Valentine’s Day may not be the most important holiday of the year, but it does happen to be one of our favorites, if for no other reason than its perfect timing. It brightens our winters and gives us something to look forward to, just when we need it most. Everybody can use a little love in February!
Kids love Valentine’s Day, and not just because it may involve candy. It’s the one time of year they get to send a secret message to their friends. The message–whether it’s true love or best friends forever–is what it’s all about.
Coming up with cute ways to decorate their valentines and the bags or boxes they use to collect them at school, is all a part of the fun. After you’ve chosen the perfect kids Valentine’s Day cards, check out our valentine stickers to match (or not). Kids can have fun sticking them on folders and notebooks, or to decorate valentines and V-day projects at school. They’re also fun for giving away. In fact, stickers rank pretty high on Mom’s list of Valentine’s Day ideas for kids, because they’re a treat without being a sweet. Don’t get stuck without them!
Are you planning to send valentine cards that friends and family will love? Then you should spend a little time thinking about valentine photo ideas, first. There is one simple thing you can do to make your photos pop: use props!
Since most Valentine’s Day photo cards share a palette of pinks and reds, adding a shot of pink or red to your photo is a fun way to tie your photo into the card design. A cute prop, such as a big candy heart or a flower that matches the colors in your card, makes it look like the card and photo were meant for each other.
Real cards created by real people like you!
We love looking at the cards our customers create, seeing the ways you put your personal stamp on our designs and make them your own. So we decided it would be fun to feature a few each month as inspiration for all of us.
This month, love was definitely in the air. Valentine’s Day cards were very popular, and many of you seemed to agree with us that personalized Valentine’s Day card ideas are better at getting to the heart of the matter. This Sweetheart Photo Valentine’s Day Card is one of our favorites because it does just that, with style and personality. The unique heart-shaped design and the gorgeous photo of this card combine to create the perfect valentine message to family and friends. We would feel very special and loved if we got one of these beautiful cards in the mail. And that’s what Valentine’s Day is all about—making someone else feel loved.
It’s Valentine’s Day! We hope you have a lovely, love-filled day planned.
