Valentines Cards / January 1, 2019 / Imelda Chang
2. Your embellishments. Once again there are literally thousands of Valentines embellishments to choose from. There is everything from stickers to 3D stickers to rub-ons to chipboard to stamped images...the list is endless. You can even make your own with scraps of patterned paper. Whatever you choose make sure it matches your color scheme and is something the recipient of your card will appreciate. If your special someone hates teddy bears and roses do not use them. If you are struggling for Valentine card ideas think about what the recipient loves to do. If he loves to fish perhaps you could use a fishing hook with a heart on the end or if he likes football you could feature a football with a heart in the middle. Featuring your special someones favourite hobbies and activities will help express just how much you care about them.
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.
There are good cards that will do the job for you. Start by visiting your local card store to see the kind of funny cards they have for the day of love. If you do not find anything interesting you can look for those cards that are online. Online cards are very dynamic and you can actually manipulate them to ensure that they become just like you want. You will get to add your funny messages and this is a very good thing to do. Funny Valentine cards do not have to be written or designed by a professional comic; we all have the ability to make somebody smile if nothing else. Funny Valentine cards are made comical by the messages and also the kind of images they have. Pictures of a smiling dog or a horse are enough to get you smiling. The way the funny pictures that are put will also make for a funny card.
