How to Create the Perfect Valentine's Day Card

A love card surrounded by roses

Valentine’s Day can be a stressful holiday to live up to, but you can make it special for your loved one in small and meaningful ways. Participate in the long-loved tradition of expressing your love by making or giving a Valentine’s Day card to someone you care about. Make this lovely holiday one to remember in your Hollywood, FL apartment by trying one of the ideas in today’s The Club at Emerald Waters blog post.

Bouquet of Hearts Card from Make and Takes

You don’t have to switch a real bouquet out for this one, but this can be a fun teaser to the real thing! With some cardstock and colored paper, markers, ribbon, and glue, you can make your card pop with the hearts that almost fly off the page.

All the Fish in the Sea Valentine Printable from Oh Happy Day

This idea is as easy as “one, two, three!” Just download the printable, print it out on your favorite colored paper, cut and fold, and tape or glue a bag of goldfish crackers in the hand. If you’re careful about how you cut around the fingers, you can even make it look like the hand is actually holding the bag! If your recipient doesn’t like goldfish crackers, try some Swedish fish, or other fish-themed candy.

“Thumbody” Loves You: Thumbprint Valentines from Simply Kierste Design

This craft is perfect for pun-lovers. Get your hands (or your thumbs!) dirty by grabbing an ink or stamp pad and using your thumbs to create mini figures. Use the printable on the site or create your own card and design by using a different font. We also like the idea of using a bunch of your fingers or a friend or family members’ fingers, as well as your thumb to mix things up.
