Valentines Cards / January 1, 2019 / Imelda Chang
If your child seems to want to use only Valentines that are store bought this should be okay as well. Allow them to pick those that they find enjoyable and help them to make those for others as well. Valentines Day is a wonderful occasion for giving your loved ones handmade greeting cards but coming up with Valentine card ideas all by yourself is not always easy. After all you want your card to be special and something your loved ones will always treasure. Choosing the right motif or embellishment for your Valentine card is the key to a great card. Your embellishment generally becomes the focal point of your card and the element that stands out the most so think carefully about what you want to use. The scrapbooking industry always makes sure we have plenty of different Valentines Day embellishments to choose but do not let yourself be overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices.
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.
With crochet you can create almost anything you want and attach it to the Valentine card. Flowers hearts letters words and more. When making small crochet pieces you dont need much yarn at all you can just use leftovers you have from other creations. For Valentines Day some small crochet hearts would suit perfectly as decorations attach to the Valentine card. If you are not sure how to make these hearts you can use the free receipt for a small crochet heart that I found on the website noted at the bottom of this article. These hearts are also suitable to decorate presents with. Just glue them to the paper or use double-sided tape to attach them. A Valentine card does not necessarily have to be a typical folded card there are no rules to follow. Use your creativity and make something new fun and different.
