If you’re hoping to make an impression or to show you really care, only the best Valentine’s Day cards will do. With this romantic holiday right around the corner, what are you to do? From the romantic to the remarkable, you’re sure to find something unique with Falling Leaf Card Co. Here are a few ideas to help you brighten up the day for that special someone.
The Best Valentine’s Day Cards. Tradition or Something New?
When looking for the best Valentine’s Day cards, start by asking yourself a few questions. How long have you been with your partner? And what do you want to say with your gift? The card you choose for your second Valentine’s Day together will probably be completely different from the card celebrating your 22nd year together. That said, if you have been together for a while, you may be looking for something a little out of the ordinary to keep things fresh. Do you want to make a grand statement or do you want to keep it casual? Keep these thoughts in mind as you look for the best Valentine’s card.
Start with Hearts
The Batik Heart Greeting Card from Falling Leaf Card Co.
Let’s start with the quintessential symbol of Valentine’s Day: the heart. It’s a staple of the greeting card industry for a reason. It’s simple, attractive, and communicates easily. It’s a symbol that can be serious or fun, adapting to the message you want to get across.
If you browse the Valentine’s Day card selection on our website, you’ll notice that many of our cards take a unique, artistic approach to this classic design. From soft batik colors and bold patterns inspired by Andy Warhol to beautiful hearts made from roses, we provide cards that put a unique spin on a proven classic.
Flowers: Press to Impress
The Impatiens Greeting Card (Blank) from Falling Leaf Card Co.
Flowers often go hand-in-hand with greeting cards, especially on Valentine’s Day. If you’re planning to give flowers this year, consider pairing them with a card from our beautiful series of hand-painted flower or butterfly designs.
Of course, flowers can also pose a bit of a challenge, especially when trying to figure out how long they’ll last before wilting. So, if you’re looking for a creative alternative, try pressing a flower into a greeting card. Place a sheet of parchment paper over the inner right side of your card and place your flower on the inner left side. Secure the greeting card in the middle of a heavy book (such as a phone book or The Complete Works of William Shakespeare) and then keep the book pressed down with a weight. Leave it undisturbed for several days (up to 10 is recommended), and then you’re set!
Consider Adding Music
The Monarch Butterfly Greeting Card (Blank) from Falling Leaf Card Co.
Who doesn’t enjoy music? Lyrics always make a great addition to your greeting card—and so do concert tickets for date night! While mix tapes are a thing of the past and the recent innovations in digital music often outshine CDs, it’s always great to share some music that is meaningful to both of you. Making a mix CD is a great gift whether you’d like to introduce your partner to some of your favorite music or reminisce over your favorite ballads from the past. While it’s always a good idea to include some songs you’re both familiar with, try spending some time searching for new music or for musicians you’ve never heard of. In the end, you’d probably spend the same amount of time searching for a box of assorted chocolates in the grocery store. Why not do something a little more special instead?
