Creative Valentine Card Ideas

Valentine card ideas can be found everywhere during this romantic season, check out magazines, commercials, department stores, and other places for inspiration.

It doesn't require a lot of money or time to make your special someone a unique card that will be better than any other greeting card you could purchase in the store.

Making your own homemade card also let's you get creative and incorporate different aspects of your special relationship into your very own creation.

Don't feel compelled to go out a buy those perfect pieces of decorative paper. Look around at what you might have one hand.

Hearts, reds, and pinks are not the only way to express love.

Here are some ideas to help you with your own personalized handmade Valentine Card Ideas:

  • Try using different colors to express yourself. What about deep purples, blue, or even oranges and yellows.

  • Add texture to your card using ribbons, strips of fabric, lace, or colored mesh

  • Colored craft jewels is always a fun way to add dimension and glamor to handmade cards

  • Include a special memento from your relationship into the card: a ticket stub, a photograph, a handwritten poem

  • Instead of saying "Happy Valentine's Day," what about personalizing your message with their special nickname or a private joke.

Valentine's Day is a time to celebrate each other - there are countless ways to express your special connection, it's only a matter of choosing how to express it!

If you have a little time before sending your love to your Valentine, try baking some scrumptious Valentine's Day Cupcakes to make your gift extra sweet.

Make This Simple Handmade Valentine Card!

Here is a very easy handmade Valentine's Day card to make for your partner. I used antique looking paper with silvery stamped letters to make this tri-fold card. I love the contrast of the silver ink against the aged looking paper and the type face of the letters really add character to the whole card.

An Anniversary Card that could also be an adorable Valentine Card

I made this card recently for my fiancee to celebrate our 3-year Anniversary. I chose to write "Baby Doll" to adorn the front of this card because it's a silly nickname that I have for him.
