Chic and Clever Valentine Card Ideas
Posted by Kevin Sharkey
Valentine's Day is only a week away, and now is the time to start sending out your Valentine's Day cards to friends and family. It doesn't matter how you are sending your holiday cards, as long as they are beautiful and fun.
Now you can go green by choosing e-cards (Paperless Post has a fabulous selection) or take the traditional approach and mail-out stylish cards from iconic stationers like Crane & Co. or Mrs. John L. Strong.
Take a look at my top picks for chic Valentine's Day cards in 2011...
1 A closer look at a card from Mrs. John L. Strong.
2 Mrs. John L. Strong has such chic Valentine's Day cards -- the "I Only Have Eyes For You" card is placed in a gorgeous envelope that has a festive red interior.
3 A simple and elegant Valentine's Day card from Crane & Co.
4 Another festive Valentine's Day card from Crane & Co.
5 The classic?"XO" sign on a Crane & Co. card.
6 Paperless Post has chic cards and is a great way to send go-green cards for Valentine's Day.
7 Another Paperless Post Valentine's -- this is such a fun '80s inspired card.
8 "Our Love Is Here to Stay." A Paperless Post Valentine's Day card.
9 This Paperless Post's card has chic text.
10 A Martha Stewart card that is very easy to make and has a non-traditional look that your Valentine will love.
11 A small and glamorous gift to give to friends for Valentine's Day (pens from Iomoi).
12 Instead of sending friends and family an ordinary box of chocolates, put small secret messages that will be discovered under the sweets.
13 Candy buttons cut in the shape of a heart will fit perfectly in an envelope.
14 These small but chic button-heart cuff links are easy to send to a Valentine.
15 A small box of matches from Iomoi for Valentine's Day is an unexpected yet creative gift.
16 A Mirror Button from Johnderian.com.
17 My colleague, Emily, made these gorgeous cards. I purchased them at the Martha Stewart Craft Fair a few months ago.
