Puppies melt everyone’s heart. I would like to ask you a question. We certainly should use them as a design element on your card? So it’s a great alternative if you’re tired of the classic fluffy puppy on the cover of virtually any kind of card. Have a look at the funny illustration above, of two pugs in love.
Sometimes an easy, beautiful illustration is all it requires.
While offsetting the dark brown with a touch of bright dark red, with hearts floating out of the bike’s basket, for couples who enjoy biking, the card above is a nice example.
Bonus points if whatever you’ve chosen to depict means something to your better half. Use texture check the playful example above by awesome Beci Orpin. Use an unconventional color palette and imagery. Produce visuals for your love creation on the basis of the copy you are featuring. Notice, it gives the classic Love is in the air a fun spin. http://topwebdesignny.com This is where it starts getting really serious. Probably one of my favorite examples in the list is this awesome card on Etsy.
Change the shape of your card, either into an airplane or a cute miniature flower filled box. Please do not shy away from a completely unconventional shape or approach, like the one above, as you explore different ideas. Create texture by stitching your design instead. Like the lovely heart stitch above, it should be a showcase of your hidden sewing talent or a straightforward design. Besides, not everything you design has to be printed either. In this context it get familiar with the lovely example above, where the designer has combined printing methods to produce quite simple, clean card. Try debossing and foil stamping or letterpressing and embossing, if you are not sure what methods to combine. Keep it real and try a simple phrase that cuts to the point.

Furthermore, turn meaningful dates or numbers into design elements to use as your build your Valentine’s Day card.
Use the aww factor in your card and design something adorable featuring animals.
Bonus points the entire card.
