect photo Christmas card plan in advance and keep your camera ready. When you get a great "picture moment" start clicking. If you want to get a good family picture for Christmas you can use a tripod and take a lovely family photo. Photo greeting cards go easy on your pocket also as they are very cost effective. These photo cards can be printed and designed at very economical rates. The additional advantage is the variety of these cards which make it even popular.
